A Video Primer on Hygiene in Current Year



Besides the hand-washing, one should familiarize oneself with PPE, its proper use of protective equipment and  ideas for extemporization in a pinch. . 





Below is the preferred option. Full protection with a positive pressure sealed outfit with either a self contained or sealed hose feeding through HEPA filters. Gifts are for visual appreciation only and don't transfer germs between individuals.

If one does not have the resources for the full sealed full protection  then an N-95 rated mask is the only way to filter viral particles out of the air with a reasonable expectation of safety.

N-95 masks are marked as such. Regular sneeze-guard masks like we see below are...are....

What was I talking about?
Something about lungs.
Protecting..the lungs...?
Oh right. Masks. Regular medical masks will provide only the most minimal protection against brief, limited exposures and may lead to a dangerous sense of security. 


The eyes need to be covered as well.

Actually, eyes should be covered with, full goggles or a diving mask. Glasses do nothing against viruses. 

Indeed. One should not fixate upon masks as other types of PPE are also important.

Oh.

For example: scarves are a good idea.

Use whatever you have and stay indoors alone as much as possible. However, extemporization will only go so far.

1 The big doctor's office I go to always has standard-grade masks out in cold/flu season, and makes it clear that the purpose is to keep your germs in, not keep anything out.
