the 3M N95 masks are out of stock EVERYWHERE. I've been looking for them for several weeks now because my husband is particularly vulnerable. I always buy some in the spring so he can help with yard work (it can be extremely dusty when we've not had rain here in northern CA), but he will be vulnerable to the virus as well. So far, every place I've checked, both local stores and online, and including 3M's "where to buy" list, are all out of stock. I'm seeing this message:

"DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK, THIS PRODUCT IS NOT AVAILABLE FOR 6-8 WEEKS. WE WILL UPDATE AVAILABILITY AS MORE INFORMATION BECOMES AVAILABLE."

So, if people feel they need them, can't buy them, and don't trust that they will be able to buy them in time, they will steal them. People are starting to panic. We will see more of this. We are ill-prepared thanks to the idiot "in charge."
