I was wearing the surgical blue mask, now I am wearing a KN95 under a blue surgical mask.

Morning. The plain blue and white surgical disposable ones. Not had any problems with them. Would say 80% of Aussies would be using them when required from what I have seen.

When putting them in the rubbish bin I also cut the elastic ties. People are careless and some wildlife are now getting caught up in them, especially in the sea.

Morning, that’s a good idea to do that for the wildlife.

I hope they win. They are not my team, but I like the quarterback.

I wear the cheap blue one.

I'm wondering if anyone uses them more than once.

Had Covid back around Halloween, got my first dose of the Moderna vaccine last Monday

My husband, daughter and I have not received the vaccine yet, I am thinking sometime in the summer. So until then, my family and I have to be careful.

Morning. Yes I do all the time. Here we only have to wear them in supermarkets and public transport.

If it is starting to look worn, then I replace it.. certainly not replacing it every 3 hours like they said to when we had to wear them all the time. I live in a country town if I lived in the city I would change it every day.

Stay safe..

Spent 11 years as a paramedic. Went through lots of masks. Bought a hundred pack of N-95 months ago. and since I mostly shelter in place, haven't used many yet.

Fauci advises to double mask so I wear a KC Chiefs mask over a N-95.

While at work, I wear the standard surgical grade mask (required), when on my own time, I wear a Denver Broncos mask under a surgical grade mask.

I know what you are thinking, I used to wear the Broncos mask on top, but if you'd seen any of their games over the past few years, you'd understand why it is now hidden underneath.

Lived in Denver during the Elway days. Mahomes reminds me of him.

Unfortunately these are the NEW Elway days.  He can't hire a good QB if his life depended on it.  Other than Manning, he has failed every single time.  Seems to fail hiring head coaches too.

I use the blue surgical masks, dispose of them after 1-3 uses depending on what I am doing. For example, dispose after 1 use when volunteering at animal shelter several hours, if going to store will use a couple of times.

At work, the KN95.

Out in public, a surgical mask.

I've had both doses of the Pfizer vaccine, so I'm as immune as the vaccine can make me.

I wear Hanes cloth masks because that's what is available locally.

The disposable surgical masks. They were the most convenient and comfortable when I was trying different ones out.

When the pandemic started I had 2 almost full boxes of n95 masks.  I tried to donate them but they couldn't take opened boxes.  I'm glad I couldn't donate them now because I work in construction and use them to protect me from dust, asbestos, etc.  A year later, I'm almost out and haven't been able to get more.

I'm wearing the cloth ones. I have piles of the blue paper ones, and also some white N95s, but the cloth ones are a lot more comfortable.

Camoflage pattern outer fabric with an additional inner fabic layer, it's quite comfortable although it causes my glasses to fog up something fierce

I wear a cloth neck gaiter type with a American flag design. The gaiter is more comfortable to me. Regular face masks constantly make my glasses fog up on me.

Same here, it is easier to use, you can flip it up over your nose as you enter a building and drop it back down once in the clear outside without the trying to fish the straps around your ears.

My ears have actually gotten stronger over the months and now hold the straps.

I didn't know if I wanted to wear this mask...

Or this one...

But my doctor friend gave us a supply of the blue surgical masks, so I settled for them.

That is the kind I wear. Only I bought mine. They are were recommended by my Doctor, and are disposable and cover well. But, the one drawback is they make my glasses fog up when I wear them.

However, I don't leave home very often, and am not out for long when I do leave home. So they serve the purpose they are meant for. And I have a box of masks in my car in case I forget to grab one when I leave home, and in case the one I'm wearing gets a broken ear strap or becomes worn.

They keep your face warm in the winter, that is one advantage for us all.

After seeing so many people out with masks, I wonder how long it will be before the ladies will start wearing masks a little high or "accidentally" ripped exposing their chin to attract men jrSmiley_25_smiley_image.gif .

I have a box of surgical and I have various cloth ones.  I wear the surgical.  I have a small face and many of the cloth ones don't fit properly.

My wife painted this early in the pandemic and put it on the door leading into the garage so I don't forget to wear a mask if I have to go out.   I have only been the post office occasionally and a few doctor's appointments.  It's supposed to be me, but I'm a bit grayer than that.  She made the cover and put it over an N95 mask.   We got our first vaccination shots Wednesday afternoon.
