Where are people finding masks now? I haven't been out and only have 1 disposable left for when I need to pay bills. I did try making my own, but it was kind of a disaster.

Last Wed. at Ajijic tianguis there was a mask seller.  There wasn't much foot traffic at the tianguis and this seller's table was at the bottom of market, which now is just below Guadalupe Victoria.  

In Ajijic, I see signs outside residences advertising masks.  There is one on Independencia just west of Cinco de Mayo, aka Juarez.  There is another one on Ocampo near Cinco de Mayo also.  The signs come and go.

If you are unable to find one, please PM and I will give you a new-in-bag washable one.  I am in Centro Ajijic.

The Tepehua  ladies are at Pancho's every Saturday  at 10:30 with a wide selection of styles and nice fabrics. They're  well made, fit properly, and your purchase helps these women support their family. I bought 8 last Saturday and they're the first ones I am happy with. If they don't  fit properly and you constantly fuss with them you might as well not wear one.

my question would be where could I find light blue masks that are protective but thin unlike the cloth masks that have me suffocating.

I know what you mean about suffocating. The ones at Famacia Christina are the light blue ones that let you breath.

You can buy all types of mask on Mercado Libre. They have n95, n99 and surgical masks. I've ordered three times and they show up within a week.

And I don't need a lecture about buying the n95 masks. The ones on mercado libre are available top anyone.

I ordered some from Mercado Libre on April 1st .  They are still not here

A suggestion is that you cancel your order. Re-order from a merchant that has the green symbol of FULL. (you can modify your search on the left for only FULL results) Those items ship from Mercadolibre's warehouse and usually is 1 day to Chapala. I received a Saturday AM  purchase on Sunday about 1pm

Right now there is a huge problem with FedEx, Estafeta, and DHL because of the volume of deliveries.

Good suggestion Mostlylost.  Thank you.   The latest message from Mercado Libre is that they would be here on our before June 4th.  So, after waiting this long I hold out a while longer and then if they are not here I will implement your suggestion.

only the frail white masks with manual ties at farm cristina.

I guess they sold out of the blue ones.  Hopefully they will order more.
