Even anti maskers oughta keep these, but they won’t. They’re really nice if you need to do wood work or other stuff involving particulates. It’s why I was fortunate enough to have a stash of n95’s and p100 filters when this all started last year (paint/woodwork).

Seems like this horse left the barn, moved across the country, and changed its name a long time ago. If the government had mobilized to have N95 masks made back when mask mandates began, we’d have had them well ahead of Omicron. Now, though?
