Though N95 face masks are in hot demand around the world, with the supply chain mostly sourced in China, we have
located numerous sources for both N95 filter types needed by our care providers, and other filters
suitable for consumers while shopping or walking outdoors, such as for

for your DIY face coverings are readily available, as well.
Because of the growing number of asymptomatic and pre-symptomatic infected people
in our communities, the CDC now recommends wearing some type of
cloth face covering
in public settings, especially when it's difficult to maintain safe social distancing, primarily to protect others.
We go a step further and urge all seniors and vulnerable folks to wear N95 masks whenever out in public
during these times. This is to protect yourself and others, as well.
Large Families - Virus Spread During Incubation Period
As you know, many Angelinos, like New Yorkers, have large families, a common practice among many cultures in major cities throughout the U.S..
When a family member is infected, it may take up to 15 days or longer before symptoms are apparent. But during this period, a family that
normally has small or large gatherings, like the family of
Grace Fusco in New Jersey, may spread the disease to possibly all family members, as well as
the socially connected community. This single Fusco family has already lost three members to the invisible threat. For close families, the 15-day
, with no apparent symptoms, may be seen as the most likely period when intra-family spread may occur, unless additional guidance
and protection is implemented. Families need to prepare in advance to protect themselves with face masks and other precautions as soon as any
member presents a fever, cough or other symptoms .
Advice from CDC:
Get Your Household Ready for COVID-19 . This guidance includes isolating one or more sick residents in one room, for example.
Note: It's OK to smile (:O~] while wearing a face mask, using your eyes and cheeks.

Social distance with a smile, mask or no mask. The most important front line of defense against this frightening disease is your own
personal hygiene, social distancing and discipline. Take a few minutes to learn when and how to safely wear a face mask, and the
difference between a surgical mask and an N95 respirator mask, by viewing

The third external front line, the health care institutions, are ready and able to help. Call your doctor, or 911, if
necessary. You have most of the critical controls in your own hands. You need to protect your family from intrafamily
spread with face masks and gloves before getting to this point, and even before testing, as soon as any symptoms are presented.
The Drill: Roommates and housemates or families may want to practice social distancing, isolation and
self-quarantines at home by taking turns with face masks as a drill for a day or two to be prepared for when
someone has a temperature, cough or shortness of breath. Be sure to use

School Reopening will be a happy occasion for most kids, while the school administrators will be making
things safer by reducing the size of the class to possibly no more than 10 to 12 students in any one room. Wouldn't
it be great to make this small group into a social club, party or team? One team may compete with another in spelling
bees or safe sporting activities like racket sports, for example. Get the PTA involved to synchronize families with
kids in different groups, helping to coordinate for safety.
Note: For regular outdoor use or shopping, conserve the N95 filters from China and elsewhere by using only masks for pollution or sports as selected
above . Save the N95 respirators with more protection at times when caring for infected persons or other
dangerous environments. For seniors, we recommend N95 facemasks whenever outdoors.

July 4 in the U.S.A. is also the biggest day for wildfires, with 7, 762 fires ignited on that date over the 21-year
study period, which study is charted here .
Preliminary reports indicate that the year 2019 is no exception.
Wildfires throughout the western USA (and many parts of the globe) are unfortunately wrapped up with a quagmire of
inappropriate safety standards and a lack of safety infrastructure. We can do better, and sadly
California is a leader in the wrong direction. Starting from prescribed burning that adds to global warming, causes
pollution and, based on studies, hardly ever helps to interfere with actual wildfires that occur
(only 1 percent success). Other studies show that about one percent of prescribed burns actually escape control by
accident and cause more uncontrolled losses. Net effect: negligible protection benefit, added greenhouse gases,
increased health hazards of smoke pollution, in addition to the wasted cost of the operation itself.
Wildfires are easy to ignite by a simple match or incendiary device, cigarette, flare, etc., which can also be concealed with a timed
fuse, until the fire becomes large and dangerous. Simple rockets, such as common fireworks sold everywhere, can readily be launched
into dry brush or natural fuels. Remotely controlled drones, which are increasingly more popular, relatively cheap and accessible,
can also drop incendiary objects into more carefully selected targets. One simple match or discarded cigarette can cause millions
of dollars of damage. The warmer winds and thereby more desiccated natural fuels are ready accomplices.
Assets at risk include our precious forests and housing, as well as many observatories, communication towers, radar antenna, wind
turbines, water tanks and military defense assets that are strategically placed on mountains, hills, valleys and plains that
happen to be vulnerable to wildfires. Needless to say, many residents and more firefighters are put at greater risk on the
front lines on the ground and in the air, as well.
Added to the threat of domestic terrorists who may, in some cases, be mentally aberrant, as well as increasing numbers of
who squat in or near the wildlands and who frequently start fires for cooking or to keep warm, there are also
those who are
motivated by groups like al Qaeda to engage in lone wolf attacks, including setting forest fires
, as discussed in an article in
Wildfire Today .
Climate change could take a serious toll on the U.S. economy by expanding by 50 percent the area that wildfires burn —and raising
projected damages by tens of billions of dollars a year by 2050, based on a study published by
NRDC in 2014.
