Says "highly breathable". To me, that seems like it wouldn't be what you want, too thin. Not sure I'm going to wear a mask. First, don't have one, second, people seem to disagree as to whether it even makes sense.

Those aren't going to be any better than any scarf or bandanna you could use. Those are more of a sun and wind protector. Don't let it give you a sense of security from the virus.

Wendy,

It can’t hurt to wear this if you are so inclined. Personally speaking, I choose to stay home and away from people.and on the rare grocery store trip, I’m still undecided but may go the route of a pretty scarf. Tired of not socializing at all, though and yes, I really said that, loners that we tend to be. The family held a video chat this morning and plans to do another tonight so I guess that’s as good as it gets for now at least.


Respectfully,

pat

I am planning to do a shopping trip on Monday that should be enough till after Easter. I have to make a traditional Easter dinner.
The mask I will be wearing in the super market is a 24" tube that if rolled up to 4" covers my nose and mouth and is very comfortable. It also makes a cute headband to pull back my hair this summer. I bought it in three colors.

Hope you're not planning a family easter dinner gathering. We've canceled all get together dinners till this is all over.

My family lives in New York... I am in the woods living in a cabin across from a pig farm with my husband and dog.
