    Covid wedding... am I the bad guy?

    Have to agree with those who say as much as brotherly love is important, that if the man really wants to get married all he needs there is his fiancee and someone who's legally approved to say the words. I know that he would hate for you to miss hi...

    This infuriates me for you. I'm so sorry. It shouldn't be like this.

    I'm assuming you work in a medical field/clinic, compared to a retail worker wearing a mask. If I'm making the wrong assumption, please let me know. To address your article.... N95s were never designed to be worn all day, to be re-donned after use...

    If you mean they agree there is no evidence for or against, but that health care grade masks should be saved for HCWs and those dealing with likely COVID-19 cases, not the hopefully well... yes, yes they do. https://www.who.int/publications-detail/a...

    And that's an issue. Yes, retail employees are risking their lives, if not in the same way that HCWs are -- and CNAs don't get that much higher of pay in LTC/hospice than the average "manager" (aka a senior employee to the person you're dealing with...

    And in April 2020, there was a new article that said the general public wearing cloth masks may, along with other preventive measures such as hand hygiene and attempts at social distancing, help prevent spread caused by asymptomatic/presymtomatic ind...

    I probably should have been clearer as well. A few posts had dismissed cloth masks in public as ineffective (due to either poor design or quality, or poor usage) and suggested surgical/procedure masks would have at least been better for public use....

    What I have seen, more than simply dismissing them, has been questions about the effectiveness of cloth masks vs tested ones. Especially since we know nurses have died after being told to wear a plain (but still laboratory tested and certified for ...

    Agreed wholeheartedly. And even if retrospective studies controlling for mask-wearers using other social distancing strategies/hand hygiene show the masks themselves did little in preventing infections of the wearers, one thing the effort of all the...

    If you are actually supporting cottage industries, sure. As I said, I'd probably only trust my wallet to Etsy, after critical review of the product's construction. Going local is even better. I offered to pay for the masks I was sent free, at lea...

    Eh, I meant more in the metaphorical sense -- as in, only you can cover yourself. But I guess it works literally too.

    I was referring to my posterior (edit to clarify: as what I also tried to routinely cover).

    Damn. I had read about the broken arm. Was hoping no deaths yet. Thanks for the update.

    And you might have missed the point of my post -- I'm trying to address both sides of this issue. You can't make the unworried possibly sick wear masks at all times in public. Right now we're honestly lucky that no security guards have been killed ...

    Facial coverings effective?

    There is a huge difference between the wonderful random almost "hippie chic" cuteness of masks obviously made by a quilter looking at their hardest-to-stitch-through fabric and saying "Heck yeah, these would go well together", and commercial masks wi...
