Where to buy N95, KN95 face masks as COVID strains continue to mutate

N95 Face Masks (20-Pack), $199.95, available at DMB Supply

Wearing a face mask in public has become the new normal, and is also one of the most important things you can do to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus (Covid-19 pandemic) — especially as more contagious strains have been recently discovered in Brazil, South Africa, Denmark and the United Kingdom.

While N95 and KN95 face masks were hard to get and were being reserved mostly for front-line medical workers at the beginning of the pandemic last year, supplies of these items have expanded recently and more people have been ordering them online for personal use.

Duke University also published a study in August that says the three most effective types of face masks to prevent the spread of the coronavirus are N95, three-layer disposable and cotton. There were 14 types of face masks used in the study.

An N95 mask “is a respiratory protective device designed to achieve a very close facial fit and very efficient filtration of airborne particles,” according to the FDA.

Finding N95 masks to buy can be difficult since they’re in high-demand, but plenty of KN95 masks are currently available. The main difference between the two are KN95 masks are typically regulated by the Chinese government, while N95 masks are regulated by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health in the U.S., according to a report by Men’s Health.

KN95 masks aren’t regulated the same way N95 masks are in the U.S. and may not provide the same protection, though they’re likely more effective than a surgical mask. The CDC published a list of NIOSH-approved N95 respirators and the FDA has a list of non-NIOSH-approved KN95 respirator models approved for emergency use during the COVID-19 public health emergency.
