Read on to find out where to buy N95 masks for you and your family, as well as other details about the N95 mask.

Designed to fit snugly over your mouth and nose, the N95 mask prevents you from breathing as much unfiltered air as possible. If properly fitted, the mask blocks 95% of small particles in the air you breathe.

However, it also limits the amount of air you breathe. People tend to feel even more breathless with the N95 mask, and more effort is required to breathe. The mask does not completely remove the particles or eliminate the risk of respiratory diseases or any illnesses.

Tip: Make sure that the N95 mask you’re using is certified by the US National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH)
