5 Highly Rated KN95 Face Masks You Can Get on Amazon
Editor's note: As of July 6, 2021, the Food and Drug Administration revoked its emergency authorized list of non-National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health-approved respirator models manufactured in China due to the increased supply and availability of NIOSH-approved respirators. All KN95 masks included in this story were previously approved by the FDA for use in healthcare settings.
Deciding on what kind of face mask to wear nowadays can be overwhelming. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that all individuals, regardless of vaccination status, wear one with two or more layers while indoors in public settings. With this in mind, many people are turning to KN95 masks, which are imported from China and considered the equivalent of N95s.
KN95 masks are multilayered, designed to filter 95 percent or more of particles in your surrounding air, feature ear loops on either side (versus headstraps), and are disposable, just like blue surgical masks. There are many varieties of KN95 masks available right now, but only a handful have earned the trust of Amazon shoppers — and thousands of their five-star ratings and reviews.
Here are the best KN95 face masks on Amazon, according to reviews:
- Dr. Family KN95 Face Mask, Pack of 5, $13.99 (orig. $14.75)
- Powecom KN95 Face Mask, Pack of 10, $8.47 (orig. $12.04)
