Amtrak COVID Masks @ the Oscars?
Author: RRBaron

I went down to LA Union Station today to check out what little the public can see of the empty building being  preped for the Oscars three weeks from now. I trust METRO got a lot of Big Ones for incommoding all its citizen-passengers who actually own the station. What I found interesting was that all the Amtrak station staff were sporting "AMTRAK-branded COVID masks. If anyone can suggest a source for this retired Amtraker please PM me. They would make unique artifacts of an historic, albeit very sad, era and worthy of preserving in the Los Angeles Union Station Historical Society collection. Check out their website at: www.launionstationhs.org. Thanks in advance!

Glad it is double lined, but there is no HEPA filter. Furthermore as summer approaches, 90% polyester outer lining, 70% polyester inner linings, forget it. I thought high polyester content went out in the 1970's with leisure suits.

Everything else Amtrak stinks these days, why should these be any different?  And, what do we want to bet they are made in the country that gave us the virus in the first place?

8.00 for one And with free disclaimer they may not work. So someone buys one and uses the whole trip, I feel a lot safer. For 5 I can get 40 Kn 95, swap them out and have a bunch left over.

Of course we would. Think of all the lost revenue cash strapped Amtrak desperately needs!

 Not to worry, I always use an N95 under my "public mask". Fortunately, as an artist, I had a stock of real N95s on hand when the virus hit the fan.
