I saw a stack of these 5 packs of Dasheng N95 Safety Masks at my local Lowes. Checked half a dozen zip codes and they seem to have good availability around the US except in the Northeast.

Price... meh, but availability seems slick.

CDC said that the Coronavirus is spread "through respiratory droplets or small particles, such as those in aerosols" on Friday, 9/18/20.

Than today, 9/21/20, reverted to saying that the Coronavirus is spread "through respiratory droplets or small particles, such as those in aerosols"

It appears CDC cannot make up its mind whether the Coronavirus is airborne or not. My point is that if CDC determines that the coronavirus is airborne then it will be important for people to wear an approved KN95 or N95; which, is effective against aerosols.
Yep, saw this today. My son is going to start some hybrid schooling in a couple weeks and was thinking it might be good to have some N95 masks on hand since he will be in a smaller size classroom, etc. in an older building, i.e., not exactly high-end ventilation. Ordered some of these to help with that, and the fact that we'll be prepared for aerosol transmission is a bonus. Also on the Honeywell alert thing to get some of their masks once they are back in stock.

CDC has become political and pressured by politicians to not cause panic. They will keep changing statements. Also, to be fair, information about this disease is evolving.

Common sense and medical understanding says that Respiratory Communicable Diseases are spread through the air and it's best to protect yourself by wearing a medical mask. This was true in February and it's true now and forever.

Not just the cloth mask or dust mask, but at least an ASTM level mask. N95 is better. Respirators the best.

Still too pricey per unit cost.
Is it really too pricey for a real N95? I'm not being sarcastic. I haven't been keeping up with the prices, but this is the first time I've seen genuine N95 masks for $4 each. Previously, they have all been KN95 masks. Actually, this is the first time I've seen genuine N95 for public sale.

Even the most popular 3M/Halyard/Kimberly-Clark/etc. medical-grade mask can have a poor seal around the edges. That's why people undergo FIT testing to ensure a particular type of N95 mask will work for their face. I wouldn't assume this mask is "cheaply made" just because it doesn't fit some people. And slapping on overhead loops to KN95s isn't a bad thing if the KN95 can then pass N95 testing standards.

Dasheng is a Chinese company.

I wouldn't trust medical products from China. Just recently, the news covered CBP seizing counterfeit Chinese masks. In Europe, 20-30% of mask shipments from China are regularly considered too low quality. So unless you think you are able to identify counterfeits and determine quality, it's a bit risky.

I want to be protected even if other people look at me like I'm crazy for wearing an N95 while they wear a fabric mask.
<N95 masks microdose you with the virus particles, giving you a free inoculation. It's the large doses that lead to hospitalizations

Feel free to post a link where we can order US-made N95s or European-made FFP2s.

I would say most of the genuine made-for-hospital N95 masks are also made in China. That's why when we ran out, we had to charter planes to get them from China.

I would rather use made-in-Korea KF94 or nanofiber masks than made-in-China N95/KN95 masks.
KF94 masks are lighter, much more comfortable to use, and often cheaper, not to mention more trustworthy.
Mask usage was widespread in Korea even before the pandemic because of micro-dust pollution from China. Koreans know how to make and use masks, which is why they have had one of the most successful response to the pandemic.
Can you recommend a specific site / mask that you feel is trustworthy?

Thank you
