    They do work.
    Yes, those and others with filters work.

    Problem is you'll be a pariah for wearing one of those in the health care community due to the shortage they are seeing in the hospital setting, and hence why the CDC and other are not recommending them for personal use.
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.

    it doesn't hurt to wear a mask certainly but if you don't have an underlying condition or are old it's not needed. In fact, if you're in one of those groups just stay in the house and not need a mask.

    If you are young and healthy, they would actually rather you didn't and save the masks for those who do need them. That is still the protocol, correct?
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

    Another problem is that they technically should not be reused. The longer you wear one the less of an effect it's going to have. After about 8 hours of usage it's recommended that they are replaced.

    So anybody who's putting on the same mask for days upon days, is doing more harm than good.

    You just have to let them sit for 3 days between uses, and all virus particles will die and you can re-wear them again. You would need maybe 5 or so masks to rotate. You can also try to clean them with alcohol spray.

    These things are super cheap at Home Depot IF they had stock. We will just have to wait for that to happen.

    They've really dropped the ball with their messaging on this. I haven't read on their site, but they were initially telling general public to not wear masks primarily because they wanted all limited supplies going to healthcare workers. Then more recently recommending masks for everyone going into public spaces, and have been saying now that they are effective in guarding a person from infection.

    Personally I've always believed that covering one's nose and mouth with a mask prevents bad things from getting in.

    The misinformation and disinformation coming from all directions is mind-numbing at this point.

    You can't blame them.

    They were terrified the general public would hoard the n95s if they talked them up too much. They wanted to make sure the doctors were protected first. In a month or so I would figure manufacturers will have enough for a large portion of the public to start buying and using. They really are so simple to manufacture.

    That's when
    the authorities will push their use.

    I don't blame them for initially directing all mask supplies towards healthcare workers. That was necessary.

    I do blame them though for at the same time lying to the public regarding the efficacy of wearing a mask. They are trying to walk it back now, but their confusion is already sown in the public.

    CDC panicked and lied and as a result have now put many more people in danger and have unwittingly actually aided the spread of the virus. Yes. I blame them for that.

    Trump made a fool of himself in today's press conference in concern to his lack of knowledge of what the Inspector General is and asked a reporter for "his name" Then when the reporter just looked surprised and said..well it's from the office of the inspector general..Trump just went straight to the "political hit job" crap

    His next answers about confusion regarding the Paycheck Protection act was just a complaint about how the questions are not asked nicely and positively enough an complaining about how unfair the press is


    So I turned the channel

    Mike DeWine did and hour and a half today and I listened to him and his experts

    That is all I need

    Trump could change water to wine and make the blind see and it won’t matter to some.
    †"He has a swaggering retro machismo that will give hives to the Steinem cabal" -Camille Paglia on Donald Trump

    "But, fucking with Brook is like fucking with hot shit on and ax handle. You just don't get a grip"-track5

    "Make way for the bad guy"- Tony Montana

    'This hamburger don't need no helper"- David Lee Roth

    "I wish Bon Jovi would've given me a call before he recorded all of his hits, because the lyrics would've been smarter, the melodies would've been much more smashing, and they would've sold a lot fewer records." -David Lee Roth

    "But being number one doesnít really mean jack fuck all. We sold twice as many records as other records that year (1984) that landed in the Number One position." ~Eddie Van Halen

    I will say that I'm proud of the haters of Trump today. No "orange" comments. You're really starting to understand that the Republic voted for Trump.
    You guys rock. Lol
    Just go for it!
