Just in, 2/10/21 New CDC guidance on double masking. The benefits are clear: In the CDC study, a medical procedure mask alone blocked 42% of particles from a simulated cough, while a cloth mask alone blocked 44%. A cloth mask covering a medical procedure mask blocked 92.5% of the cough particles. And don't layer another mask on top of a KN95, either. That mask should be used alone, the CDC says. https://www.npr.org/sections/coro...ronavirus?

ALERT, Office Depot may be sending out fakes. See image below, OD on right, not the same as pictured on OD and other sites. BonaFidesmasks certified dealer on left. Powecon mentions OD as selling fakes. Office Depot is no longer on Powecom's "Fraudulent Website" webpage. http://www.powecom.com/Fraudulent_Websites.html​

Not sure about the picture that is posted, but the masks that we received through another source are like the ones on the right and the packaging authenticity scratch off number passed the Powecom verification website. Bonafidemasks also provides a link to that "anti-fake check," so, either the right hand masks are also genuine, or the Powecom verification process doesn't work.

Powecom packaging has a scratch off verification number. You can go to http://www.powecom.com/verification.html and input the number that is revealed and the website will show whether they made that package or not.

Authorized by the FDA
These are on the list of non-NIOSH-approved respirator models manufactured in China that are authorized by this Umbrella EUA for emergency use during the COVID-19 public health emergency.

From https://www.cbsnews.com/news/n95-...ke-seized/
Consumers should generally avoid shopping for such masks on Amazon and eBay, experts say. Instead, people should refer first to the CDC's list of N95 alternatives that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approves for use in health care settings and try to buy them directly from the manufacturer.

N95 Respirators Not for Use by the General Public
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) does not recommend that the general public wear N95 respirators to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including coronavirus (COVID-19). Those are critical supplies that must continue to be reserved for health care workers and other medical first responders, as recommended by current CDC guidance.

Wow! A genuine Covidoligist! He's been so busy he hasn't read the news since March.

If you actually worked in a hospital you would know that they can provide N95 to anyone who needs one now, and they just aren't buying them for most of the staff. Even if you wanted to wear these KN95's, they won't let staff wear outside provided masks (my sister tried to wear this exact mask at work, and got written up). So anyone buying these isn't affecting any US healthcare workers, pretend or otherwise. They'll all have the 2nd dose of vaccine soon anyway, so what's the diff?

Also, a respirator like this one is definitely needed by those of us unvaccinated, because we can't depend on the people around us to even wear a face covering correctly.

These masks are very good but personally it's not much more for the two strap version which gives a more secure fit. I bought mine from bonafidemasks.com.
yeah i got that pack as well. they're definitely NOT very comfortable either. I can see why they make a variation of these with exhaust valves (although, then you should wear a fabric cover over this)

Just so everyone knows these are not N95, the certification requires over the head straps. [i]"Legitimate N95s are designed with full head-straps that are stitched, stapled or soldered directly to the respirator to provide the proper seal and force inhaled and exhaled air through the filter. The cheaper earloops, which are glued to the mask and create a more unstable seal, made the masks significantly less effective. In many cases, frontline healthcare workers were forced to simply make do."

I am an MD and I've seen THOUSANDS of Covid patients. And the issue is all of you are inflating prices so it's harder for medical facilities to make them readily available for healthcare workers! If people would understand that masks are to limit the spread from YOU not to filter the air around you. The CDC does NOT recommend them as first line for the general population. But the general population snaps these up which keeps the price higher than if demand for these dropped. Stick to your surgical masks and wash your hands so those of us in aersolized environments can use more readily!! Thank you! And appreciate all the negative reps because I raise a viewpoint that you can't identify with
Man the greed and selfishness lately is really repulsive. Thanks for sharing.

Interesting that Powecom's website says Office Depot is "Not-Authorized reseller, may selling fake KN95 masks":

I've been wearing these masks 5 days a week, 10 hours a day for the last 6 months working construction. I wear a new one every day. I use a small clip on the earloops and have a reasonably large head, the result is a very tight seal and excellent filtration. These masks have been great for me, only have had a couple this whole time that had the earloops break. I'm going to be ordering 100 more soon.

My wife has the same issue with the ear loops ones. Smaller head I guess. Try the ones that strap around the back of your head for a more secure fit.
I've been wearing these since last summer. I have ear savers and with those you can reuse them many times while still keeping a tight fit that doesn't bother your ears. =initial

for the critics, do me a favor and search KN95 on SD and you'll see plenty of positive feedback. We have already hashed it out ad nauseum from all the "experts" I've got them from OD and they are legit.

I have a theory that these people are probably all open mouth coughers.
