Why not, if they're available at a good or reasonable price?
And what, exactly, are "select other COVID-19 related items"? Lysol? Hand sanitizer?

I would have missed out on getting hand sanitizer from Walmart had it not been for a hot deals thread.

It's not one of the blocked items if that's what you're asking.

At the current time we're only blocking masks and the reason is because every mask thread created before the block was massively derailed and ended up being locked or deleted (and this is still happening in every new thread that gets shared before we remove it). The "deals" are also questionable as many of the sellers are trying to capitalize and profit off of the pandemic. Anyone wanting to find a mask can use the stickied thread in the Request a Deal forum.

These edits are done by mods but it doesn't show which mod did it. So although you didnt change it, you are on the hook for them changing it.

Actually, any edits on a post should show the moderator who made the edit. I can clearly see in the logs that MrDisco made the edit so I'm unsure of why in this case it's showing the OP's username. I'm guessing it's a one off bug because all the other edits I've made today show up properly.

Yes it should but on some of my thread titles were changed and it showed I changed it. Which was false in the thread below.

I think I have an idea of what might be happening. Since this is going off topic I'll just leave it at that and hopefully we can get the bug fixed soon.
