COVID Safety Gear Available

Post by Grandpa's Spells »

My local small chain hardware store had both N95 and P100 respirators available today. I realize among some folks there is a question of mask efficacy, but for N95s you are definitely getting inbound protection, so they may be worth considering if you have vulnerable family members or people who resist mask usage. P100s could be considered overkill/funny looking but if you have someone in the househould infected it would make sense.

The fact that this is actually available in stores is somewhat concerning, but it's certainly temporary as people will start hearing about overwhelmed ICUs in the coming weeks. Makes sense to grab it, IMO.

If you're actively looking for stuff and can't find it PM me.
One of the downsides of the Internet is that it allows like-minded people to form communities, and sometimes those communities are stupid.
