- With millions of people gathering for Thanksgiving last week, the spread of COVID-19 in the US is expected to skyrocket in the coming weeks.
- It’s now more crucial than ever that we all take precautions in order to keep ourselves and our families safe.
- We’ll show you where to get things like the FDA-authorized face masks that have been certified by NIOSH, as well as Purell hand sanitizer at the lowest prices on the internet.
We’re now almost a year into the coronavirus pandemic, and we know far more about the virus than we did in the early days of the outbreaks in the US. That said, the basic precautions people need to take to keep themselves and their families safe haven’t changed. Wear a face mask. Practice social distancing. Wash your hands frequently, especially after touching surfaces or objects that could be contaminated. Regularly clean and disinfect surfaces in your home and office.
If you’re wondering what happens when people get pandemic fatigue and let their guard down, look no further than the state of the pandemic right now in the US. New coronavirus case numbers across the US are already soaring to new records right now, and we could hit 250,000 or even 300,000 new daily COVID-19 cases in the coming weeks thanks to irresponsible people who traveled and gathered during Thanksgiving.
It’s really not rocket science, people, and there are just a few tools that you need to have at your disposal in order to do it right. Those tools include FDA-authorized KN95 face masks that work as well as 3M N95 masks according to NIOSH, Purell hand sanitizer, Purell wipes, and more. In this post, we’ll show you where to get the best possible coronavirus protection products at the lowest possible prices.
Face masks for high-risk situations
Some situations are higher-risk than others when it comes to catching COVID-19. For example, being indoors around other people and riding on public transportation are both high-risk scenarios. Meanwhile, grocery shopping in a large open space or being outside while practicing social distancing are low-risk situations. You need to wear a face mask in any of those circumstances, but the mask you choose doesn’t have to offer medical-grade protection in lower-risk situations.
If you’re going to be inside near other people, at a doctor’s office, riding public transportation, flying on an airplane, or anywhere else where the risk of contracting COVID-19 is high, you should have a face mask that offers the best possible protection. Unless you want to pay $10 or $15+ on a medical-grade N95 mask, Powecom KN95 face masks are the best in the business. In fact, according to NIOSH’s testing, these Powecom masks work even better than most 3M N95 masks, filtering up to 99.4% of small airborne particles from the air.
Powecom’s mask us one of just two types of FDA-authorized KN95 masks on Amazon, and 10-packs are on sale at the lowest price we’ve seen all month. When they inevitably sell out again, you can pick up FDA-authorized AccuMed KN95 masks instead. They’re also NIOSH-tested and found to work as well as NIOSH N95 masks from the likes of 3M, Honeywell, and more.

Face masks for low-risk situations

If you insist on using basic cloth masks though, at least make sure you get high-quality maks. You’ll find three great options below, including Amazon’s best-selling 3-ply masks and top-rated reusable cloth face masks.

Keeping your hands clean is crucial, but constantly washing your hands with soap and water while you’re out and about isn’t feasible.
