That's literally what I did yesterday at the grocery store. I hated it. It kept constantly falling and it became incredibly humid because the heat was turned up in the grocery store and as a result it did not prevent me from touching my face a million times to keep it from sliding off. It felt like it would've been safer for myself to not wear one.

I do not recommend it. If anyone can find something with elastic straps do it and don't look back.


Seriously, go to Etsy.

Tried the no sew and either the fabric I had was too small or my face too big.

Need to get some essentials at the grocery store today, so trying to figure out something for use today.

Lots of family members who would have been the first ones to say "it's just the flu" if Fox News told them to say it a few months ago are now wearing cloth masks anytime they go out. While the spring breakers and general denialists get the headlines, I think most people are willing to do anything that means the whole thing goes away even a little bit faster.

I think we're going to start seeing lockdowns slowly rolled back sooner rather than later. Late April or early May. I think we're going to see something like this:

1) Widespread mask-wearing
2) Most things "open" but with reduced capacity and an emphasis on limited interactions when possible (i.e. stores encouraging curbside pickup). No sporting events, concerts, conventions for a long time, though.
3) Aggressive sterilization of high-risk areas. Public transportation, areas with high foot traffic, buildings with lots of people coming in and out. We will need literally round-the-clock squads wiping down surfaces.

That's *probably* going to be fine? I'd be surprised if we're still seeing community spread in significant numbers at this point.



Yeah. I can see returning to some semblance of normal at a local level (the stuff you allude to), but it's becoming harder and harder for me to see any professional sports being played with crowds. I just don't see how all the fires can be put out reliably at once in all of the areas that it would require.

Maybe in 2 months California and NY have things relatively under control...maybe Chicago/IL acted quickly enough that they don't get hit too terribly, whatever...but then what about the states who have either done little or waited too long...what about Atlanta or whatever?

In the description it tells you to cut up fabric to a 22 inch square. Old t shirt probably works fine.

What’s the recommendation for material for these masks?


Cotton. Using things like bandannas and t-shirts are fine if someone can't buy masks (though just take a look at somewhere like Etsy; you'll find scores of sellers selling re-usable, washable cotton masks).

You can use poly blends, too. Some of mine are those, and they technical filter better, but be aware that those are really more for using to go out and run errands and then into the wash when getting home since they accumulate more moisture. Cotton breathes better, so that's not as much of an issue.


So people should be able to make masks from t-shirts or other clothes that can be cut up and repurposed, assuming they have a sewing machine or a little bit of sewing ability.


Pro-tip from my better half: make an cotton envelope from densely woven material (like kitchen towels) and put a flter inside cut out of a vacuum cleaner bag.

It's lowered projections all over the nation.

This coming week *should* be the worst of it, as the cases who were infected 3-4 weeks ago hit the death totals. Another week to be sure, and then we can start having real conversations about slowly turning down the dial in most places.

i thought it was strange that birx was emphasizing to stay home extra hard (that's fine and it's what we should be doing) for the next couple of weeks because this next week or two is supposed to be so bad. like, isn't whatever happens this week what was locked in from behavior a few weeks ago?

i mean, yeah, definitely stay home everyone, but i was confused by how that was framed.

not quite, from what I understand. Belgians are nearly perfectly formed while Brussels are rounder. I think the dough is different too.

I think that might have been more messaging than based on anything scientific. People are starting to get restless, temperatures are starting to warm up, etc....I think the general consensus is that most places have done very well in terms of staying home, just need to stick with it for a couple more weeks and hopefully then we'll see a real drop off.
