Re: any news for the Clapper? Opinions about buying duckbill masks?

I also had my first peal (on Oct 21, so right after that mid-Oct 
boundary), and it miiiight be worth mentioning the Atlas Obscura folks who 
stopped by to film?

I don't have any numbers to back this up, but anecdotally I've heard that 
surgical masks aren't great for preventing the spread of covid or flu. 
That biases me toward the duckbills, but I know some people don't like how 
the around-the-head straps interact with hair/headwear/glasses.
