Have you ever been around plecto glass? Cleaning it scratches it. It will get touched. It does not hold up.

And I will repeat it. Who on earth wants to sit at a BJ table feeling like you are in county jail? I sure don't.

If the masks work, why do we need the plastic glass?



I suspect you're against wearing masks too.

Unfortunately many do not wear masks properly. They expose their nose. They drop them to drink or smoke.

I'll take masks and plexiglass for 500, Alex.

Your suspicion is correct Alan.

AZ fought for months against masks on here.

Been discussed. You can read about it in the Coronavirus Math thread.

I bought a 10 pack of Hanes face masks at the supermarket. I went shopping one day with that and felt I should stay with the N95 mask. I had a mild sore throat after using the cloth mask and I got worried.
I bought a set of 5 face shields. Coronavirus can attack your eyes.

Are the face shields comfortable to wear?

I saw the self-checkout clerk at WalMart wearing a face shield today.

There's a national coin shortage, so the self checkout machines won't take cash or give out change.

I've read that some local ATM's (not local to me) have been out of cash for over a month.

It became compulsory to wear masks in shops etc in England last week, so people are getting used to it. However nearly all the purchases in supermarkets are by card. One of my "local" pubs has now gone cashless and I've only used cash twice since March (hairdressers and parking meter).

Casinos here are due to open next weekend but I think people are saving, so it will be interesting to hear how they fare.

Shields will disappear when not needed. The need is to alleviate fear and slow the spread, when the need disappears, they're gone. I can maybe see them staying at gas stations.

Many gas stations have something stronger than plexiglass as it is

Use the commonsense for saving lives. Stanford reserachers said that heating or steaming a n95facemask can sterilize covid19. So don't buy and use the cheap facemasks. Reuse your n95facemasks to prevent sucking the covid19 into your lungs.

Until Uncle Sam orders Dupont to produce billions of n95facemasks for all Americans, I've kept doing what I have done since the LockDown: I've steamed, sterilized, and reused the same old n95facemasks. So far so good (fingers crossed and knock on wood). By the way, my own brother didn't care about the n95facemasks. He and his whole family got sickened with covid19, sad, but true.
