    Masks are sort of a difficult subject. From what I've read the surgical ones that are popular and now unavailable on amazon really don't prevent you from catching a respiratory illness but they do help keep you from spreading it. Actually if I recall correctly the CDC is recommending aggressive handwashing at this time and doesn't recommend masks.

    It may be worthwhile to look into the N95/N99 dust masks as from what I've seen are still available and provide a greater layer of protection as they fit tighter to the face. Beyond that you may want to look into a half face respirator or gas mask, something NBC rated

    https://www.amazon.com/s?k=n95+mask&ref=nb_sb_noss_1
    https://www.amazon.com/s?k=n99+mask&ref=nb_sb_noss_1
    https://www.amazon.com/s?k=half+face...c-pltr-v2_1_12
    https://www.amazon.com/s?k=nbc+mask&ref=nb_sb_noss_2

    I do have some of the loose fitting masks and N95 dust masks. I also have an Israeli gas mask with some NBC filters but I would need to shave in order to get a full seal on my face. Honestly things would have to get much worse for me to wear any of them in public but I do have them on the shelf, the N95's won't go bad and the NBC filters have a decent shelf life.

    Actually, you’ve found good info if you wanted it.
    Watchman offered a link to respirators and suits. If you believe there is a serious threat and want real protection, that’s the way to go.
    The surgical masks you see people wearing? They aren’t designed to protect the wearer. They don’t seal out the environment. They are meant to block contamination from the wearer from being broadcasted. You’ll notice the signs in your doctor’s office that directs people with flu symptoms to wear a mask.
    There you have it.

    Thank you NotTooProudToHide and Denton for the information. I guess I will have to find a different thread for masks and such.

    I was poking around this morning and thought this wouldn't be a bad opportunity to discuss home first aid kits and general medical preps.

    https://www.amazon.com/Rapid-Care-Fi...17&sr=8-9&th=1

    I'm sure you could probably shop and find the contents of that kit cheaper but it looks a like a great starting point for a home first aid kit capable of handling most situations. It even includes masks.

    Yeah, I thought about moving it to the Ladies Section or splitting up the thread into various threads but I'm not a moderator, (HA that's a good one, Slippy the Moderator! ) we don't have a Ladies Section anymore, (the ladies got all worked up that some non-ladies were posting in the ladies only section, very tolerant of the ladies! )

    Other than that I've enjoyed reading this thread which is a micro-cosim of society.

    (Dang, sometimes I amaze myself and the 6 other knuckeheads who make up the Slippy Brand!)

    Carry on...

    Here is one recent thread re masks -

    https://www.prepperforums.net/forum/survival-gear-reviews-questions/119629-suitable-mask-biological-protection.html

    And if you type 'mask' in the site's search window.. there are discussions of masks in the recent coronovirus threads.

    You're welcome and thanks for listening.
    Maybe you should read the comments you posted while I was looking for a good discussion. I actually work in a meat department and make extra helping produce guy unload truck. I don't have any concerns for another mans hands and would advise you do the same. Post my vid if you see the logic behind it and don't post if if you won't think it will help. I wanted to share a new idea that i believe will help and I got a bunch of comments I would expect from someone really young. I was trying to share what I think is a good idea nothing more, nothing less. I am not thankful for anything posting or lack of it. I see no point is any more back and fourth between us. Best of luck in all you do

    PS this was made and posted before valentines day and it is probly a good idea to make sure your nails have no edges when your going to spend time with a woman. It ain't my first rodeo either.

    I left a breakdown and the on the idea and links in the original post that I assume you did not see. I was asking for a good back and fourth on the thought. I don't cry over people not wanting to hear and idea. I simply pointed out how dumb I believe the reactions were form simply assuming I am a distributer or something to searching for images online like the jury in the move Idiocracy as well as "loading it in a shotgun shell" it and that tells me there is not a chance or a good debate. I only kept going for others reading this to see the lack of hearing an new idea. There is links at the bottom of the original post If you want to read it and if you not want to that's ok too. Kauboy was actually reading to look for a fault or substance in the idea and that's more of that I expected, he seems really cool and it too bad there aren't more like him.
