GTA - where to buy N95 surgical masks?

So this swine flu is spreading fast. I remember the SARS scare all too well. Where can I buy those N95 surgical masks - the blue ones - not the white ones for people in construction.

Want a box of 20 at least. The single ones at SDM are expensive. Tried ordering through Amazon, but shipping is USD28!! So I thought I'd try locally first.

Thanks!

What you mean you don't have any left from the avian flu scare? Oh wait, that never did materialize into the pandemic the media hyped it up to be.

SARS was blamed on Asians... who do we blame now for this outbreak?

I'll bite - cops?

I think Active Surplus has surgical masks - no idea what rating though.

You can get them by the box at Shoppers Home Health Care, can't remember the price though.

N95 only works if it fits you correctly. The only way to do that is to have a test where they put your head in a big bag and spray you with a nasty smelling chemical. If you can't smell it, the mask works. They do that with healthcare workers...at least...for my centre they did.

For me the N95 doesn't work. I'm fitted to another mask.

Don't waste your money if you have no idea if it works.

Be careful everyone....
I got an email yesterday from someone in the medical field that there are a few hush-hush cases in the Toronto hospitals that are 'questionable' as to whether or not it is Swine.
Obviously they don't want to report anything and cause a major panic until it is confirmed or uncontrollable. Also, they apparently have a plan in place to decrease the panic (whatever that means?!?) if Swine has indeed made it's way to the GTA.
In the meantime :
- Wash your hands, Wash your hands, Wash your hands, Wash your hands
- Try to avoid the hospitals/doctors offices if you can
- Be cautious of people who came from Mexico and are getting sick

The Swine flu (combination of pig, bird and influenza virus) is spread through the air.

I work in a medical office building beside hospital row and take public transit to work. I wasn't there for SARS and will be staying home if the Swine Flu hits.
