  • The most popular coronavirus masks we cover right now are DecoPro KN95 face masks, which makes sense since they’re the only NIOSH-tested, FDA-authorized KN95 masks on Amazon right now.
  • Jointown 3-ply face masks are also extremely popular among our readers and everyone else — they’re the best-selling masks on Amazon’s entire site right now.

When it comes to protecting yourself and everyone around you from contracting COVID-19, everyone knows what the most important thing you can do is. Yes, it’s important to sanitize your hands constantly with Purell hand sanitizer or another strong hand sanitizer, and yes, it’s crucial that we all practice social distancing. But the #1 most important thing we can do right now is to wear a face mask.

Every single time you leave your home for any reason whatsoever, you should be wearing a face mask. Face coverings protect you from becoming infected with the novel coronavirus if someone nearby is sick. And since it can take up to 14 days for symptoms to present — if any symptoms even present at all — wearing a face mask also protects those around you in case you have COVID-19. People can spread the novel disease by coughing, sneezing, singing, yelling, or even just talking normally during a conversation, and face masks can dramatically reduce the odds of spreading or contracting the virus.

For any situation that is even remotely high-risk like riding public transportation or being indoors around other people, you need very good protection if you want to be as safe as possible. It doesn’t get any better than DecoPro KN95 face masks, which are available right now at Amazon. They’re the only KN95 masks in stock right now at Amazon that are on the FDA-authorized list, and they’ve been tested by NIOSH and found to block more than 95% of small airborne particles like coronaviruses.

For lower-risk situations like being outdoors while practicing social distancing, you don’t need something quite as effective if you don’t want. Most people wear those blue 3-ply face masks you see everywhere, like these best-selling masks from Amazon. Those are great, but there’s another option that many people have been searching for lately. That’s right, we’re talking about black face masks that are far sleeker and more stylish, and we found a few terrific options for you today at Amazon.

PM Performotor black 3-Ply face masks are the best-selling and highest-rated option on Amazon for disposable masks. They’re just like the blue 3-ply masks everyone wears, but they’re jet black instead and they only cost $0.46 per mask. If those sell out, Bingfone black 3-Ply face masks are just as good and they only cost another $0.02 per mask right now.

If you’re on the lookout for reusable cloth masks as opposed to disposable face masks, we’ve got a few terrific options for you as well. The highest-quality option that’s in stock right now is the Auliné Collection black reusable face mask, which has the best ratings on Amazon. At $7.49 per mask though, they’re a bit pricey. Some good options that are less expensive include BeatBasic black cloth masks and Fecedy black cloth face masks, both of which have great reviews on Amazon. Just remember that although these masks are all reusable, you need to be sure to wash them thoroughly and you definitely don’t want to keep reusing them forever. If you want to be safe, you should probably discard your mask after a few washes and switch to a new one.
