This all started for me when Dr. Mark Shapiro asked if I had any N95 masks left over from the recent fires. His colleagues around the country and specifically in a New York hospital expressed concern that they were going to hit a shortage within days.

Individual Safety. Leaving one’s residence during the COVID-19 pandemic increases an individual’s risk of infection, including the ancillary risk of infection posed to others who live in the same household or living unit. Infection by COVID-19 can lead to serious illness and death. Public Health officials advise that everyone should maintain at least a six foot social distancing from individuals who are not part of the same household or living unit; frequently wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or use hand sanitizer that is recognized by the CDC as effective in combating COVID-19; cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or fabric or, if not possible, into the sleeve or elbow (but not into hands); and avoid all social interaction outside the household when sick with a fever or cough.
