Please give me your best ideas and products for staying safe

I'm hoping some of you have some great ideas or have found some great products that are helping you avoid infection.

I saw a cashier wearing one of these face shields today and I’m not sure they are that protective. They certainly look more comfortable that a mask.

What great ideas do you have for going out into today's world?

From my medscape newsletter there is some research the using Listerine mouth wash for 30 seconds once or twice a day will kill the virus that is present in the mouth. Certainly wouldn’t hurt .

Basic cold prevention

Wash hands before eating

Don't touch your face or others!

Sneeze into tissue \ elbow then wash hands

Give body good defense as in good food.

Plenty rest

Just my opinion. Worth the cost to obtain it...

Wash hands frequently, avoid some of the lower gathering places, and keep my immune system tweaked to its highest possible level. Only feed it what it thrives on. No garbage at all.

This virus can't crawl, jump, or burrow into your skin. It can only get in by reaching a mucous membrane such as mouth, nose, a cut in your skin, or your eyes. Don't take your eyes for granted. Pick up a cheap pair of clear contractors glasses at the big orange store. Their less than 10 bucks and good protection. Wear a mask, and also social distance. Wash your hands and above all don't touch your face. I know it's hard. I feel the urge to touch mine all the time. Avoid people who get complacent. Complacency will get you. On the news they said a large problem is that relative who just had to stop by and say hello. Don't let them. Thanksgiving and Christmas is a write off this year. When you have your holidays next year giving it up this year won't look so bad, and we'll all be vaccinated by then but we just need to tough it out this year. Many people have endured far worse with wars and so much else. It's not that much of a sacrifice in the big picture of things.

I doubt that is effective at all. There's an open mouthpiece and too many places for the aerosols to escape.

Even the full face shields are not effective unless you wear a mask underneath it.

Here are some masks if looking for something to exercise in:

1, Wear a real respirator mask rated N95 or above, when in public, not some random fashion statement cloth mask, you can still find them on ebay, etc. though they cost $15 or so, instead of $3 like they did a year ago. I just bought one a couple of days ago, it was a 3M R95 mask which is a small step up from N95.


2, Social distance, don't stand 3 ft from someone to talk to them, when you can stand 7-9 ft way. This is the one I have to keep lecturing my elderly mother about, don't open the door and chat with someone for 5-10 minutes, she just can't seem to grasp that social distancing is not at arms length.


3, Wear some type of eye protection, sun glasses, safety glasses, etc. anything that will prevent a direct sneeze or cough to hit you in the eyes.


4, Don't touch stuff if you can avoid it, when grocery shopping grab and go, don't check the expiration dates on every jug of milk. After being out in public touching stuff use hand sanitizer / wash hands. By all indications touch is a secondary transmission method, but still why risk it.

The thread is now closed. Thank you to those who stayed on topic.
