I'm a retired FF/EMT, and in a fairly high risk group for mortality due to the "Chinese Wuhan virus". My supply of face masks is limited to some hardware dust masks I bought years ago for weed wacking. My "substance isolation" gloves are Harbor Freight utility vinyl gloves that I mostly use for painting and cleaning the grill. However, I do wear both mask and gloves for grocery shopping. Part of the reason is that years of experience makes me NEVER touch my face, clothes, phone, car door, etc., with those gloves. And the mask at least protects against droplets, and covers my own sneeze or cough.
