When it comes to coronavirus pandemic essentials that will help protect you and your loved ones from catching COVID-19, there are four things in particular that our readers have been stocking up on. First and foremost, Powecom KN95 face masks are Amazon’s only masks that are FDA-authorized and have been tested by NIOSH. They’re approved for medical use because NIOSH found them to be 99.2% effective, which is even better performance than most 3M N95 masks. They’re also on sale for just $26.05 per 10-pack instead of $45, so it’s the perfect time to load up. After all, the coronavirus pandemic isn’t going anywhere for at least a year.

In addition to those Powecom masks that are perfect for high-risk situations like being anywhere that’s indoors around other people, there are three other things our readers love. 25¢ Jointown 3-ply masks for low-risk situations, Purell hand sanitizer pump bottles, and Clorox Disinfecting Wipes. Those first two things are on sale right now at the lowest prices since the pandemic began, and the third is available at slightly less inflated prices than what we’ve been seeing.

Those are all crucial things you need to have on hand, but there’s a fifth thing you should also grab — especially while it’s down to the best price of 2020. It’s the iHealth No-Touch Infrared Forehead Thermometer, which so many people out there refer to as the “iPhone of thermometers.” It’s sleek and stylish like something Apple would make, but it’s also wonderfully easy to use and accurate. Also like something Apple would make. This awesome no-touch forehead thermometer retails for $60, but it’s down to just $25.89 if you hurry. This is the first time in 2020 that it’s dropped below the $30 mark, so the last thing you want to do is miss out!

You can stay away from the person and just need it to hover near their forehead for a reading. The no-touch technology is specifically helpful during a time like this. The three ultra-sensitive sensors will have your reading in no time. This even comes with batteries, so you’ll be able to use it as soon as you get it.

While you’re likely spending a lot of money on cleaners, wipes, masks, and other items to help you stay healthy during the pandemic, this will only be a one-time cost that’s under $30. As we stated, this is the first time this is under $30, so you better act quickly.

Don’t just take our word for it. Here is the information from the Amazon product page:
