A rubber band and a coffee filter should work if you don't have a dust mask.

If you use a Keurig maybe try a sanitary pad.

That's a nice mask because it has eye protection. But the problem is that you need some way to sterilize yourself if you are near anybody who is infected once you leave that area. You might have virus on your clothes, your hands, the outside of the mask, etc. You go home and get virus all over your car. Then you shed the mask and introduce the virus into your nose by touching it. Bam. You just got infected.

Or virus gets on the bottom of your shoes, then your car, then your hands, then your face...

Protection requires keeping your safe area uncontaminated by using full body plastic suits with a disinfection treatment of your whole suit any time you return to the safe area.

There just are not enough such suits, or even masks. But I worry more that there are not enough ventilators to keep everybody alive if they get seriously ill. Not enough food to keep us fed until there is a vaccine. Remember, there are people all along the food chain that could be infectious.

I suspect a lot of people (including me) are going to die.

Can those cans filter 0.3 micron sized particles or are they filled with activated charcoal for dealing with vapours?

I’ve also stocked up on gallons of strong whiskey. I figger that if I stay saturated it’ll kill them Royal bugs if any get past the castle walls.

Easy fix... I just put some Saran Wrap under the caps. It's a sure-fire way to avoid the virus.

:doh: Never thought of that. Stopping the flow of air is a perfect way to prevent breathing in the virus. Are there any drawbacks to that?

Nope! I am offering free assistance to my Regressive friends for using this "novel" protection strategy. No more disease, EVER!! I'm hoping it will go viral on Twitter.

Anybody have any good contacts at Fox News?

I figger I'll just hole up here in the swamp until this all blows over. I can easily go a month without going to town and with some minimal preparation I could go twice that long.

So far it's just not looking that bad though.
