White Benehal N95 mask

With the spike in COVID-19 Delta variant cases in the US, you may want to trade up your cloth mask for a high quality N95 particulate respirator.

According to the U.S. government, the N95 particulate respirator is the best option for filtering out non-oil based airborne particles.

Many states like Pennsylvania, have issued mask mandates making the wearing of face masks mandatory for all students and teachers at schools, and the CDC has updated guidance on wearing masks indoors in high-transmission areas.

The N95 particulate respirator mask is regulated in the U.S. by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), a division of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The KN95 masks are regulated by the Chinese government.

N95 masks have a tighter seal and fit around the face to limit the air flow around the edges. According to the CDC, "N95 masks filter at least 95% of airborne particles but are not resistant to oil-based particles." For more information about N95 masks from the CDC click here.

N95 masks that are approved by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health will be marked with the NIOSH number.

Here is where you can buy N95 masks:

Austin Technology Supply is an authorized medical device distributor, a company based in Austin, TX. N95 masks and KN95 masks can be purchased in packs of ten or twenty, and can even be purchased in bulk quantities.

According to recognized lab testing, KN95 masks that are on the FDA Emergency Use Authorization List, can be a suitable substitute for an N95 mask. However, KN95 masks aren't NIOSH-Approved, and are therefore considered not as reliable in the U.S.
