Can I wear this instead of a mask?


I just want to wear the mask over my mouth. My glasses fog up!
I don't see why not.
The curved feature may help with fogging. If you invest, please report. I pretty much figured in time more unique and useful models would come out. People need solutions. Despite what we see and hear online, most folk really WANT protective gear if its functional.

ETA: I really like that one too.

These are options for younger kids who are exempt from the mask mandate per CDC.

In my black moms of toddlers group, one of the ladies dared to ask "who doesn't wear masks or let their kids wear them/"

She was dragged and ridiculed but then the moms who said their 2 and 3 year olds wore their masks just fine were made to feel (by the daring few) that they were somehow putting their young kid at risk of immediate death by suffocation. So of course, many moms shared that they had these on their older infants who can sit up, or even walk (6-12 months old) or their 2-4 year old kids who refused to wear a mask. No judgement on the refusal part. Cause kids gone be kids. But I fall in the camp of moms who draw a line. some parents will let their smaller kids (2-3) not wear jackets on a freezing cold day bc they didn't feel like fighting. Meanwhile I darn near sat on my 2 year old when she didn't want that jacket. I have left her home with dad as well. I draw the line there. OTOH...my almost 3 year old loves masks, loves her jacket and has no problem with it.

Celebrity Plastic Surgeon Dies After Giving Lip Lift to COVID-Positive Patient​

Renowned Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Payman Simoni has died from COVID-19, which he reportedly caught from a patient while performing a lip enhancement. Now some are asking: Should plastic surgery be allowed in Los Angeles as the city’s cases skyrocket? Inside Edition was with Simoni back in May, for the return of cosmetic surgery after they were initially put on hold at the beginning of the pandemic. At the time, the doctor assured us that every precaution was being taken.

I guess not. You really should be demanding they get a PCR test to confirm no more than 3 days before surgery that they are negative, then a rapid test as well. Then if you catch a COLD from a patient, I'm assuming you were all up in their face and being reckless with your hygiene protocols.

Yep, really. Apparently from the story that aired on TV, the patient actually coughed in his face during the procedure. How rude (and deadly) was that?! Hope her and her duck-shaped lips feel guilty as sin over causing that man's death..

The new strain is killing folks in Houston. :nono:



HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- A Houston woman has died after contracting COVID-19 after the holidays. Her family said they received a call from doctors this week who confirmed she had the second strain of the virus.

Felicia Parker, 40, died on Saturday, according to her family. It started when she began having breathing problems.

"She was admitted to the hospital last Monday. She was gone already by Saturday," said her family member, Romeka James.


Parker's family told ABC13 she had also recently been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes.

"This is serious. This is not just another person. This is someone's mother, someone's sister. We have to be really safe, we have to follow the CDC guidelines. It's not just another number. It's somebody," said James.




Experts said the newly discovered second strain of COVID-19 is not deadlier than the first, but only more contagious.


"The average infection rate went from about 10% to about 15%," said infectious disease specialist Dr. Linda Yancey. "We do know that the new strain is in the Houston area. The Houston Health Department has detected it."

Health officials said the big concern is dealing with this new strain on top of a current surge.

Yancey adds that the current COVID-19 vaccine will protect you against the various strands, and urges the community to get vaccinated.

Someone just mentioned to me yesterday that production has not bounced back from last year and that shortages will resume again soon. I thought that he was crazy but now yall gat me concerned. *puts club pack toilet paper on the list*
I buy 2-3 essential items every shopping trip. Its a nice, slow way to accumulate a stock even though we have shortages. I am good on cleaning wipes. But I'll be picking back up buying one TP and 1 pack of papertowels each trip, and I qill squeeze in a bottle of bleach 2-3 times over the next few weeks. It slowly adds up if you are consistent. I also know when my stores get a truck and when they stock (3-4 PM every afternoon).

The spin is that these counties happen to have large numbers of elderly and poor health care systems. Under different leadership I might buy it but not DeSantis.

This "man" really makes me want to cuss. So these same counties that have been unmasked and not taking this seriously for months get first access to the vaccination program? And this "just so happens" to fall along party lines? :rolleyes:

Dh's main employee just tested positive for covid. He hasn't been feeling well. Four days ago I bought him vitamin C, ACV and honey and told him how much to take. He had already been taking 1000mg vit c daily and a multi.
Well he went to the doctor. The doctor told him to stop taking it because it was too much acid and it is making him feel worse. :(
When the truth is he had covid that was getting worse. The doc wrote him a few prescriptions.

His symptoms were sore throat, achy joints, fingers and feet tingling, loss of appetite , then he got a headache and fever, and is now short of breath when he walks.

I am going to buy him some more supplements and hopefully he takes it.

