Buy the right masks before sold out

Walk around any crowded area during flu season and you'll see a common sight: people wearing medical face masks to protect themselves from pollution, germs and other contaminants. With the rapid spread of a new coronavirus, and increased concerns that there will be an outbreak in the US, these face masks are flying off drugstore shelves.

How COVID-19 Spreads

Person-to-person spread

The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person.

  • Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet).
  • Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.

These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.

Spread from contact with infected surfaces or objects

It may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes, but this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads.

The two types of face masks can help

Disposable face masks block large particles from entering your mouth, while a more tight-fitting N95 respirator mask is far more effective at shielding you from airborne illnesses. Both of these masks can help protect you from getting a viral infection

Despite that, fears of coronavirus have made finding these masks online difficult. As of Feb. 28, both face masks and N95 respirator masks are either sold out online or marked up significantly.Find the right Masks before you buy
