  • Amazon’s best-selling face masks are still the most popular coronavirus purchase among our readers, but hand sanitizer is a close second.

The CDC’s coronavirus page is extremely clear, so there’s no mistaking the measures that everyone needs to be taking right now in order to protect themselves from COVID-19. First and foremost, you need to wear a face mask anytime you leave your house for any reason at all, whether it’s to go to the grocery store or just to take a walk around town. Common 3-ply masks like Amazon’s best-selling Jointown face masks are more than enough to do the job — you don’t need a medical-grade N95 respirator since you’ll also be practicing social distancing and staying at least 10 feet away from people whether you’re inside or outdoors. You can pick up some popular MagiCare KN95 masks to use in higher-risk areas like public transportation or in small stores, but those 60¢ 3-layer masks are more than good enough for most situations.
