How will you determine a mask is needed until it’s too late? Just wear a mask.


It's good to wear a mask if you will be less than 6' from people in crowded spaces. Flea Markets, concerts, parades, etc.

Right now my common sense is telling me to wear a mask and gloves in the supermarket.

Honest question, what purpose is there to wear gloves?

The virus molecules linger for days on some surfaces, such as metal. You can touch a can with your fingers on a shelf that someone else coughed upon two days ago, and contract the virus.

You do NOT have to put that hand near your face. The virus does infect a person through the skin, but of course the likelihood of the virus successfully infecting you is greater if the virus enters your respiratory system.

I use gloves especially when getting produce, because I SEE other people without any protective measures touching the items. Checking tomatoes, placing fruits near their nose where their unfiltered breath is exhaled onto the fruit, etc.

The chance of infection, minor, but real.

Most RV folks have disposable gloves for sewer dumping. If they are good enough to prevent a much higher risk of infection from raw sewage, they are good enough for me at the grocery store.

I'm not going to full N95 level protection levels, just a degree of additional caution.

See above, plus I have no idea who handled the food before me, same for door handles (especially), grocery cart handles, and any other **** thing other people touch.

I prefer the disposable gloves to constant hand washing.

Have you not been watching the fake news?

I go to the store NO gloves. I keep my CC in a shirt pocket with nothing else. Once done shopping I touch the bottom of my door handle and truck unlocks. I open back door and place goods inside. Close door and open drivers door and pump hand sanitizer into my hands BEFORE touching anything else.

Once home I bring everything inside to one counter. I then remove all my clothes and place in washing machine. I also place cc with items to be cleaned and use sanitizer on it. I put produce away and frozen goods. I then take wipes to everything else setting them in a clean area one at a time. Now I clean surface those goods were on and thoroughly clean my hands. Now I put away those items. When removing produce I place in sink and thoroughly wash and clean hands and surfaces again.

I also wipe my door handles on truck and RV that I touched so when all done I say "BACK TO SAFE ZONE AGAIN"

So gloves do no good IMHO. Leaving gloves on you are contaminating everything you touch inside the vehicle along with everything you touch, FALSE sense of security!!!
