Good evening!

So I walk A LOT to and from work. Was thinking of getting a mask to have on standby in case we have any more bad smoke days. Any recommendations, or any evidence that they actually do anything? Was thinking it might double up against infection in case this Corona thing hits the fan too....again no idea if they actually do anything.

Any knowledge would be awesome!

It'll take a week or so to get here but when we couldn't get P2 masks here we ordered these. They're quite cheery and upbeat plus they come in a range of sizes , depending on your face shape https://www.vogmask....collections/all
They're good for pollution, won't do for plague though - the only thing that will really stop viruses are n95 respirators which need to be professionally fitted

Not having a go as I understand the reasoning, but god I did not find those masks cheery and upbeat. I find it (the whole concept) overwhelmingly depressing.

I am with PP. If I HAVE to wear a mask.... I would rather not and bear the consequences.

Really? Death IS the consequence.
If not immediately then certainly sooner than you would expect

I get what a PP means about the whole idea of needing a mask being pretty depressing, but these are quite nice, and I’d feel a bit more relaxed wearing one like this instead of one that looks very clinical?

These say N95, are they better? If the ones Grudiae linked are just as good I’d rather get one of those.

Going to start being a lot more vigilant with hand sanitizer after using public transport (I should be anyway!)
