Thanks Lancer.  I did place orders with 2H and Bird Flu Protection (Reynolds) and even though delayed, they kept me up on the progress through e-mails and I eventually received my orders.  I heeded your advice and ordered other N95 varieties.

Dear Tired and muskrat,

Please look at this forum: go to the Pandemic Survival Tips and Find
Nanomask: Oregon Digital.
Look for the latest postings (at the bottom of the page). There is some
detailed info re respirator masks, etc.

Also, I don't know if swimming goggles would do the job. Does anyone
else have a clue? I know you can get proper protective eyewear at:
http://www.allheart.com/protectiveeyewear.html

I opted for Work Unisex Wrap Around Safety Glass (clear) for $10.

Hope this helps.
Rocky

PS. Perhaps this topic could be moved to a better place?

Health professionals are recommending N95 rated masks.

The mask doesn't necessarily need to filter out particles as small as the virus - the virus will not likely be floating around "free", but will be carried on microscopic droplets of moisture expelled by people who cough or sneeze.  It's these fine, mist-like droplets that are filtered out.  That probably removes 99% of your worries right there.

Some people have expressed concern that the nanomasks will get full too quickly, or too wet from breath condensation.  I've never used them so I can't comment personally.  I have two types of N95 mask, one with a breath valve and one without.  The valve version is for a healthy person who must wear it all day (such as me at work).  The full version is for a sick person who must be tended at home, since it filters their exhaled breath and protects everyone else in the household.  Or for occasional/brief usage by healthy individuals.  The valve helps keep the mask from getting too hot and humid from exhaled breath.

I have 4 and 6 year old children as well.  I bought the small sized CFR-1 mask for them from here:

http://store.internationalsafetyusa.com/disposable.html

They are N95 masks that seal around a childs face like a nano mask does.

The mask is on the lower left and the replacement filters are 2nd down on the right.  They are very reasonably priced and they came quickly. 

DO NOT purchase nano masks from Oregon Digital.  I've seen too many posts about people asking why they havent gotten their masks.  They are so backlogged as to be unreliable.   Apparently refunds are harder to get than your order.  I got my nano masks from www.2Hdistributors.com.  I went with the 2 mask combo deal and I think you get more filters in the order anyway.  They also came pretty quickly.

Here is where you can get Nano masks cheap with free shipping I ordered from them and they are great! Any mask that has a paper or cloth seal cannot completely seal around your face.  The silicone seal around the Nano mask is by far superior to any other mask!  Military approved gas masks do not have a cloth seal!!! they are silicone THINK about it people! I have worn $300 swat team/ Military gas masks they are silicone.  Ask swankyc about what he wore in the Marines for NBC (Nuclear Biological Chemical) masks! Buy what you want use what you want just remember don't save a buck to loose your life!

Can anyone explain to me a little more about the face masks/respirators? I understand the difference between N95 and N100, but I don't really understand the numbers that come after (ex. 8322, 9211,8210, etc..)

Does it matter which number you get as long as you get at least N95 for your mask???

Thank you so much Anita. A few months ago, I purchased a few masks (N100, 8322-- i believe--- at the time, i didn't know what kind of purchase so I just picked one type). i have since realized that I didn't have nearly enough masks and I really believe that having masks and other protective gear will help to greatly reduce our chances of infection.
After reading posts on this site, I thougth I would be N95 masks but when I went online I had NO idea which to buy! I saw 8211, 8210, etc.. and I didn't know which kind was best..  I went to your website and learned a lot.

Thanks for much for your help. Your website is great. It's very informative and has helped answer my questions!!!

Thanks, I will check back again soon. I didn't really understand much about the N95 masks, but the pictures on your site  helped. The websites I looked at for ordering the masks all showed pictures, so i thought that was great that you posted pictures as well as descriptions.  I found a few websites that gave recommendations (such as what masks would be bests for people with smaller faces, such as children, which have those exhalation values, etc) and I've used that info, plus  the info on your site, to decide which masks to buy.
I have not gotten any googles yet, other that the ordinary kind for things like chemical splashes, so i will definitely look at  your website when you upload info about googles and other protective equipment.

thanks again!

Available for IMMEDIATE delivery!

HI again, my hubby and I both tested our Triosyn T-3000 masks for fit,
ease of putting on, and wearing comfort. We felt we got a good seal for
both of our facial configurations. They were comfortable and quite easy
to breath through, tho as with any mask, it feels good when you take it
off if you have been wearing it quite a while. I was wearing regular glasses
at the time and they did not fog up at all. With the tight fit of goggles I
can't imagine there would be a fogging problem.

Here is some info regarding the masks:

"Approved by NIOSH (National Institute for Occupational Safety and
Health, part of the Center for Disease Control) as a P95 mask, the Triosyn
T-3000 has the scientifically proven ability throughout its effective life
to trap biological agents with the exclusive anti-microbial action of
Triosyn T50 powder (registered with the EPA)...With its higher P95
designation, the Triosyn has more effective filtration, with neither the
aerosol-use nor time-use limitations of the N95."

NIOSH approved P95 Particulate Respirator
Antimicrobial product protection
Consistent and reliable performance
Carbon layer for relief against nuisance levels of organic vapors
Fluid-resistant outer layer
Secure, comfortable fit w/padding, adjustable nose bridge, low breathing
resistance
Flatfold design for easy storage
At extremely high levels of bacteria and viruses, will perform for a full 8
hours
4 year effective life in the sealed pouch; 8 hrs out of the pouch

Caution: This product contains iodine and should not be used by anyone
allergic or sensitive to iodine, or by anyone pregnant or with a thyroid
condition. All instructions for the use and limitations of the Triosyn
T-3000 Respirator should be carefully read and understood by the
wearer prior to use.

NOTE: Sold in a box of 10, these T-3000 respirators are individually
packaged in sealed foil pouches. (Color may vary, blue or grey.)

Can be purchased, with immediate delivery, at:
http://www.homeemergencyusa.com
OR
http://www.rockbottomcompany.com

Sure hope this is helpful information. Rocky
