Face Masks Found
I use masks when doing construction work to handle the concrete and wood dust, poly, etc. Annie of the local Fast Squad put out a message that they were short on masks so I looked in my workshop and found I had a whole new box on the shelf which I sent to her.
When I go out on deliveries I use a custom fitted N99 reusable mask and cotton gloves. Despite the statements that were in the media from the government, these precautions are important and make a difference. The gloves can be turned inside out when returning to the vehicle. Then they can be thrown in the wash to be cleaned and sanitized for reuse. Cotton gloves are idea, better than plastic, latex or nitrile for most situations with the pandemic. The masks can also be sanitized by heating. The coronavirus is lipids and protein which are unstable with heat and soap. Simple ways to reuse.
Fancy masks are not even required. If you have nothing else, use a scarf in multiple layers. The COVID-19 is carried on droplets of water through the air. The droplets are large, relative to fabrics, and easily trapped. Simple at home on-demand protection. Make do.
Why did the Fast Squad need masks? Apparently supplies do not filter easily down even within government who has them to where they may be needed. Check your garage, workshop and closets to see if you might have masks and other supplies that are needed by first responders and health workers. It will make a difference for someone and perhaps from there to many someones.
Push down the curve.
