    Since many of us will be wearing face masks before too long, let's turn them in to a fashion item! :)

    My wife has to wear them all day long and since she likes wildlife she has a range of animal masks to wear. It's catching on and now other colleagues are choosing p*ssy-cat and puppy-dog masks, or parrots..etc.

    I'm looking around for a scowling old misery mask for me, but they're not so popular on the E-sales websites!! :D tiger.jpg

    I've decided to affix a child's dummy (pacifier) to mine, just to keep people guessing. :oops:

    I just have a plain black one. Our job gave us a plain white one. I find it ridiculous to have designer masks. Though, it makes people feel better. I read some behaviors can give people a sense of control over some things they're not familiar with on a daily basis. I wear an easy cotton mask so I can fold it up and jog and take it out if I need to go into a building.

    Artistic, but not necessarily functional.

    At the beginning of the outbreak our local conveyance store owner had homer Simpson masks.

    But fashion masks will surely catch on. Folks can be so fashion conscious, and a face covering must seem as important as a coat or hat... :)

    Let's see what happens.

    Is that the royal "we"? ;-)

    Second was produced by volunteers for the local community in association with the mairie with patterns and materials provided free by the government. Unfortunately summer is here now and they are a wee bit warm to wear

    Evidence is accumulating that SARS-coV-2 can become aerosolized. Simple masks may be fairly effective at stopping droplets, but individual, aerosolized viruses may pass through them like flies through a chain link fence. I've noticed many masks don't fit well, either, with wide gaps at the sides and around the nose.
    :(

    How close are you to people?

    Paramedics wear masks that look like from the ghost busters. I'm sure the everyday public doesn't need all that.

    I buy my KN95 masks from Staples. They protect me, and not just other people.

    You're around a lot of people?

    I usually wear something simple since I don't have symptoms and the social distancing thing helps just in case I sneeze. People get jumpy so.

    even a partially effective mask is better than none at all...better still is keeping distance (6 feet/2 meters is a minimum, not absolute) and reducing time within snotshot makes a partially effective mask more effective...

    Yup they're not perfect. But they are a damn site better than no mask.

    I've got a light weight one to wear outside, a couple of thick ones for indoor use and a bunch of surgical masks for long term indoor or special situation use.

    ....Unless the public is moving through clouds of suspended viruses, wafting slowly through a room, like smoke from a cigarette. There's also a new, more contagious strain spreading about, so far fewer inhaled viruses are needed to contract Covid 19. Mutated COVID-19 Viral Strain in U.S. and Europe 10 Times More Contagious than Original Strain
    Agreed, but if airborn, rather than droplet transmission is found to be significant, high risk individuals might choose to go with the most effective masks they can obtain.
