Masks are ineffective. They provide some protection against the spray from a cough or sneeze - but much of the air inhaled and exhaled remains unfiltered because most masks do not provide a tight seal around the nose and mouth.

I know that. I have a surgical mask, I am using it when having to shop at clueless places where they are not practicing safe distancing. Every little bit helps.

Yes the mask may not be effective if it is not sealed properly but thats not the only use for the mask. You can have the virus and not feel anything but you can contaminate other people during this four to eight day period. Some test positive but never feel anything. So if everybody has a mask on when outside or around people it could keep the virus from spreading from the folks who don't think they have it but do. You can make a simple mask from a paper towel and thread or rubber bands. Look it up folks its a great big virus. Even a paper towel face mask can keep a sneeze localized. Why the governments tell folks masks are useless I don't know. Masks should be standard fare for all of us outside or inside with groups.

Because there was panic mask buying and the supply was depleted and healthcare workers were having a hard time getting them. I just happened to have one from when I worked. They need them more than I do.

I agree with you, tho, Zed.

If you are looking for hand disinfectant gel the chemo guy in Joco sells his gel remedy by the kg/100p or in a 5 gal bote.
Coming from Ajijic he is located on the left side of the road about 50 yds past the OXXO. Once you come to the first Pemex at the East of Joco in the curve, he is across the carretera.

Buying fresh food and restocking the kitchen/house seems to be the most dangerous part of trying to avoid exposure. Stores are non compliant or closed, people bunched together yakking, clueless employees, confined spaces, outdoor markets and tianguis cancelled, etc.

I have found the answer, for me anyway.
Yesterday I ordered and received 2 boxes of produce from the guys at Muyaru. One of fruits and one of veg. Nice assortment, high quality except for the usual bruised zucchini (Why in the world do Mexicans love this watery tasteless variety of zucchini?) produce for a total of 380mp.
Nice guys trying hard and doing a good job. Find them on FB or maybe a website.

For grocery items, Mi Ranchita Cremeria in Chapala has a great service that seems to be working well for customers, I will try it next week. You go to their parking lot on Lopez Cotilla, around the corner from their store, and text them your list. They will package your food and bring it to you in your car. No extra charge.

Anybody been to SL lately? I wonder how they are handling this, if at all. I suspect not at all.

How about giving the rest of us a way to contact Muyaru? There's nada on Google.
Also, address/directions to Mi Ranchita Cremeria in Chapala. Thanks.

Some of us won't use FB. (Nevermind why.) How about a website or phone number?

Gringal, Mi Ranchita is a small version of SL on the corner of Lopez Cotilla and the street behind the mercado in Chapala. Basically it is just behind the mercado but on the corner. I don't know about access other than FB. On FB they are very active and are posting pics of the store and stock to help with ordering. They specialize in home baked breads and imported cheeses.

Suerte.

Thanks!  What sort of food does Muyaru have?  Just veggies?

Walmart, for all their downsides, is taking the precautions about cleanliness seriously. When my husband was there a day or two ago (very early), the employees were moving goods off shelves and disinfecting them (the shelves, anyway). Superlake is mobbed as usual. We're planning to eat even more of our thick soup, heavy on veggies and various beans. Not as much fun as going out to eat, but it works. Some of us used that method of survival way back when we were "starving students".

I would do that, but my hearing on the phone is kaput. That's one area where aids don't do a proper job. That's why I asked you.

Muyaru lists their small basket as 5 kilo and their large as 10 kilo. Without Facebook to see what they are offering, you will need to contact them

Good. I had to do some editing because some info was coming up twice. Please note that there is an e-mail address which I know you can do. I'm also sure that their "package combos" will change.

And, don't forget, EVERYTHING into the Microdyn even if you have to peel it.

Everything has always had a good soak in the Microdyn at this house. Fruits and veggies are good for you.......unless they aren't sanitized.

Why?  Who packed the stuff?  What about the driver?  IMHO, might as well shop early enough to avoid crowds and hope the check out person has clean hands as he/she touches each item you'll be taking home.
Lady Luck is the one really in charge here, sad to say.
I agree. My doctor insists that things like papaya, oranges, apples, cucumbers etc. must be scrubbed with detergent in water and a brush. Other things soaked in Microdyn. I wonder if frozen dinners from Costco might be safer because of quality control.
