  • Coronavirus face masks need to be worn at all times whenever you leave your house according to the CDC, and there are plenty for sale online.
  • If you want something that will adequately protect you and those around you, however, you would be wise to stick to best-selling options on Amazon instead of trying unproven masks from random sites around the web.
  • Amazon has a special page on its website dedicated solely to face masks and several of the best-selling options on the page are now available at even lower prices than before.

Did you know there are actually still a handful of states that don’t require residents to wear face masks when they leave the house? Can you imagine being that stupid and reckless? Face masks a requirement in most areas because they’re extremely effective at slowing the spread of the novel coronavirus and other diseases. It even says right on the coronavirus page on the CDC’s website that you must “cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when around others.” If you don’t, you’re just asking for trouble. And even if you already tested positive for COVID-19, you still need to wear a face mask to ensure that you don’t spread it to other people. Do you really want to be responsible for anyone else catching the virus and potentially dying? No, of course you don’t.

Any cloth face covering will help protect you from the novel coronavirus as long as you also practice strict social distancing and good hygiene, which means using soap or hand sanitizer (which is back in stock at Amazon) to clean your hands anytime to touch a surface in public. Beyond that, it will protect other people around you in case you’re infected with COVID-19. This is crucial, but it doesn’t mean you should go buying up N95 face masks meant for healthcare workers and first responders. There’s a huge shortage of medical-grade masks right now, and using masks that are meant for people who are constantly at risk is shameful and selfish. That’s especially true since there are so many different options right now on Amazon that are in stock and ready to ship soon.

Amazon now has a special face mask page on its site that is dedicated solely to face masks and other protective covers. You’ll find plenty of different options there that range from surgical-style masks to various cloth covers. If you’d rather not browse through them all, we totally understand and we’re here to help. That’s why we’ve rounded up the three best-selling face masks on Amazon right now.

First, 3-Layer Face Masks From Jointown are the single best selling masks on Amazon right now. These are great three-layer masks that do a much better job of protecting you and those around you than a bandana or most homemade masks. They’re available right now at a new lower price of $26.94 per box of 50 thanks to a discount and an on-site coupon, which works out to just $0.54 per mask.

Next up, we have similar LeadPro 3-Ply Face Masks. These are also top-sellers on Amazon right now and they do just as good a job as Jointown’s masks. 50-packs are available for $29.99, which works out to $0.60 per mask just like the Jointown face coverings normally cost. They’re a fantastic option if Jointown’s masks sell out or if you just want to try a new brand.

Last but certainly not least, we have the MagiCare KN95 Face Masks. These masks are much thicker than the first two options and they filter smaller particles as well. They’re also more expensive, but it’s not a bad idea to keep a few around for special circumstances like if you have to go to the hospital or a doctor’s office. I even use KN95 masks when I’m grocery shopping because you can never be too careful. These popular masks are on sale for $2.99 each today when you buy a 20-pack, which is the best price we’ve seen in a long time.
