While COVID-19 may not be in the headlines as much as before, it's still important to mask up to protect against virus infections or complications from bad air quality. While you could wear that cloth mask you have stocked away, you may feel like swapping it for something that feels a little more substantial if you're looking for more protection.
TBH, it's not a bad idea. When it comes to ranking all the masks out there, the CDC makes it pretty clear that KN95s are the better option: "Loosely woven cloth products provide the least protection, layered finely woven products offer more protection, well-fitting disposable surgical masks and KN95s offer even more protection, and well-fitting NIOSH-approved respirators (including N95s) offer the highest level of protection," the organization states on its website.
Peep a few of the KN95 face masks, below:
If you're ready to upgrade your usual go-to mask or simply want to stock up on KN95s so that you can stash 'em in all your bags, the good news is that there are plenty of great (in-stock!) options out there right now. Some of them even come in fun colors! These are the best KN95 masks to buy right now:
