  • When it comes to coronavirus face masks, our readers are all stocking up on Powecom KN95 face masks this week while they’re discounted. They’re the only NIOSH-tested, FDA-authorized KN95 masks on Amazon and they filter up to 99.2% of small particles, which is better than most 3M N95 masks.
  • Jointown 3-ply face masks are also top sellers on Amazon while they’re down to just $0.29 each.
  • Those are both great options, but lots of people are going for something else instead: Black 3-ply face masks and black reusable cloth masks, that are sleek and stylish ways to keep safe.

If you’re not inside your home, you should be wearing a face mask. Period. End of story. 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 COVID-19 symptoms to appear, wearing a face mask also protects those around you in case you have the disease without knowing it. 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.

When it comes to any situation that is even remotely high-risk like riding public transportation, working in an office, or being anywhere that’s 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 Powecom KN95 face masks, which are shockingly affordable thanks to a rare discount right now at Amazon. They’re the only KN95 masks in stock at Amazon that are on the FDA-authorized list. They’ve also been tested by NIOSH and found to block up to 99.2% of small airborne particles like coronaviruses. That’s better performance than almost every 3M N95 face mask you can get! On top of that, each 10-pack comes with a free face shield as well as five BNX A96 masks that are made in the USA and filter up to 99% of 3-micron particles.
