the exhaust valve mask are impossible to find.
When I flew back from Brazil last week Delta was making people remove the mask with the exhaust valve and use a different one. Said they were not allowed. But a fishing buff was fine. Clown world.

A lot of ICU staff have been doubling up with a surgical mask over a N-95 for a quite while. Personally, I do not. I use a N-95 or N-100 with a full face shield, plus gown and gloves. We can spend anywhere between an 5 minutes or 2 hours with a critical COVID patient at one event (checking an alarm or suctioning an ET tube to intubation-vent set up-CXR or a code) so I can understand the thinking. I can't see it for trips to Publix ....then again, maybe Walmart the 1st few days after the government checks come in, .

Funny flying was mentioned. I caught pneumonia about 16 years ago while flying to a ski trip. A couple were coughing up a storm 6 rows behind me. 3 days later I was coughing yellow and spiking a fever. From that time I always try to sit in the last row and Clorox wiped my seat. Got some funny looks from a few flight attendants back before COVID when I was flying frequently. If I were to fly today, I would use a N-95 and face shield and might consider doubling up.

Sure wish you were in charge of this clown show. It really is that simple.

It’s hard enough to breathe with one mask let alone two masks.

Maybe we are missing the point of doubling up masks.

When the pandemic started, there was a mask shortage. In true American style, manufacturers leaped into action to meet demand. As usual, too many masks are being produced now, producers are cutting prices and there is a risk too many mask producers will go out of business, creating yet another shortage. Simple solution? Issue "guidance" that doubles demand.

Joking, but this makes as much sense of some of the other stuff I'm hearing.

Fauci is and has been a bureaucrat for 40 years, he hasn't been a Dr. for a long, long time.

Simple. Let the world go on. If you don't like it, stay home.

CDC orders early on. They banned the valve masks.
Before others were avail to the peons.

Fauci said later on that you need to “do what you are told”.

Fauci is getting extremely rich.

I believe it. I believe many government rules and guidances are made at the behest or direct intervention of special interests.

And the vented N95 masks do not protect others. Remember, we all MUST wear masks because we MIGHT be asymptomatic and MIGHT infect others...

I'll read about you being tossed in a chilled trailer behind the hospital in the near future or a long hualer (thats what they are called) with ongoing health issues for years.

Hell retract his recommendation after a dozen people drive their cars into trees because of a lack of oxygen. The more he talks the less respect I have for that guy. I think the spread has more to do with people touching things with the virus on the surface. Keep your hands clean.

I was talking to a Dr in my restaurant the other day, he had already had the vaccine and was still wearing a mask while sitting with his wife and friends. I asked him why he was still wearing the mask and he said that you still need the mask for at least one more year. I guess there's no point in getting the vaccine if I still have to wear a mask. I will not be wearing a mask for the rest of 2021. His wife was laughing at him, she didn't drink the kool-aid.

I put one colander into another so it will hold twice as much water.

I use two coffee filters in my coffee machine to make sure I don't get any coffee grinds in my coffee.

Clearly whoever uttered the quoted phrase above has no understanding of filtration and does not have a diesel powered boat.

Studies have shown that visiting with friends and going out to do things like eat and attend sporting events are one of the keys to longevity seen by those who live in the Blue Zones. Socializing being a key component of both mental and physical well being.

And since I visit with friends and family weekly, I'm guessing it's more beneficial than it is risky. But continue to be a hermit if that's what makes you feel safe...I don't don't fault anyone for taking precautions.

I would, however, lay off statements like the bolded part suggesting that you are actively waiting to read about someone succumbing to the virus just because they have a difference of opinion.

It's rather unbecoming, and downright hateful to be honest.

We are all oh so proud of you for fighting the good fight by holing yourself up and going to the same stores the rest of us go to in the off hours. It's also promising to hear that your social life was just as lame before the virus, so my hope is that this has not affected your life a great deal.

I heard Fauci has a Freeman on order. He’ll be in the bilge shortly spreading his wisdom. Watch for his code name, flip flop doc.

For those who "Believe in Science", This is a new virus. about a year out, science is still in the realm of the unknown. Things would be a lot better if experts told the truth and said, "I don't know". No one has a clue.
