The CDC’s coronavirus page makes it crystal clear how you can protect yourself and your loved ones from COVID-19, but so many people let their guard down recently. New coronavirus case numbers are now soaring across the US as a result, and upcoming school reopenings will only make matters worse. Long story short, you’ll need to be extra safe right now if you want everyone in your household to stay healthy.

The most important thing you need to do is obviously 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 for everyday use since you’ll also be practicing social distancing and staying at least 10 feet away from people. For higher-risk situations like riding public transportation of being indoors with other people indoors, you can also pick up some Powecom KN95 face masks that are actually FDA-authorized. They were tested by NIOSH and found to block up to 99% of small airborne particles instead of the minimum 95% for KN95 masks, and they’re probably the best disposable face masks you can get right now on Amazon.

Of course, there’s something else you need that’s just as important as face masks: hand sanitizer. 12-packs of 16-ounce Purell bottles are back in stock at the lowest price since the pandemic started, and you won’t find a lower price per ounce anywhere for Purell. You can also snag 6-packs of 2oz Purell bottles at one of the best prices we’ve seen in a long time.
