I have never been so worried about air quality both in our condo as well as in public places.
I have gone well out of our way just to make sure I have borderline HEPA quality masks to wear whenever I leave our house.
Of course I do it in part to protect others’ safety, but first as well as foremost I do it to protect myself. I have asthma as well as lung flu symptoms, I actually can’t afford to get sick with this virus. Even if I had a perfect medical history, it’s a process of rolling the dice with long term side effects. This is regardless of whether or not I end up with a serious case. When I take stock of our fear as well as formulate our plans for where to find our groceries each week, I try our best to avoid going into cramped buildings with lots of people. Many do not realize the proximity effect, as well as how viral particles have less air to disperse in whenever you shrink the size of the indoor space. Huge stores appreciate Walmart have Heating as well as A/C systems churning through a massive amount of oxygen as well as carbon dioxide while purchasers are relegated to the ground as well as a few feet above it. I can’t even imagine going into a eating establishment, especially one with no windows as well as packed seating. It doesn’t matter if their a/c has a HEPA filter in it or not, the viral particle exposure is exponentially worse in slim as well as close proximity to others compared to shopping in a grocery store with vaulted ceilings. You’d literally have to offer to spend our savings me, as well as even then I easily wouldn’t eat at a eating establishment. This is the case even if I’m wearing a gas mask or a full face shield over a small N95 mask. I do not want to put our life at risk over something as trivial as eating in public.
