Why didn't the government give everyone a mask instead all these layoff's?

    Did you read the page?

    I bet the replacement filters are out of stock, too. I haven't been able to find 3M cartridges in a couple months.

    Because 1) it would have been construed as force by at least some of the population and 2) at least some of the people would take them off and infect others who'd also taken off their masks. When I was young I had a job working in a warehouse and we were supposed to hard hats, goggles, face masks, and steel-toed boots. A few wore the boots but no one wore the helmet, goggles, or masks more than the first hour or two of the first few days. No one. Had OSHA ever dropped by the employer and all the employees would have been fined.

    Why does the government have to give anything?

    I seen a young person in their 20's wearing one of those in a store a couple of weeks ago; I took me by such surprise I laughed out loud. Everybody wearing one of those would look like a terrorist or swat team member.:eek:

    I did read somewhere that masks like this would not stop the pathogen from going thru the filter; but would only stop moister droplets from going thru to other people.

    I had to help take asbestos out of a building years ago; when it was a hazmat directive from the federal govt; and had to wear on of those masks for hrs; cleaning old asbestos insulation out of a boiler room; that was horrible.

    They get sweaty and you feel like you can't get proper air; especially if you are doing a strenuous job. We would go outside every half hour or so; so we could breath good air. It's not something you want to wear all day long.

    Our representatives make laws and when the executive signs them the govt has to follow them.

    Same problem, very hot and difficulty in pulling in air unless an O2 bottle and cooling hookup are connected.

    Because there are not hundreds of millions of them, and hundreds of millions more filters for them, waiting in warehouses and their use would be absurdly impractical if not prohibitively encumbering for most jobs.

    Aside from the impracticality, people all over the world need these items, seeing as this is a global pandemic. Ordering from other countries won't change anything.

    Been told by a big stock broker this could last 6 months or even years before it end's. China lock down the whole country where we can't.

    Stock brokers are not well know for their insight into virology or public health.
