    How many of you wear masks when you venture out in public now?

    I don’t. I do look @ those who are driving with them. Bless their hearts, indeed.

    Do much of what we have always done. Not a hugger so don't have to undo that.
    I'm actually outside as much as I can be. Do wash the hands more. Got masks but
    have not found a need. Never did like crowds.

    We do when we go food shopping. Mask and gloves. Susan made the masks. They have a pocket that accepts HEPA filter material that we cut out of ventilation filters. She made a bunch. Lot's of time on our hands, now. We sterilize them with a steam iron, then replace the filter.

    Besides, we're not taking any chances. She has Asthma and I had a heart attack in 2008 and we're 67, so we check all the boxes for increased risk. -Paul

    I don’t and haven’t but certainly understand why some do. What I don’t understand is when I see someone walking down the sidewalk wearing a mask.

    My service tech is wearing a mask, gloves and covers on his boots when he goes into a home.

    On of my DIL's is an MD in a fairly high risk area. She does the full enchilada,
    mouth cover, face mask, gloves & a full gown. Goes home removes her clothing
    to the washing machine, immediately washes them, complete shower before
    touching anything. Can't be too safe when exposed several times/day. The only
    patients venturing out are High risk.

    Wearing a mask in the store and at home depot and carry my own hand sanitizer. Absolutely don't get folks wearing gloves, as there is no evidence that the virus will breach the skin barrier, and the first time you touch anything with the glove, it's contaminated. If you touch your eye, nose, or mouth with the glove, now you're contaminated, just as you would be if you weren't wearing the glove. The gloves are only effective if you change them every time you touch ANY surface which could be contaminated.

    Nope, don't own one, want one, or want to use one! We spent Easter with my son and his family and I am going Turkey hunting with my oldest later this week...

    I haven't had the flu in over 15 years.....

    I broke down and bought a new mask today, because yesterday I was not allowed in Chipolte because I was not wearing one...bought it from a street vendor just minutes before the local police shut him down from selling those masks on the street...mine looks like it was repurposed from a previous garment, I would say about a size 36C
