The Omicron variant has caused an upsurge in Covid-19 cases and created a need for further protective measures. Where a cloth mask would’ve provided adequate protection a couple months ago, it no longer does the trick effectively. This variant spreads fast and requires masks that have a high filtration capacity and fit more snugly over your nose and mouth.


With the highly contagious variant swiftly reaching record levels of infections, doctors and scientists highly recommend wearing KN95 or N95 masks. These masks can filter out particles and adjust to fit properly over your nose and mouth. Both have multiple layers of protective material to safeguard you. As their name advocates, both masks filter out 95 percent of particles.


Still wondering about the difference between the KN95 and the N95? Let’s break it down. Healthcare workers use N95 masks as they are more tightly fitted due to the head straps. KN95 masks are more readily available to the general population with their ear loops.


Add a plastic face shield for even more protection. When paired with a mask, it reduces the amount of droplets that come in and go out. It also helps lower the risk of infection or transmission because it prevents you from touching your face with unwashed hands.


Stock up on your KN95 masks and face shields today to do your part in slowing the spread of the Omicron variant. We can do this together.
