    This can be a little overblown by the tendency to confuse the needs of healthcare workers and those of the general public. You're not stopping 100% of anything anyway, so if you're just using it at the store or on a "crowded" trail an occasional contact with your hand can only be a problem if the mask is contaminated. If you're wearing a contaminated mask, it probably stopped whatever is on it from getting to your face. Obviously better not to touch it, but still better to wear it than not.

    Thx. Make sure to turn up the volume



    A good friend turned me on to the modern lovers.

    Then I moved to new England. And drove on 128 when it’s dark at night.

    This is exactly correct, but I'm not sure it's a bad thing. For the same reason that cops aren't wearing homemade bulletproof vests, the vast majority of homemade face masks being worn are inadequate. The scarf/bandanna especially so. That's like wrapping a rubber band around your dick, and calling it a condom. Factoring in the lack of training and user error, there's little-to-no protection for the wearer or the public.

    To continue to police analogy, the mask is like the cop's hat or badge. It's a powerful social signal. Before this, when you saw someone wearing a mask, you gave them a wide berth because they were either sick or immunocompromised. If the current mask theater does that, it's a success.

    But it's a major fail if people get a false sense of security from it.
    Here’s my issue with this charade - in exchange for little to no protection for the general public, these people are continually touching their face to adjust the covering. So they inadvertently increase their exposure risk.

    Same shit for surgical masks. People are constantly touching them in public, amplifying their own exposure.

    I’d be all for everybody wearing n95s in public. Because you can train (most) people to use them effectively. Sadly our government totally failed to heed the warnings and established game plans. Oh yea, and sent a shitload of PPE to other countries. So now we fashion our own coverings at home out of our underwear in a desperate but false sense of hope.

    I will rely on frequent hand washing, homemade sanitizer, hydrogen peroxide wipes and the words of Glen Plake “Be a good neighbor, stay over there” when I have to be out. For the most part, it’s easy to maintain distance in our little town. It’s just now and then there’s random contact with stupid. Idiocracy indeed.

    Six feet has always been my minimum.
    But I prefer 60 feet. Those cats can fucking accelerate quickly.

    As someone else posted in this topic, early on: This virus has a sharp sense of irony.

    And speaking of masks, Riverside County, CA (inland SoCal) is now requiring that people wear masks when in public in the general proximity of non-family members.

    99.9% of what I post are my own photos. They are on my phone, and some of them are on TRG. So I got no links.

    TL/DR = cities that locked down harder, faster & longer during 1918 pandemic had better health and economic outcomes

    One of the key TL/DR points of the article I posted:
    The influenza pandemic in the United States occurred in three waves during 1918 and 1919. The first wave began in March 1918 and lasted throughout the summer of 1918. The more devastating second and third waves (the second being the worst) occurred in the fall of 1918 and the spring of 1919. According to one researcher:
    Spanish influenza moved across the United States in the same way as the pioneers had, for it followed their trails which had become railroads…the pandemic started along the axis from Massachusetts to Virginia…leaped the Appalachians…positioned along the inland waterways…it jumped clear across the plains and the Rockies to Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Seattle. Then, with secure bases on both coasts...took its time to seep into every niche and corner of America.

    However, the masses weren’t taking planes all over the world in 1918...we will reach that penetration MUCH sooner, I would think.
