If you're asking this question "for later", fine.

If " for soon" - as in the next 4-8 weeks.....Does this fall under "essential business"?

Do you need someone to come out to your home and work in it... and potentially get/receive coronavirus.
To hang wallpaper?

Please consider your choices.

Neighborhood Chat / Re: should I be wearing a mask?

If you're looking for a simple handmade mask and don't have the skills or tools to make one yourself, consider supporting an artist/craftsperson on Etsy. There are a variety of masks available and you should be able to get one within a few days of ordering. https://www.etsy.com/market/masks

I bought one that says you can insert a filter. I haven't received it yet and am not sure what kind of filter to insert, but at least it's something.

Neighborhood Chat / Re: What will our community get from the Federal relief package?

Thanks donated to both.

Just putting it out there to make sure you choose to cover the processing fee for the organizations when you pay with a credit card. The processing fees really add up for organizations.

Don’t remember seeing that option but should be enough to cover the fee.
Hoping more people will donate to a great cause and help those out there in the frontline.

This piece by a research scientist ran in the Washington Post yesterday: "Simple DIY masks could help flatten the curve. We should all wear them in public."
https://www.washingtonpost.com/outlook/2020/03/28/masks-all-coronavirus/

"When historians tally up the many missteps policymakers have made in response to the coronavirus pandemic, the senseless and unscientific push for the general public to avoid wearing masks should be near the top.
The evidence not only fails to support the push, it also contradicts it. It can take a while for official recommendations to catch up with scientific thinking. In this case, such delays might be deadly and economically disastrous. It’s time to make masks a key part of our fight to contain, then defeat, this pandemic. Masks effective at “flattening the curve” can be made at home with nothing more than a T-shirt and a pair of scissors. We should all wear masks — store-bought or homemade — whenever we’re out in public."

I don't but I wonder if you could share what brand windows you're using. Thank you!

Even a bad mask will prevent you from touching your face and infecting yourself that way.
Not if you touch the mask, which untrained people do constantly. Stay home.
