    I thought about them when I seen them disappearing early on from the hardware and paint supply vendors. Guys just trying to do their job while a bunch of hoarders are just sitting on the supply that was needed to do it. :50cal:

    I bought 3M respirators on eBay. The FDA has given emergency approval for any N95 or higher mask right now. The question will be whether or not I can use the mask when the emergency goes away. I hope 3M gets the FDA to certify them.

    There are only a few FDA & NIOSH approved N95 masks. None are reusable.

    Get yourself one of those homemade peroxide vapor cabinets that sterilize the used stuff.

    Probably not meant for surgical procedures where fluids or particulate are flying around though.

    Yep. The CDC says not to extend the life of PPE that was used in an aerosol generating procedure.

    The CDC guidelines for extending the life of PPE are all for emergency situations. I've recommended against those measures to my colleagues that aren't in a hospital or other emergency situation. The boards here in TX have said if you don't have PPE don't reopen. I don't think the boards will be happy if an outbreak happens in an office that was extending the life of PPE.

    That's the Gov back door way of shutting you down. I don't need or use any of that chit. Wandered thru WM yesterday. Just for S&G looked the hand sanitizer. The little bitty bottles. Sat they were 99 cents, Tues $2.39 now who's gouging?

    Walmarts pricing is, well confusing at best. They definitely removed all sale pricing and market adjustments and while they used to sell a crap ton of items at a loss to generate traffic and volume they aren't doing that anymore.

    Kroger is beating them on basket price mostly now anyways. They always killed them on quality and experience and have consistently had a lot better supply chain the last couple months.

    As far as sanatizer, I bought 2 huge bottles in march and still only used half of one. We all have key chain bottles we refill from the big one which sits at the front door.

    Anyone coming in the house is required to use a sanatizer wipe on their phones and ear buds and sanatize their hands. Works for us and t hff ey all work retail so they see thousands of people a day between them. I still sanatize cars and door knobs and light switches every day.

    No one has gotten anything but dry hands. YMMV.
