3 Ply Disposable Mask with Elastic Ear Loops
https://www.amazon.com/Disposable...085RKVJRM/

Several sellers are also selling disposable masks at these prices, but they don't always show up at the top of Amazon's search list. If one supplier's prices go up, you can find others under similar/comparable items. Other options:
Blue ($3.49): https://www.amazon.com/Disposable...084TQKLCC/
Pink ($4.35): https://www.amazon.com/LEIGONG-50...0895MVPNV/

Edit: Mods noted that the first two links were sellers with <1000 ratings on Amazon; the deal is also currently dead, but prices are fluctuating, so keep checking. An alternative (>1000 ratings seller) is available here [amazon.com] - currently at $4.18 for 50 blue 3-layer masks.

These masks are questionable. They claim to have a meltblown inner layer, but's whether that filter is effective is a complete crap shoot because there's no certification. This is an unknown mask being produced by an unknown manufacturer and being sold by an unknown merchant.

There are much better alternative available. Here's a few good sources for respirators:For surgical masks (the real ones at least) it's difficult to find a reliable vendor that sells to the general public.
  • Manufacturers such as Halyard (Kimberly Clark) and Cardinal are well known.
  • Insist on ASTM certification [astm.org]. Here's a good explanation [crosstex.com]. (The quality of this brand is unknown, but the info is good).
  • At the very least, the mask should have a "meltblown" layer (not just "non-woven").
  • These Level 2 masks look good, though I haven't tried them myself. Made in the US too: Armbrust [armbrustusa.com] (they have a Black Friday deal too).
TLDR: These masks are questionable.
N95 > KN94 or KF95 on FDA list [fda.gov] > real ASTM [astm.org] surgical mask > everything else (better than nothing)

Some good points; thanks for posting some alternatives for folks at risk, those who are older, or those with comorbidities who need medical grade protection.

Disposable masks like these are generally intended to protect others from a sneeze, cough, or droplets from casual interaction. Vendors issue these for free if needed when entering an establishment. I have used them to give to friends so they are never caught without one, and to hand out to the homeless. I keep some in the car to wear them myself when without my cloth mask. I also have a few N95's I use when it's a smoky day or if I think I'll be around someone symptomatic.

One recommendation was for masks made in the USA; I'm not sure this is so relevant since 99% of all masks are made in China, and Asia is doing a much better job of masking for COVID-19 control. For those who prefer, the masks from the second link posted are made in the USA and are currently priced $3.50.

Another alternative for those who prefer is the 2*50 masks for $11.99 deal posted here. That works out to just a little under twice the cost per mask, but to each his own!

Apparently, the masks in the second link are NOT made in the usa. In the product Q and A section the seller says they're made in China. One person even posted a video of the box which says "made in usa" but then shows some Chinese writing on the box indicating that they're actually made in china.

The first review I read for the first linked product does not seem very appealing... "In a household zip lock bag that is dirty inside and outside. Sketchy bootleg product, buyer beware!"

I love when I see someone wearing a mask, in the car, alone. Perhaps if they took it off and got some oxygen, things would clear up.

If you're going to several places in one trip it's advised to leave your mask on instead of taking it off after the first place and possibly spreading rona all over yourself and your vehicle that you may inadvertantly touch later on and spread to yourself.

But yeah, let's get mad about things that don't affect us.

If the wearer IS infectious, they would need to be completely sterile otherwise they would be covered in viral particles from pre mask application anyways. If the wearer is not infectious, they aren't the source, and if the mask was contaminated from exposure to expelled particles in public from an infected individual, odds are it is all over them anyways. Even if only the mask was contaminated (or was most contaminated, as it may be biased due to the negative pressure from inhalation), assuming it actually stopped the viral particle from being inhaled which is suspect with unrated masks anyways, it makes more sense to remove a contaminated object from your face than risk subsequent permeation or involuntary touching of the face, which people do approximately 16 times an hour or so.

* I have worked in a microbiological lab with infectious agents. We had a lesson where a UV dye was hidden and a bit later the lights were shut off to show us contamination. Even when trained students are operating under strict conditions, spread happens. You think an untrained individual is going to keep things sterile in a dynamic environment. Lol, ok.

It does affect me and all of us. We are looking at unprecedented restrictions of economic and personal liberties, for a virus that has shown to be no more deadly to sensitive populations than virulent flu strains. Combine that with inaccurate testing, massive profits for mega corps, its affect on a presidential election, and the source of said virus, yeah, sheeple protecting themselves from nothing in their car is a terrifying sign of what the masses will accept.

I want real data, and objective and open discourse about this.
