So you've got a month or two to make a killing at the casinos before they go out of business forever.

Anyone have any recommendations for protective face masks better than simple surgical masks? I've read about N95 masks but am concerned about them not being reusable.
So many better men, a few of them friends, are dead. And a thousand thousand slimy things live on, and so do I.

The most effective protective defense against The Coronavirus appears to be the Gas Masks.

I use a steamer/pressure cooker to kill germs on my "reuseable" n95facemasks. I set the auto-steamer for 1 minute. So far so good. My brother didn't care about the covid19 stuff. His whole family got sickened with covid19. Go figure.

Here are photos of my steamer/pressure cooker

I bought the last dozen N95 masks at Lowes back in mid-February. They haven't restocked since. I'm still using my first one. I keep it in a ziplock bag in the car and whip it out if I stop somewhere like shopping or at a gas station, where masks are required by the Governor. I just keep it on for a couple hours when I'm out in the stores. With the hot weather, it's getting uncomfortable. They also fog up my glasses when I change from indoors to outdoors or vice versa.

I think the surgical masks are not enough, but might suffice where there's no one around. The surgical masks are to protect others from you. The N95 masks are to protect you from others as well as protect others from you. You've got this virus hanging out in the air for hours and an N95 mask is the minimum mask that approaches blocking that.
I'm not sure using a public restroom is advisable anymore either. Will have to wear a mask there too.

Doctors and nurses are supposed to dispose of their masks after each patient, but because of the severe lack of PPE by the federal government, they are being forced to keep using them long past sanitary conditions, like one mask for a 40 hour work week. Navarro said he ordered 20 million N95 masks, so that is near 100% short of the billions of N95 masks needed. #StayHome

Reopening the Casinos was a big step backwards IMHO. Casino industry should have stayed shutdown until further notice when the contagion seem to be fully under control (probably at least an year after the initial outbreak).


In Vegas...just to play it safe, masks should have been mandatory from the start. Governor made a big stink about fearing violence (someone was shot in Michigan?)....so he passed on making it mandatory.

Now, itís mandatory and probably too little too late.

At worst....he could have made it mandatory for 2 months and see where the numbers go. Then re-evaluate.

He made a mistake, IMO.

Yes, a security guard in Michigan was MURDERED over telling them they had to have a mask on. Hope those evil people get Covid-19 and die in prison.

Life is full of coincidences $:o)

Take care out there. Spare a thought for the newly poor who were happy in their world just a few days ago, but whose whole way of life just collapsed..
