In the early days of the novel coronavirus outbreak here in the United States, it was impossible to find face masks in stock anywhere online. It’s still not easy even now, of course, but BGR Deals readers know that Amazon has actually managed to stock some over the past couple of weeks. We’ve been doing our best to let readers know each and every time Amazon’s best-selling 3-layer face masks are back in stock, and tens of thousands of our readers have been able to get them as a result. This is important, of course, because the CDC recommends that we wear face coverings like this every single time we leave the house.

That CDC directive isn’t going to change anytime soon, so you would be wise to stock up on these face masks now while you can. They do a great job of helping to protect you as long as you practice strict social distancing and good hygiene. That means staying away from people when you’re outside and washing your hand thoroughly with soap or hand sanitizer anytime you touch a surface outside of your home. And by the way, hand sanitizer is somehow in stock right now as well at Amazon.

Those face masks are great for normal outings when you can stay far away from everyone else. If you have to go indoors anywhere, however, you should consider something that’s even more effective at blocking viruses and preventing the spread of the novel coronavirus. We’re not suggesting that you should buy the N95 masks that hospitals need so desperately. Instead, you should try to find yourself some KN95 face masks that are just as effective.

KN95 masks have been almost impossible to find on Amazon or at any other retailer. The few options that have appeared recently at Amazon have been designated solely for hospitals and other healthcare professionals, but that changed today. We’re not sure how, but a handful of sellers have managed to stock KN95 masks and they’re available to buy right now.

5-layer KN95 face masks can be purchased in 20-count boxes that are available for between $64.79 while supplies last. At just over $3 per mask, that’s actually a pretty great price. You can also pick up 10-count boxes of these KN95 face masks for around the same price, but shipping is now delayed since our readers have been buying them up so quickly.

Both of the aforementioned masks are in stock right now on Amazon and are shipping out quickly. That said, they’ll undoubtedly sell out quickly now that the cat is out of the bag, so definitely hurry up and grab some while you still can. You’ll find a few other brands right here once those sell out, and don’t forget about 3-layer face masks that are much cheaper at $0.80 each.
