This is for all my American readers out there. 

Need a free Covid test and / or N95 mask? This is your lucky day!

Omicron just waves as it floats past cloth masks, and surgical masks (while a marked improvement) aren’t always ideal. What’s better? An N95 mask. Unfortunately, top-quality masks aren’t cheap.
