Where can you buy N95 masks as an Omicron variant of COVID surges?
The Omicron variant of COVID-19 is now spreading rapidly in the United States.
the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has said that among those who tested positive for the Omicron variant of COVID-19, many of the cases have occurred in people who have been fully vaccinated.
Some states, including New York, have reintroduced the mask mandate for interiors. In New Jersey, several cities have mandated internal masks and the “option is on the table” to follow the New York mandate. Face masks are also still required in local transport, in state government buildings and in schools.
While cloth masks have been helpful against the original coronavirus variants in the past, Health experts now have different opinions whether that is still the case, according to a report in the Washington Post. Standard, well-fitting surgical masks should at least be worn to optimize protection.
Many also believe in alternatives like N95 masks Regulated by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, the omicron variant’s high transmission rate makes it the best option – especially for those who are not vaccinated.
An N95 mask “is a respirator that has been developed to provide a very tight fit on the face and very efficient filtering of particles in the air,” according to the FDA. Fit test is also recommended to ensure a secure fit.
KN95 masks are a cheaper alternative to N95 masks as long as they meet “requirements similar to those of the CDC’s National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) for respirators”. according to CDC.
Several reputable dealers specialize in selling NIOSH certified N95 and KN95 masks with relatively fast shipping, especially companies like N95 medical supplies, N95MaskCo and Well before. (Be careful when shopping for high quality masks Amazon; there are tons Fraud Reports.)
