    can you re-use a n95 mask?

    I have 5 and have used 2 already, Im only using them for weekly/bi weekly shops so suspect 5 will last be a couple of months, however, can I re-use them for other times e.g. going for a walk?

    If coronavirus 'lives' on surfaces for up to a few days I planned to leave it for a few days before reusing.

    do think running poses a greater risk to other pedestrians than cycling, small paths and is a more common exercise along with walking, meaning most paths are actually quite busy

    While out cycling there were two occasions where I was close to someone, once when someone started crossing the road before I had even passed yet and at a red light / busy cross road. Out walking there does seem to be more times where being 2m from someone is nearly impossible and more occasions of people being inconsiderate.

    Went out yesterday - cycled from richmond along south circular in towards central, cut across through putney which was the busiest area and looped back round for a short 10 miles. Hadnt been out in a couple of weeks so just doing a risk assessment. Think main roads are the easiest areas to keep distance from peds or fellow cyclists as it allows you plenty of room to overtake safely.

    Going to try going the other direction, feels weird hunting out the main roads that are usually busy, but are now the quietest, in terms of pedestrians or cyclists.

    My sister has just got back from Aus, was a nightmare with flights cancelling all over the place.

    She ended up on the first ever airbus direct from Aus to London, kinda cool? Now shes driving back to Manchester where she will be working for the NHS once they've clarified if she needs to isolate or if they will be doing tests.

    I live right by Richmond park which is now closed apart from cyclists and pedestrians? Anyone know how they have closed it, hopefully not by shutting the main gates so you have the squeeze through and touch the turnstiles?

    Would like to go for a walk or cycle later, assuming the lockdown will now mean its quieter in there.

    I'm struggling a bit with my mental health, this is really bringing out my anxiety and I just want to 'escape' from london to my parents. But with a co-worker potentially having it and I was in contact with them 10 days ago and I had very mild symptoms I dont want to risk it. I've been strictly inside for last week apart from groceries. Is anyone contemplating seeing other people after a certain amount of time? e.g. 14 days of strict isolation

    I have a feeling I wont take any chances but being trapped in London if a lockdown happens is really anxiety inducing for me

    guy at work reckons he's had it or at least some sort of flu for the last 8 days or so, I was last in the office with him 10 days ago, where he sits next to me...

    makes you wonder as I posted a few days ago about having very mild symptoms

    sweated heavily for a couple of nights, with achey legs, very mild headache and if I take a deep breath I can feel something tickle at the back of my throat but it doesn't quite make me cough

    no real ongoing cough either

    Don't think it's covid unless others have very mild cases too but still putting me off going to stay at my parents..
