    Some of the millions of Americans who*remain relegated to their homes due to shelter-in-place orders*are using that time to sew and assemble masks out of spare and recycled fabric, elastic and other materials.*

    Experts advise, however, that while the homemade alternatives can create a loose-fitting barrier that may mitigate the spread of some germs, they are not designed to block the spread of COVID-19, the official name of the pandemic that has swept the globe.

    “The only mask that the CDC considers safe from you getting the coronavirus, the only way to actually prevent you from inhaling it, is the N95 mask,”*Captain Michael Doyle, a U.S. Army New York National Guard physician assistant, told USA TODAY. Doyle is the commanding officer at the drive-in coronavirus testing site in New Rochelle, New York.

    Masks are needed for the entire industry. Not just those dealing with COVID patients.
    We aren't discussing making masks to prevent infectious disease workers from spreading COVID. We are discussing supplying an entire industry with replacement masks for their regular duties.

    Being a die hard prepper, I have plenty on hand for the cat, enough to run into the end of September.

    That is just canned food, comes in 48 can cases, then there is the dry food.

    Now with the dogs, an even longer supply of food a year plus I would guess,

    longer if they eat any intruders that were terminated in whatever manner, fang or HS projectile.

    I stocked up on masks well before this pandemic. Going to donate most of my stash to our local healthcare providers. Never saw this shortage coming. Keeping a couple dozen for ourselves.

    If it came down to it, I would share either way,

    I do have hundreds of cans of sardines, mackerel and oysters,we can all eat if needed.

    I hate freshwater fish, and I live on a lake,

    it would take a lot of hunger and Texas Pete for me to eat the bass and pike in the lake.

    I would clean out the snappers first, after the turkeys and ducks.

    Just don't feed your best friend "Old Roy", or he will be dead in a year. For sure.
