Re: Community Face Masks [reusable cloth masks] - Where to buy?

So it becomes clear what was meant by community masks, finally.

Bear in mind that these are not viewed as acceptable any place that's actually checking. Like airports, for example. Saw someone being turned away at security wearing an unmarked cloth mask - changed to a blue surgical mask and was let through, meanwhile I was wearing a workshop dust mask, with various markings on the outside, which didn't raise an eyebrow.

Yep. Totally ok on my daily train commutes, for about 1/2 the passangers (I bet vaxed).

Iíve worn cloth masks everywhere - including planes! The only place Iíve been asked to change was the vaccination centre.

Wear them everywhere, just not on a plane to Germany (or in Germany).

Some cloth masks are certified, so I'm guessing the airport security was triggered by the obviously non-professional manufacture.

During the ski season we were using snood-like masks, which had a bendy metal nosepieces and were marked with the required certification. Most people out on the slopes were just wearing ordinary ski masks, so social distancing was the most important tool in staying safe, which is why I got annoyed one time when two guys insisted on getting on the same 4-man chair as me and my wife. Only once, and for no reason, i.e. no queue or anything, just seemed like they were trying to make a point or something.
