Take one look at what’s going on in Florida, California, Texas, Arizona, and several other states across the US you’ll immediately realize that things are going to get far worse before they finally start getting better. So many people with lockdown fatigue are letting their guard down, and other people are just plain stupid so they refuse to wear face masks. Now, coronavirus cases are skyrocketing as a result.

The CDC’s coronavirus page makes it crystal clear how how can protect yourself and your loved ones 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 the block. Common 3-ply masks like Amazon’s best-selling Jointown face masks are perfect for most situations, and they’re only $0.50 each. 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. You can also pick up some popular MagiCare KN95 face masks at the lowest price ever so you can use them in higher-risk situations like riding on public transportation, going inside small stores, or visiting a doctor’s office.

In addition to face masks, however, there’s something else you need that’s just as important: hand sanitizer. Individual bottles of Purell hand sanitizer are actually in stock right now at Amazon which is quite rare these days, but prices are through the roof. 2-liter pump bottles of Purell are $99, which is still pricey but actually a bit less than we’ve seen in recent weeks. If you already have bottles that you’re looking to refill, you can actually get Purell for less than $1 an ounce by picking up 33.8-ounce refill packs or tabletop kits with 2 liters of Purell for $65, which is the best per-ounce price you’re going to find.

Even more surprisingly, you can actually buy Purell sanitizing wipes right now on Amazon. It should be noted that prices are quite inflated right now because demand is so high —especially on the wipes — so these are only for people with a very urgent need.

You should also note that there are now several other options for high-quality hand sanitizers that are in stock at Amazon, and they offer a much better value. In fact, several of them are even stronger than Purell with higher alcohol content. The strongest hand sanitizer you can get right now on Amazon is SupplyAID 80% Alcohol Hand Sanitizer Spray, which is available right now for just $17.89 per 2-pack of 8-ounce bottles. You also have a rare chance to pick up Amazon’s own Solimo brand hand sanitizer, but it’ll definitely sell out soon.
