    Rural gives you more space. A village of 1800 people doesn’t compare w downtown Boston or Midtown Manhattan.

    Where would you even find a mask in a small community in NS ?

    I've only gone out (aside from going to work) when absolutely necessary. I've seen people wearing disposable gloves but we don't have any of those. And I did the food delivery thing once but I've given up on that since most places have been out of everything each time I've tried since. :(

    As a few others have said wearing a mask is not useful for us normal folks. If you felt inclined, the 2200 MPR or above furnace filters are rated 70% effective at around 0.3 microns. The N95 masks that are commonly used are like 95% at that size. I've heard of people using vacuum filters too, I'm not sure how that stuff is rated but somehow I doubt it actually stops anything below 1 micron.

    If I get the virus its going to be something I touched that someone else with it touched or somehow transferred the virus onto the surface I touched, a mask isn't going to help that. If I thought I might have it Id wear the mask but I probably wouldn't go out if that was the case.

    Yes but only because it's easier to identify an unmasked public masturbator.

    There are people who are in need of those masks way more than I am.

    Not to say I’m immune, a mask won’t help much anyways.

    I get a lot of amazon for business ..
    I pick up boxes with gloves then leave them in the garage for a few days.
    I hear the people suffering the worse are the hookers.
    Meanwhile the sex doll business is booming ... :p:p:p

    when I go to the supermarket. I have a mask and gloves on. I recently discovered I had masks and gloves I bought during the last ebola scare I forgot about. the flights from Africa were allowed to continue so I bought them.

    My wife happened to buy a 2 pack of Lysol a while back...but that’s it. Those are tucked away in the off chance any of us get sick. Have 2 things of Clorox wipes as well. I’ve noticed the other day that all of a sudden laundry detergent is suddenly also becoming a problem...it’s just unreal.

    I've been using HEB delivery for a while now, and bought a food saver / vacuum sealer a while back. Living in Houston, I try to always keep a few weeks of pantry-type items ready (hurricanes can be a *****) and a full freezer. So, when this first came to light I did some over-ordering. Stocked up on the canned goods / pasta / beans and rice. I've got plenty of everything else, so it's work from home and ride it out for me.

    I wear a mask. People don't seem to pay any attention now. I have a 97 year old relative I care for. If they get it they die. I don't care if anyone does stare.

    I wash my hands as soon as I get inside. I'm just trying to save the lysol because I haven't had any luck finding 1 or 2 more cans. If any of us get it, I want to be able to hopefully be able to have it to deal with it.

    I bought a vacuum sealer too to try and keep stuff as long as possible and I have to say, definitely a great purchase. Absolutely love that thing, it's awesome :cool:

    "A mask only helps if you're sick" --- You could be asymptomatic and have it -- but have no idea. All the claims like "wearing a mask doesn't help! only if you're sick" are just dumb and also cause people to believe that whoever is wearing a mask is sick.

    I'm Asian and it is super normal for east asians to wear a mask outdoors whether they're sick or not in times like this just like Sars and h1n1. You should wear a mask as you might be asymptomatic. But you only need one. Stanford published a paper saying you can sterilize your mask in an oven. 160F for 30mins or 10mins over water vapor.
