Still no masks

Guidance on coronavirus and a place to share concerns and support
A week ago the rules on PPE changed. Care Workers attending Non symptomatic Shielded individuals should wear apron, gloves and now a mask. Where we live they were supplied with 50 masks. They have not managed to organise another delivery. To comply with the rules they need 80 masks a day to deal with the 10 shielded people on this site. It is a woeful situation.
An article in the first edition of today's Guardian sums it up :

Ministers 'must be open with NHS about PPE shortages'

Top hospital boss says frankness is only way to help service, even if opponents ‘weaponise’ admission


NHS ... same problem for paid care workers ... and for many family carers , who have to source their own.
I just wondered where you are getting masks from? My father has tested positive for Coronavirus. I have been trying to source some but getting no where. I looked at Screwfix but they are now just providing them for NHS workers. Any suggestions? Than k you.
