The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has changed its face mask guidelines a few times over the course of the pandemic. In January 2022, it refreshed its recommendations once more, clarifying that well-fitted masks and respirators, such as National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH)-approved N95s and international KN95s, offer higher protection than loosely woven cloth options.

KN95 masks are considered the Chinese equivalent of N95s; they're multilayered, designed to filter 95 percent or more of particles in your surrounding air, feature ear loops on either side, and are disposable. There are many varieties of KN95 masks available, but only a handful have been previously approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for emergency usage in healthcare settings.

The FDA approved hundreds of imported KN95s in January 2020 when N95 respirators were in short supply and reserved for frontline workers. And while the agency revoked this emergency authorized list of non-NIOSH-approved respirator models manufactured in China in July 2021 due to the increased supply and availability of NIOSH-approved respirators, experts like Bill Taubner, president of Bona Fide Masks, previously told PEOPLE that one of the best ways to pick a KN95 mask is to find one that was formerly on the FDA's list.

Huheta KN95 Face Masks are made of five protective layers and are ideal to wear for extended periods of time.

Below, shop five previously FDA-approved KN95 face masks that have also earned the trust of thousands of Amazon shoppers. [Editor's note: Since KN95 face masks are in high demand right now, the options included in this story are fluctuating in stock.]
