Due to the coronavirus, N95 masks are flying off the shelves.
These are the masks you sometimes see people wearing on airplanes and you think to yourself, “why is that weirdo wearing a mask?”
According to the CDC, the definition of these masks is…
“The N95 respirator is the most common of the seven types of particulate filtering facepiece respirators. This product filters at least 95% of airborne particles but is not resistant to oil.”
At this moment, I’m not one of those weirdos walking around town wearing my N95 mask.
But, I do own them and they are part of my complete kit. (Kit is covered in this free DVD.)
There are a bunch of companies that make these masks, but you really can’t go wrong with the 3M brand.
Hopefully, the virus won’t spread like crazy and we won’t have to leave home wearing one of these masks.
But, for the protection they offer, they’re dirt cheap, so I would definitely have some on hand.
It’s better to buy now…
Since if this virus does spread, these masks could end up costing a small fortune. (Kinda like .22 ammo did a few years ago when there was a shortage.)
