Amazon has a 50-pack of disposable face masks for pretty cheap right now and they are in stock. This 50-pack is priced at $16.46. Which is much cheaper than the other options on Amazon right now, that are close to $40. To these are closer to their regular price and not their pandemic price.
Disposable face masks are definitely needed right now. As these are going to do better at keeping you protected from catching the virus. Compared to cloth masks. And these are also not the ones that those on the frontlines need to use to do their jobs. Which is definitely important.
Face coverings are going to become the new standard for the foreseeable future. Now you're not really wearing a face covering to protect yourself from getting COVID-19, but instead to keep from spreading it to other people. Since this is a very contagious virus, and one person can unknowingly infect up to a hundred people – as we saw in South Korea.
While they might be a pain to wear all day long, they are definitely useful and will hopefully slow the curve so we can go back to a somewhat normal life. Though nothing is going to be completely normal for a long time.
These face coverings have a 3-ply design. With cotton ear loops. That is designed to make them feel more comfortable on your face. Instead of it being uncomfortable and rubbing against your ears. Which many health professionals have that issue, since they are wearing these masks all day long, every single day now.
Currently, you really only need to wear these face coverings when you are out and can't maintain social distancing. The biggest place to wear them is when you're grocery shopping. While grocers have gone to great lengths to try and keep their employees and customers safe with social distancing, it's still not 100% possible. So it's a good idea to wear a face mask.
