Other than masks, I don’t need anything. I
You have been out more than I have. Why were you at an auto repair when you don’t have a car?
That is a good shopping plan, too. I need to call Walgreens and see if they have masks before I go over.
I don’t need that many.
For those with latex allergies, nitrile based elastic makes a great substitute. The synthetic rubber is about 5x to 10x the cost per unit weight of ordinary latex rubber, but it lacks the complex protein molecules that trigger severe allergies.
My friend with the severe fibromyalgia has a truly ghastly bad latex allergy. If she touches something that has even been in contact with a rubber band - e.g. mail that was bundled with a rubber band, even if someone else removes it before bringing it indoors - if she touches the spot the rubber had come in contact with on the envelope, it raises blisters like a 2nd degree burn within 30 seconds or less. That's just from a brief touch.
Touching a rubber band will do the kind of damage like touching a red-hot piece of steel.
Then she has to gobble Benadryl like one would eat M&Ms and take a couple of preventative puffs of a strong steroidal inhaler in case anaphylaxis decides to set in.
