I was wearing it to the bank to make a withdraw.
I guess they made it very easy to rob a bank hey Rob :ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO:
Is it mandatory there now for you guys? I was looking at the corona virus world meter today and wow usa have more then 52k cases today. This is also worrying for us Canadians as well because of our border line, business, friendship. Lots of Canadians have jobs because of the states and vise versa. Hope things go well for you guys and open our border lines again prosper together again.

By the way it is not fun to wear the mask when it is 100 plus out there, my first customer realized it today and he wore but he didn't let me wear it nice of him. My lungs got the capacity to breath comfortably when I put my mask because I have played soccer till age of 35 and still exercising regularly but it is uncomfortable and sweating bullets.

Right now is a point where you could alienate a lot of your customers really easily

Whether you think they care or not.. my thoughts have changed.

We tell the customer masks will be worn during walk through and payment but during the job they need to leave or remain somewhere in the house for away from us.

When the governor of Michigan and all the rest of them who shut down America joined the protests and violated their own social distancing rules the covid 19 ended for me. When you dictate to others how they are to behave but you yourself don't follow your own rules you have zero credibility. I could care less about it. My only care is that someday some guy is going to get in my face for not wearing a mask.

Proper respirators are available now online.
I've been looking. Everyone says not available. Or prioritized for healthcare/government.
Where are you getting yours? Im looking for half mask and filters.

Paint stores still sticking them cuz it's deemed as "necessary" but hardware stores can't get them.
Amazon sells tons of them

We live in Georgia. We wear a mask on every job and wash with soap afterwards. People younger than 50 definitely prefer that you wear a mask, but older than 50 especially if they’re republican say you don’t have to wear it. During the Covid stuff, over 75% of people we’ve cleaned for have been over 50 so they would be susceptible to the virus.

I like the idea might copy it.

Everyone has the protocol that they're comfortable with.
My client base is older so not only do I have to insure that I don't infect them via exposing myself......I have to SHOW them that I'm not exposing myself.

Yes, it's a PITA wearing a P100 , gloves, using disposable runners, on every job and wearing a P100 in public, off duty....but it's been my form since early March.

So far, my clients really appreciate the effort and continue to reward me by their patronage.

You'd be surprised by how slow it is around here for most of my competition and I can't help believing that it's because they've done a poor job at letting prospects know that they are being super careful.

I think it's a wise time to display next level protocol wether you like it or not....

This shit ain't ending any time soon and you'd be wise to heed my advice and hedge yer bets.

Go on Amazon. They're everywhere
Just checked. I’m stocked but there’s a big wave hitting yuma. Plus have a mold job starting Monday. So probably be wise if they shut things down again.
Tyveks were rough to get for a while

Your comments in this thread have changed my mind.

Honestly, I have a medical reason not to wear a mask. My blood oxygen usually hangs around 85-87, with a mask it drops into the 70’s. Even so, I will be wearing a mask on every job from now on.
