- So many people are looking for N95 masks for sale in light of the fact that the CDC recommends we all should wear face masks anytime we leave our homes.
- Of course, the CDC also says we shouldn’t buy N95 face masks because hospital workers and other people on the front lines of the fight against the novel coronavirus have a much greater need.
- If you want extra protection without buying price-gouged N95 masks and taking resources away from hospitals, Amazon has KN95 face masks in stock right now.

When it comes to combating the spread of the novel coronavirus, Jointown 3-layer face masks are still by far the most popular option among our readers. Thousands and thousands of people buy them each week because we all know that the novel coronavirus isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. Actually, the very fact that states are beginning to reopen nonessential businesses far too soon basically guarantees that the inevitable coronavirus second wave will come sooner than expected. Just look at what’s happening in Texas right now and you’ll see that it’s unavoidable.
If you want to do your part to slow the spread of COVID-19 even as economies reopen, you need to do three things. First, as the CDC says right on its website, wear a mask every single time you go out of your home for any reason. Second, practice strict social distancing. And third, use alcohol-based hand sanitizer anytime you touch a surface in public. That’s it — if everyone would just do those three simple things, some studies believe the spread of the new coronavirus would be reduced by a whopping 80%.
The Jointown face masks we mentioned above do a fine job of protecting you as long as you also practice social distancing and good hygiene. They’re also wonderfully inexpensive at just 70¢ per mask, so you should definitely stock up on a few boxes while they’re in stock. There are some higher-risk situations where you want a bit more protection though. For example, when you go shopping in a grocery store, take public transportation, or fly on an airplane. That’s why it’s also a very good idea to stock up on some KN95 face masks that you can use in those situations, but KN95 masks are much more difficult to come by these days.
There’s no question that they’ll sell out soon, but Athphy KN95 face masks are somehow back in stock right now at Amazon. It has been about a month since we last saw them and they flew off the shelves back then. These face masks feature four layers of protection and are rated to filter 95% or more of microscopic airborne particles out of the air we breathe. You absolutely still need to practice strict social distancing and good hygiene, but these masks are great for some added peace of mind in higher-risk situations.
Athphy KN95 face masks are priced at $3.20 each right now on Amazon when you buy a box of 20, and they’re in stock so they’ll be delivered next week. Shipping times will start to slip very quickly now that the cat’s out of the bag though, so order a box or two now before they inevitably sell out.
UPDATE: The masks we initially linked are now sold out, but a popular alternative is back in stock at an even lower price with faster shipping!
