Pilots face layoffs and an uncertain future as coronavirus hammers the airline industry

Thousands of pilots across the country are facing pink slips in a matter of weeks unless the airline industry receives more financial aid from the federal government. For many of them, flying has been their dream since they were kids, and the crisis in the industry has left pilots young and old stuck in a holding pattern — either hoping for a miracle or eyeing the exit.

On Thursday, executives from the major U.S. airlines met with White House chief of staff Mark Meadows in an attempt to secure more emergency funding. The meeting included CEOs Doug Parker of American Airlines, Scott Kirby of United and Southwest’s Gary Kelly.

TSA passenger checkpoint numbers fell from nearly 2.3 million on March 1 to just 90,000 by mid-April, amid pandemic lockdowns and public health concerns. Passenger travel has since recovered somewhat, but at its best has been no more than half of

As layoffs loom, pilots face difficult future

The Best Face Masks to Buy Online

The fashion world is stepping up in a time of need: Countless companies are now making, selling and donating non-medical grade face masks for daily protection from COVID-19.

Demand for the best face mask options has soared in recent months, in part because the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention now recommends wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) masks in public settings to help slow the spread of COVID-19. PPE masks are usually made from breathable a fabric like cotton and differ from a surgical mask and N95 respirators that experts say should be reserved for health care workers who are caring for the sick.

In times of crisis, it’s heartwarming to see companies we love and support giving back using the tools and skills they know best. Nordstrom, the largest employer of tailors in the country, has trained its alterations teams to make face masks to distribute to health care

Now that we’ve adjusted to the “new normal” in the age of coronavirus (COVID-19), many states are slowly starting to open back up. It’s more important than ever to stay safe while venturing out to stores, work, doctor’s appointments, and more. That’s why the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that people wear a cloth face covering to slow the spread of the virus when you’re out in public. While not as effective as a medical-grade mask or an N95 mask, these coverings provide an extra layer of protection by blocking respiratory droplets, which is the primary way that COVID-19 is transmitted. Not only that, but in light of new data, the CDC recently reported that wearing a mask may actually protect

Some scammers hide behind sites selling face masks

The face mask has turned into what some call a “nec-cessory” — a necessary fashion accessory. It’s vamping into a clothing category that allows you to express your political voice or highlight hobbies, much like a T-shirt or a baseball cap.

But consumers who shop online for these “nec-cessories” are being warned to look beyond the clever patterns. Some consumers clearly aren’t happy with their shopping experiences.

40 Fashion-Forward Face Masks To Express Your Personal Style

Fashion has always had a way of taking our core wardrobe essentials — outerwear, underwear, and everything in between — and turning them into statement pieces. Consider the trusty trench coat, for example, which was originally created to shield soldiers from the elements but, over time, turned into one of the most distinctive utility apparel items a person could own. And don’t get us started on how the functional bike short has morphed into a top streetwear trend that will not go away (even after its initial rise and fall in the ’90s). It’s no surprise, then, that the protective face coverings we’ve been advised (and in some cases, ordered) to wear outdoors to curb the spread of the coronavirus have quickly been embraced and beautified by the fashion world.

“It just felt like there was a need [for a stylish face mask],” says Hillary Taymour, founder of the sustainable

ET Style has the low down on where to buy the best kids face masks.

If you’re a parent looking for personal protective equipment (PPE) guidelines for your children, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that anyone over the age of two wear a face mask while outside of their home.
