Kids need reusable valved mask and eyewear for school. One building holds 100s. Children tend to be unhygienic when they're not taught better. They wipe their nose with hand, sneeze without covering, etc. That's why I'm dreading reopening of schools.

My plan is to keep these are to keep in the car for emergencies. Use once and throw out.

I'll worry about school if and when they go back in Sept. A lot can happen and change between now and then.

Yeah, like a resurgence. Ever since temps warmed up New Yorkers threw out interest in social distancing.

We'll see the impact of being careless in a few weeks. I'm disgusted by the lack of worn face coverings. Wearing it under your chin ain't cool!

Remote learning is crap. On zoom you can hear other students and their background. Not only that, zoom has privacy concerns. There's also the mental impact of them being caged inside for an extended period, lack of sunlight, no sports, etc.

The risk of reopening must be weighed against distance learning. I think they can allow a fraction of students into schools by September. Allow 50% capacity for half of school day, then rotate. Only hold core classes no electives or lunch. Face coverings for all staff, plus spaced desks. UV cleaning after class ends.

I bought these last time. They are not only small at 3 5/8" x 5 3/4", they don't have middle layer and failed on static test. A normal medical disposable mask has the size 4"x7" and uses meltblown fabric as its middle-layer. Meltblown fabric helps trapping virus missed by the mask's outer layer on its static charged surface.

To run static test, just cut some bath tissue to tiny pieces. Lay the mask on them with the outer layer lightly touching the tiny tissue pieces and then lift the mask. If a mask has meltblown fabric as its middle layer, lots of tiny tissue pieces will attach to it.

If you buy something else at walgreens.com for store pick-up, you usually get a 25% off regular price coupon in your store pick-up email that you can use at the store during your pick-up trip only. You are better off to use this 25% off coupon on a box of masks sold at Walgreens store. I bought a box of 20 during my pick-up trip. Regular price $12.99 and I paid $9.74 with the coupon. They are regular-sized 3-layer masks and passed static test for me. Someone also said Walgreens store has a box of 50 for regular price $29.99.

Can confirm, bought these walgreens masks last time, they fail the static test.

Valved masks are not to be used for infection control. Exhalation through the valves are unfiltered, so it provides the wearer with some protection but does not stop any spread if the wearer is already infected. Actually, it's been shown that droplets actually shoot further out of the valves than by wearing no mask at all.

Source: I work in healthcare and we had an in-service about not wearing the masks with valves.

These masks cover your nose and your mouth--they're just not quite as wide as regular masks (not as wide by an inch so 1/2 inch on either side of your face). I had never heard of the static test before so I tried it and mine didn't fail the static test. I cut one open and it looked to me like there was a middle layer. More important, these held water and I couldn't blow out a flame while wearing one so to me, they seem adequate for what they are meant to do--potentially protect other people from me if I am walking around without realizing I have COVID.

However, Walgreens is now carrying full size masks--in store and online. So you have other options there if you don't want these--the full size are a little more expensive but available in store and on line.
