New coronavirus cases are surging all across the country yet again now that schools have reopened, things are only going to get worse as we head into the winter and flu season arrives. Thankfully though, there’s also some good news. Unlike the first coronavirus spike back in March and April, people now have much better access to the tools they need to help protect themselves from COVID-19. We’re talking about strong hand sanitizers from top brands including Purell hand sanitizer and Suave hand sanitizer, and of course, face masks.

Amazon has plenty of Jointown 3-ply face masks that have been best-sellers ever since the coronavirus pandemic first reached the US. They work great in low-risk situations when combined with strict social distancing, and they’re sold directly by Amazon as opposed to a third-party. What’s more, they’re extremely affordable — with a normal retail price of $29.99 for a box of 50 masks, they cost just $0.60 apiece. That’s already a tremendous value for such an essential tool to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. But today, a special Amazon sale with double discounts slashes the price to a new all-time low. A deep discount and an extra coupon you can clip drops the price of a 50-pack of Jointown coronavirus face masks to just $12.37. That works out to only $0.25 per mask, and it’s a new all-time low price!
