agree Sonya-picking up up our gear from fire stations etc at designated times/days would have been better---they should have prepared for this kind of outbreak long ago. Without bringing politics into this(Ha) I do think Trump lost my vote over his inept ability to take charge correctly of this disaster. Anyway, yeah the gloves and masks will start being a thing of the future if this thing doesn't control itself.

Fortunately, Oregon has a very low infected rate right now.

A little over 800 while WA State has over 6,000 and CA has almost 11,000.

Diluted povidone iodine mouthwash and nasal spray shortly before/after exposure may have some protective benefits, https://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers....act_id=3563092

When I venture out, it will be with N95 mask and goggles .. IF I can find the goggles! I used to have a pair, but can't find them.

If I pitched them, I'll be kicking myself all the way to the store.

It occurs to me, I should keep bins with risk-specific equipment (one for earthquake-only, one for wildfire-only, one for pandemic-only, etc) so I'll know where they are without having to keep them mingled in with the rest of the prep-stuff. Then I'd be able to find my goggles, or know for sure that I had none.

After the merge, the composite has a new primary purpose.

Default Building an EDC/bag for worker in grocery store

I work in a local grocery store. We are open and I have to report to work because we are deemed an essential business. (Never thought when I applied for this job that I would be such a vital part of society). Anyways, I work in the produce department and I am in the thick of people all day. I do try to minimize my time out on the floor at all possible and when I am out on the floor I always keep my cart and various boxes around me to creat a perimeter of sorts so customers will keep their distance (people do not or refuse to comply with social distancing mandates put in place Iíve noticed). Everyday, even before the virus, I noticed how people react and their mannerisms when being out in public. Honestly most people in society are just flat disgusting lol. Licking their fingers for example before opening a bag or sampling grapes before buying. Just plain nastiest. But what is really scary isnít Iím still noticing people doing these practices while this virus is ramping up. Very concerning to say the least. For me I have never been so terrified to go to work before in my life.

Anyways as I mentioned before I do take precautions daily. I have always double gloved even before the virus (see comment above about peopleís manners and you will know why). I also am starting to wear a face mask to work. I am always washing my hands with the proper 20 second rule, if not longer, when I return from off the floor or changing gloves. I am trying to put a kit together though that I can take to work with me as an EDC virus kit/emergency virus bag. I know about the essentials; mask, gloves, hand sanitizer. But what else would you guys reecommend I take to work with me in this kit while I work in a grocery store?

Default Protective gear to go out ***MERGED HERE***

The question is what do you use to protect yourself when you go out.

The debate of if you should go out has been covered multiple times in other threads, please take it there.

Thank you

Thank you for working. Yes, you are essential.
You should have a bar of soap, goggles unvented and at least an N95 mask and gloves. Wash your hands after shift. When you get home, clothes in washing machine, and take a shower. Shoes off at the door. Pretend it is everywhere and act accordingly. Again, thank you.

Take multi-masks to change into, keep a biohazard plastic bag to put worn gloves and mask into with a tie off, I would also keep some form of sanitizer cleaner next to me....in case someone coughing comes into area to disinfect. I wear my hair in a manner that it is off my face. I would also change my clothes before getting into the car to go home which also goes into your biohazard bag to be decon....if possible and wash up. Make sure you are following the correct procedure to take off mask and glove without getting the virus on you. I also take paper towels with me in my kit, never know when you may need them.

Head to your local motorcycle store. They should have lots of goggles.



Ski goggles too.

The bio bag would be a great addition. Will probably just use a trash bag to put my clothes in. The mask I have is an n95 but I also bought a few of those fabric washable ones so I can easily change them if needed. Thanks for the advice!

Thanks for the input! Will be adding a bottle of soap to my bag for sure! I have been doing a complete decontamination of my clothes and myself when I get home everyday. Wonít even let my gf or dogs touch me when I get in the door until I am clean and everything is cleaned and bagged.

I wear a mask over an n95, gloves x 2, faceshield and gown...at work.

If I go out I wear regular clothes.

Gloves in public are silly, unless you have 10+ pairs on and take one layer off every time you touch something, you are accumulating pathogens on the gloves the exact same way your hands would. If that gloved hand touches something- like your phone, your groceries, your face, etc, then wearing gloves are no better than just washing your hands. The flimsy nitrile gloves are not meant to be worn more than a few minutes for things like exams and procedures.

An n95 is probably unnecessary in public, especially outside or in big ventilated grocery stores. In more confined areas (or patient exam rooms) around people coughing/sneezing without masks on is when they are a major benefit.

PPE misuse is pretty ridiculous right now. Saw a lady yesterday driving alone with a mask on.

Yup, I saw a couple of women driving with their masks on the other day.

Mind boggling.

Haha, it appears that my thread (Security loadout when going out) got merged into this one. While some folks say that there's no need to go out, the reality is that people still have a need to get prescriptions, baby formula, and top off their food preps. In addition to donning nitrile gloves, long sleeve shirt, long pants, & steel toe boots, for security I carry:

CCW 9mm
Gerber Paraframe folding knife
Medkit, mask, and EDC in backpack in car

If things get progressively worse, from a security standpoint, I may step up the pistol to the CZ along with a few magazines. Heck, if they get REALLY bad, I may start throwing on a level III vest. Things haven't been too crazy here in MS thus far, so hopefully the 'curve get's flattened' before they do.
