Well it's finally happened here. How would you feel if face masks (or scarves) were mandatory? 馃

[center][b][u]Added edit[/u][/b][/center]
I must note this is because there is a problem with those that are asymptomatic.

That is those that may have the virus yet have no symptoms at all.

face masks and gloves don't actually work, and are only useful if you have the virus and wear the mask yourself

@Graylight here you go. And they refuse to sell outside of the US...

@DeWayfarer Thanks!

@Graylight you're welcome.

Wouldn't bother me.

@Azlotto I find it hard to breathe wearing one.馃槙馃樂
AzlottoM
@Peaches I wear one when I spray herbicides, insecticides, etc. It does take some getting used to.

It doesn't seem like such a big deal to me. I imagine I can have some fun with it. It wouldn't drastically change my life or anything. My concern is potential shortages for health care workers
DeWayfarer61-69, M
@TinyViolins scarves are acceptable.
bookerdanaM
Everyones wearing something in New York-we look like burglers!馃サ

@Peaches I'm trying believe me...You don''t have a used bra I could make a mask out of,do you?
I keep saying that on SW,I'm going to get a bad reputation!馃槵
We are probably entering the apex here,my brother knows three persons who have gotten and recovered from the virus,and by all acounts not a pleasant experience.
One does what one can obviously馃樂 and accept that which is beyond our control

PeachesF
@bookerdana That's good to know they recovered.馃槗I did see on the news the worse of it may soon be over!馃挀

@Peaches Cautiously "nobody knows". Cuomo is watching three models,none of which agree with each other. We've had two days of better stats but my county is rising.I hope its at least slowing

This is the short version

They haven't made it mandatory here at this point. My friend made us a couple of masks though.馃樂
DeWayfarer61-69, M
@Peaches just using an old head bandana for now. Some are calling me cowboy! 馃槅
PeachesF
@DeWayfarer We have those too.馃檪
Piper61-69, F
I wouldn't mind much, really. I was already planning on wearing one next time I go out in public, anyway.
hunkalove61-69, M
They became mandatory here a few days ago. But where can you buy them? Everything is closed except grocery stores and liquor and pot stores.
DeWayfarer61-69, M
@hunkalove using one of my very old head scarves which is acceptable.
hunkalove61-69, M
@DeWayfarer except they will get wet from your mouth and breath and attract the virus!
DeWayfarer61-69, M
@hunkalove no problems if the bottom hangs loose.
It is just in case you cough.
wildbill8336-40, M
I prefer be stylish... 馃

@Peaches and why I don't trust anything that doesn't need to be cleaned! Hence why I have so much 91% rubbing alcohol. 1 and a half gallons of it.
PeachesF
@DeWayfarer I know, but that stuff is so strong it dries your skin out. We can't find any hand sanitizer here. I just use gloves now when I go out.
DeWayfarer61-69, M
@Peaches easy to make hand sanitizer. Aloe gell and rubbing alcohol. 1 part rubbing alcohol to two parts aloe gell.
I'm good with that!
