Now Officials are saying to cover your face when you go outside.  Saw this on the news this evening.

They are asking the public to wear mask or cloths around your mouth and nose but not the surgical N95 mask are only for medical and essential personnel.

This was predictable.  Have you ever been in a room where they perform surgury?  Everyone wears protective clothing including a mask to prevent infection.  

I never understood the controversy "except", of course, if one wears a mask "too long" and bacteria can grow in it, moistened by our breath.  

I wear a mask when I go to the grocery store, or other public  place..never for more than an hour, and usually much, much less.  

You can make a homemade mask if you dont have one.

You can likewise make one from cloth layers, or, in a pinch tie a bandana over your face.

I am afraid to wear a mask. It aggravates some of my PTSD.  The last time I wore a mask, I was on my 06 Hog Heritage Soft tail classic heading to Myrtle Beach for Bike Week from Ft Bragg. Johnny law pulled me over asking questions. When all questioning was done, Johnny Law said I had met the description of a shooting. I was like wow, really.  I called the police department. There were no report of any such thing. I just had a bandana around my noses and mouth so that I don't inhale the bugs.

I heard you can make a good mask out of a throw away baby diaper, I guess a new pampers new baby diaper.

NOT SURE HOW BUT IT WOULD MAKE A GOOD ONE.

AllTheWay, YOU BETTER START WEARING A MASK THAT COVERS YOUR NOSE & MOUTH...WITH THIS PANDEMIC GOING ON FULL FORCE  I DOUBT JOHNNY LAW WILL BOTHERING ANY MORE  ALTHOUGH YOUR STORY WAS FUNNY.

I WEAR A N-95 MASK WHEN I GO TO THE GROCERY STORE AND GET GAS ...ALSO USE A PAPER TOWEL TO WIPE OFF THE GAS PUMP HANDLE.

THIS COVID19  DON'T CARE WHO IT KILLS  AND WE ALL CAN'T BE TO CAUTIOUS

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
       
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
       
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
       
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
     
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
     
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”
     
    Note:
