  • It was almost impossible to find thermometers with Amazon Prime shipping for a while due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, but the best one we’ve ever tested is finally back in stock: iHealth’s No-Touch Infrared Forehead Thermometer.
  • This is a wonderfully sleek model that is often referred to as the “iPhone of forehead thermometers” because it features a terrific minimal design like something Apple might make.
  • All you have to do is hold this thermometer near your forehead and press one button — an accurate temperature reading will then be displayed on the screen in less than one second.

The most important low-tech tool you need during the novel coronavirus pandemic is a face mask. Always remember to wear a face mask at all times when you’re not inside your home. Amazon’s best-selling face masks are on sale right now for just 50¢ each, and you can get FDA-authorized Powecom KN95 face masks on sale right now for higher-risk situations like being indoors around other people or riding public transportation. You also need strong hand sanitizer. Pump bottles of Purell hand sanitizer are actually in stock right now at Amazon, but you can get a much better deal on best-selling Medex hand sanitizer with the same formulation as Purell. It’s sold in big stores like CVS, Whole Foods, Costco, and 7-Eleven, so it’s a brand you can trust.

On top of that, there are a few high-tech tools that you should have on hand in the age of the coronavirus. The first is a pulse oximeter, which is a fantastic device to have on hand if you’re exhibiting some symptoms but you’re not certain if you have the flu or COVID-19. This little device measures the oxygen saturation level in your blood which should be somewhere between 95% and 100% when you’re healthy. Some coronavirus patients have been found with readings as low as 50%, and anything under 90% is considered by the Mayo Clinic to be unhealthy.

The other high-tech tool you should have is just as important as a pulse oximeter: you definitely need a good thermometer that’s accurate and can deliver fast temperature readings. The iHealth No-Touch Infrared Forehead Thermometer is the best-selling model on Amazon and it’s finally back in stock. Many people call this model the “iPhone of forehead thermometers” because it’s so sleek and minimalistic, it seems like something Apple might design. It also happens to be on sale right now at the lowest price since before the coronavirus pandemic began!
