  • By now you must know that the CDC says everyone should be wearing protective face masks anytime they have to go out for any reason.
  • We all know that, but so many people still seem to be ignoring that crucial advice — whether you’re going to the supermarket or just going for a walk, you need to wear a face mask.
  • Since the need for face masks isn’t going away anytime soon, Amazon has a special page on its site that is dedicated to all different types of face masks that are in stock and ready to ship.

If you visit the coronavirus page on the CDC’s website right now, and you’ll see the following recommendation: “cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when around others.” That means anytime you need to leave your house to do anything, be it shop for groceries, put gas in your car, or visit a doctor’s office, you need to wear something over your face. And here’s one more like from the CDC site that everyone should take note of: “Do NOT use a face mask meant for a healthcare worker.”

Any cloth face covering will play a big role in protecting you from the novel coronavirus as long as you also practice strict social distancing and good hygiene. Beyond that, it will protect other people around you in case you’re infected with COVID-19. This is crucial, but it doesn’t mean you should go buying up N95 face masks meant for healthcare workers and first responders. There’s a huge shortage of medical-grade masks right now, and using masks that are meant for people who are constantly at risk is shameful and selfish. That’s especially true since there are so many different options right now on Amazon that are in stock and ready to ship soon.

Amazon now has a special face mask page on its site that is dedicated solely to face masks and other protective covers. You’ll find plenty of different options there that range from surgical-style masks to various cloth covers. If you’d rather not browse through them all, we totally understand and we’re here to help. That’s why we’ve rounded up the three best-selling face masks on Amazon right now.

First, best-selling Jointown 3-Ply Face Masks are the single best selling masks on Amazon right now. These are great three-layer masks that do a much better job of protecting you and those around you than a bandana or most homemade masks. They’re currently on sale at a discount of just $34.99 per box of 50, which works out to $0.70 per mask. That’s the lowest price we’ve ever seen for these best-selling masks.

Next up, we have similar 3-Layer Face Masks From XHW. These are also top-sellers on Amazon right now and they do just as good a job as Jointown’s masks. 50-packs are also available right now for $34.99, which works out to the same $0.70 per mask.

Last but certainly not least, we have Magicare KN95 face masks that are back in stock. These masks are much thicker and more rigid than the first two options and they filter smaller particles as well. They’re also more expensive, but it’s not a bad idea to keep a few around for special circumstances like if you have to go to the hospital or a doctor’s office. At $4.80 per mask, they’re actually not too bad considering we’ve seen som sellers charge as much as $15 or more for masks like these.
