    We got a shipment of 10 new masks yesterday. Making our total around 30. We also get some from local companies, and political candidates.

    But these, from the same Vermont company that provides my custom bow ties, made right there in the US, are really good. Triple layer, with an additional filter insert option, come in ever-changing fantastic designs. Often matched with bow & neckties.

    I have no financial interest in them, but having used them for about 15 years, I do recommend them for your consideration.

    BTW, we see everyone wearing stylish masks. Not the hospital-issue we first saw at the virus outbreak.

    We ourselves try to match our masks to our outfits.

    So what do you do? Match your mask to your outfit, or not wear any mask at all, per Trump policy?

    Those are nice. I have been using the KN95's mostly. I have one of the sports masks from underarmour but I have not even opened it yet because the gyms are still closed where I am.

    It is really sad. You see groups of people calling people who follow the science sheep. They are the ones that are causing the damage. It would be easy to reverse it but I'm not interested in name-calling. They say they are independent thinkers yet they use the exact same name-calling tactics and repeat the same misinformation. What kind of scientific background do these people have?

    A Supercomputer Analyzed Covid-19 — and an Interesting New Theory Has Emerged

    "According to the team’s findings, a Covid-19 infection generally begins when the virus enters the body through ACE2 receptors in the nose, (The receptors, which the virus is known to target, are abundant there.) The virus then proceeds through the body, entering cells in other places where ACE2 is also present: the intestines, kidneys, and heart. This likely accounts for at least some of the disease’s cardiac and GI symptoms."

    It's amazing how A_D can even make a topic about face makes sound soooo gay; just not home.
    I can understand a female wanting a matching mask, but not a guy who promotes himself as a real man; that's just so gay.
    I'm sure Bob's sister would agree, and her heart must go out to her nephew's.

    Doesn't sound like Dr. Fauci's is too convinced about masks. Follow the science, don't be a sheep.

    Continue to wear them 24/7 if you like - but yeast infections are on the rise and folks who do not wash them. I am forced to use them when I go into the store but as soon as I am out take it off and also at the gym not using one.

    You don't wear a mask in the gym? Glad you're gone from the Bay area. Sorry my friends in Florida but you've got this jerk now. He refuses to believe what all medical science says about the spread of Covid19, including data from countries who've handled it properly, but he's a big believer of an invisible man in the sky with infinite powers who chooses to do nothing while good people slowly suffocate to death. Demented.

    Thanks mate, just put in an order. May result in upsetting a leftie Down Under, but I'm man enough to wear one.

    Sure, I can see that. With the cotton that fills your head that should make a very effective filter for yourself.

    Actually the sheep, or perhaps lemmings would be more appropriate, are the ones who blindly believe anything Dr. Donald Trump, MD, tells them. Actually I wouldn’t mind them killing off themselves, but in this case their illness strains the health system for the rest of us, and we also risk their selfish contagion.

    cryies our self proclaimed professor of history. Yet if Obama was to make the same calls, you'd accept it; simply cherry picking again dear.

    A really nice guy has been looking for a job but has been unable to find one where he lives (La Canada/Glendale/Pasadena area). Many years experience as a bartender and recently got a Bachelors degree in Business. He has a website where he sells masks that he makes for a little extra money. He is really having a tough time right now.

    “The whole world is wearing face masks, even Donald Trump,” Berlingske pointed out.

    This apparently did not sit well with Danish health officials. They responded by noting there is little conclusive evidence that face masks are an effective way to limit the spread of respiratory viruses.

    Denmark’s extended face mask requirement takes effect: These are the rules you need to know

    Denmark now requires face masks to be worn at all indoor public places.

    The restriction is one of a number of measures announced at the end of last week by Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen, as the country attempts to bring escalating Covid-19 infections under control.