I told Dh that the outcomes for men coming to the hospital with covid aren't good especially Hispanic men. Men continue to die at much much higher rates than women from covid.

2 days after voting to not require masks, COVID-19 shuts down the Missouri House​

  • UPDATED JAN 15, 2021 | POSTED ON JAN 15, 2021
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (KCTV/KMOV) -- The Missouri House of Representatives has canceled next week's session due to rising COVID-19 cases two days after voting down a measure requiring masks and social distancing.

Missouri House Speaker Rob Vescovo, Missouri House Speaker Pro Tem John Wiemann and other leadership members in the House issued a joint statement on Thursday evening.

"Due to the rising number of COVID-19 cases in the building, we are exercising an abundance of caution to protect members, staff and visitors by canceling session next week," the statement reads. "Our goal is to return to work the following week."


The exact number of lawmakers infected has not been released. There's no word yet if the Missouri Senate will follow.

This shutdown comes just days after the legislature reopened. Many lawmakers had no masks -- including the color guard. The Missouri House voted down a measure requiring masks and social distancing on Tuesday.

My husband's uncle is now on a ventilator and kidney dialysis due to Covid 19. He visited a church where he's a musician so they think that's where he caught the virus. The doctor doesn't think he's going to make it so my mother-in-law has to make the difficult decision of removing him from the machines. He's in his late 50s so he's not old at all. Whatever happens, I just pray that he's not in pain.

I just got a call from my acupuncturist who said over the weekend had symptoms that sounded like covid but she made sure to say she was tested negative. She had a blocked heart valve hence the lowered oxygen levels etc.....

But when she first started talking I was like Jeez Louise!!!

Are you seeing that he said the newest strain has immune escape and is escaping from the pfizer vaccine as well? Almost complete escape meaning it went undetected. :nono:
This is terrible.
If the new strain affects more people(because it is more contagious) than surely it will result in more deaths because more people are infected at a higher rate.
so the talking point that it isnt deadlier is false. There will be more reinfections which will lead to many more deaths than the first strains. The devil is busy. :(


This is not looking good.

not to mention all the deaths, the death toll is no joke, one would think all these people dying would make it real.

This feels like the apocalypse to me.

Doctors are killing patients in multiple hospitals in Texas and there is nothing anyone can do about it because it is blamed on covid. Nurses are saying in one hospital that 90% of intubated patients are dying within hours of being intubated because air is leaking from the ventilator into various parts of the body. It is malpractice and negligence but it will be blamed on Covid!!!!!!!!!!! :nono:


I feel like crying. :cry:

I’m hearing NYPD are giving out COVID vaccines. Are they qualified to do that? It’s crazy.
They have a training program on how to inoculate for this type of thing. They are technically part of the "First responders" class of workers and get certain types of advanced first aid training and keep kits in their car---some kits vary but have been known to have epi pens or adrenaline, lidocane, kits to sew minor sutures, wound care, etc. Think kinda of a military/paramedic hybrid combo. Car accidents, side of the road type emergencies.... We are also trained in the Public Health system too. If deployed, I can inoculate folk if need be.

My town has 1 ICU bed left out of both hospitals. Outside of my town, the closest hospitals are 2+ hours away north, west, south east, and east of here (In the city of J'ville and Gainesville), and only 2 of them have the infrastructure, ICU and staffing (Jax and G'ville---Univ of Fl) to deal with this kind of stuff. Both are college towns so ain't nobody getting transported. My town is at the HIGHEST level of alert right now.

It is apocalyptic. But when we were discussing this in February and March---people called me crazy.

Doctors in the US are at a point where they have to make dire decisions. A nurse on NPR last night who works on the COVID floor says they are short staffed due to nurses just being sick or dying. She says she is the one feeding patients...Imagine feeding a patient who has partial paralysis and can't feed themselves. This is usually a staff member or visiting family member who can help. In the middle of your sick patient's meal, her next door neighbor is coding or an alarm goes off. Then the person before that. Then its hours before anyone can finish feeding the patient. You have to stop feeding, clean yourself before going to the next room and then do it again for the next. Just the time it takes to properly clean yourself, change hazmat/shield/mask is time consuming in itself. What she described bout had me in tears.
Of course our focus is on politics and keeping the country from falling apart right now. Which is why I hope they throw the book at Trump. I lay this at his feet and that of my own governor.

I got a call from work to be prepared to come in for the Covid vaccine. But then they ran out. Hopefully I will get it soon but I swear this is some ruse to make people want it more. Like Canada reportedly ordered more than they needed...
I just got a call from my acupuncturist who said over the weekend had symptoms that sounded like covid but she made sure to say she was tested negative. She had a blocked heart valve hence the lowered oxygen levels etc.....

avoid her like the plague. There are reported false negatives.
