I can not wear a n95 or paper mask. So I have been wearing an MSA dual filter mask, with a smoked shield and a plastic WWII German helmet. A low budget Darth Vader look.
It shocked a lot of folks, scared a doctor when he walked into the room to see me. Wrong doctor too.
Doctor’s PPE circa 1450ad
Over on Amazon and other places you can get a doctors plugue mask for $20. It is PPE.
Here is the one I should get in a few days.
one of many

I bought 2 similar buffs. I absolutely hate the Chinese crap n95s being sold today that hook on behind the ears. What a POS design! They have no seal and they are constantly falling down requiring one to keep pulling them back up. What’s one of the things we’re not supposed to do? That’s right, don’t touch the face but those masks demand it.
But the buffs stay up if one pulls the back of it up to where a properly worn gas mask or properly made mask would have a strap at the top back of the head. Then I put my wide brim hat on and no one can even tell who I am. But that’s only for where they’re required. The n95s being sold today do nothing and neither does the buff I wear. It’s just WuFlu theater to help keep the fear alive and foment chaos in the hope that socialism will be allowed to take hold.
I entered the hospital the other day clad from the neck up as I just described. I didn’t know it but someone also going to the gym there was near me and entered right behind me. When I removed my get up she was surprised to see it was me since all that can be seen are my eyes and glasses.
I don’t fear WuFlu. I had it and survived w/o help before anyone even knew what to call it (early/mid Feb’) and I have 2 high risks strikes against me. It’s simply not a problem for most folks with normal health. Having it was/is no fun, but it’s not a death sentence for most folks. If someone is at high risk the solution is really simple. Take control of your health and do what you must to stay safe. But don’t ask others to take part in stupid theatrical crap with health threatening props to demonstrate how much they care.
Q: OK, quiz question… where did the 6’ distancing come from?
A: a high school student postulated it for a science fair and made a computer model that “proved” that it works. It has no basis in studied science fact in the real world. It’s yet another part of WuFlu theater and nothing more.
Want to know about how to combat it? It’s “cell wall” is composed of fat. It can’t last for long on an absorbent surface and that’s why soap works to destroy it. It also can’t tolerate heat and it dies in seconds of exposure to UV rays. That’s why when I was having my bout with it the Southern US was remarkably free of it. The people there were outside in the warmth and UV rays from the sun. Then when the south went into A/C, that would be now, and out of the outdoor heat, they are also out of the UV from the sun and into temps that C-19 can live in, so their cases are now spiking. I expected this and I’m not even a Dr… So where are the supposed experts? Why didn’t they warn about it or educate folks? My answer is that they wanted it to happen. If I knew this and expected it they should have.
To their credit there are thousands of Drs speaking up but do you hear of their protests in the media? I have only run across them on the 'net. The MSM is fully in bed with hiding the truth yet again. True patriotic warriors of the truth! (that’s a crock!)
Musta been a very old kid. The plague doctors carried (6 ft) (1.5 to 2 meter sticks according to Ohio State History Professor)(how ever long that is) sticks to check the afflicted with.
Another curious fact. In the DOD manual for basic training.
It states all drill sgts will stand new personnel 6 ft part.
So that every drill sgt can see all the way around every body.
Substitute the word in the line above: remove Sgt and add camera.

It is really small, made of rubber and expands and contracts with your breathing.

(junk is a boat for the clueless.)
yeah I do like them, but a bit warmer in the NC heat. We actually found a pack of painter masks that go behind the head with the strap we had from a while back, I will use some of those or the buffs depending
