FWIW... surgical masks are NOT designed to protect the wearer from breathing in airborne viruses. They are designed to protect people around you from breathing in YOUR airborne viruses.

That said, they are better than nothing. They will keep droplets out of your lungs. Don't touch the outsides when you remove them, and you can reuse them until they get gross.

Self-made multi layer cloth masks are actually 'better' because they can be reused by washing in soapy water and dryed. Hence the CDC recommendations.

I think this article is free. It describes some mask basics:

Thanks for the heads up. I was getting tired of the bandana, which I think is not the best protection, and I'm no good a sewing.

They probably are, when are they arriving? That’s the only reason why I haven’t ordered these from Amazon.

Everyone wearing masks is more than your protection...it's to prevent you from infecting someone else. Even if the cloth mask takes 50% of the "droplets" out of a cough, it's doing its job.

I should take the hit for the team and order a big box at gouge prices. Sure shootin', the day they arrive, the virus will magically disappear rendering the masks worthless.

Loopie/Loopy with a loop, get the premium case, it has a thicker bezel for a screen protector.
Wife has it in black carbon fiber. Had a white marble one.

perfect timing - My son was told today that all employees are required to wear one starting Monday (after being told for three weeks that they couldn't). They were only given two apiece though.

I placed my order on 4/14/2020. Cost $18.69 shipped. "Arriving May 8 - Jun 1"

I'm in no rush and, I won't be surprised if they arrive earlier than May 8.

I live in a county of around 30k people and as of today, there are still only 2 confirmed cases of Covid-19 here. About half the people in the few stores I've visited in the last few weeks were wearing masks (customers and employees). I'm still undecided about if I need to purchase some.

Somewhat like a seatbelt or firearm. If not secured early, by the time you realize that you need it, it will be too late.

I finally went with 30 of these for $20 shipped on AliExpress, from a place promising 4-7 day US shipping. 50 are $32; 100 would be $61. They haven't arrived yet, but USPS tracker indeed shows them en route, for delivery Monday.

Hi everyone,

This isn't actually a bad deal for masks. I've seen fewer masks for more money in a slew of places and it isn't necessarily price gouging either. I'm passing on the deal, though. I'm using DYI masks that, in my opinion, are likely better than or at least as good for the purpose the ones being sold by Wyze.

My primary is a bandana based DYI configuration with a #4 cone coffee filter. It is four layers and snug across my mouth and nose. Two layers of bandana and two layers of coffee filter. It isn't a perfect solution but I'd be inclined to say it's pretty good, especially in comparison to the cheap surgical-style masks that are becoming more readily available now.

Bonus is that bandanas (or socks and t-shirts cut appropriately) are readily available and machine washable for reuse and #4 cone coffee filters are cheap and readily available.

Robert

Only 5 reviews, which is odd. May only be good for protecting others, not yourself - I don’t think the description mentions a metal nose bridge for sealing it properly to your face. Still better than nothing, though.
