How are things where YOU are? (in relation to the Corona Virus)

A local alterations shop is making masks and offering them free to over 65's or selling then to others. We stopped in and bought some. They are very good, made of tightly woven cotton and lined (which apparently is effective against 70-80% of germs) and are washable. They are good enough to wear while doing the shopping. There has been quite a lot of discussion about places like Singapore, Hong Kong, and Taiwan, where mask-wearing is quite common, and how the number of cases in those places it lower than expected. I'm beginning to doubt the "masks aren't effective" edict, but wouldn't want to take hospital-grade masks away from those people who really need them. So if home-made masks are 70-80% effective then why not use them in places like supermarkets where many people seem to be either ignoring social distancing or having difficultly maintaining it.

On the Princess section of the forum, there was a photo of a mask made by one of the regular members. She used one of the blue Princess tote bags. Strong fabric and washable.

 

Someone else made the comment that she cruises so often she could make them for everyone in her state.🙂

Was amazed at local shops last week when, at both of the big supermarkets, they had two checkouts side by side open while all the remainder were not being used. If a shopper was going through each checkout at the same time there was no way they could be the required distance apart. Will be interesting this week to see if they have realised their mistake.
