Important note: A spokesperson for the CDC tells Finder most people should wear cloth face masks "in public settings and when around people who don’t live in your household" — especially when social distancing isn't possible.

Finder vets each mask retailer as a legitimate reseller prior to listing by confirming business and item documentation. We also request a physical sample to compare against what is advertised. We do not test any mask for its filtration capabilities, and none of the masks listed here are NIOSH-certified to our knowledge. Read the CDC's page on counterfeit respirators to learn more about NIOSH certification

What are N95 face masks?

N95 Filtering Facepiece Respirators, also known as N95 masks, fit more tightly around the face than surgical masks, and are designed to filter 95% of particles — up to 0.3 microns in size. This means that N95 masks are capable of filtering out viruses and bacteria, including airborne particles and liquid contaminants.

N95 masks are tested, evaluated and approved by the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), which is why you’ll see the words NIOSH-certified when shopping for N95 face masks.

Are surgical N95 respirators the same thing as N95 masks?

N95 surgical respirators are a subset of N95 masks and are intended for use by healthcare personnel who come into contact with airborne and fluid hazards — like sprays of blood and other bodily fluids — during surgery. Simply put, you don’t need to get a surgical N95 respirator if you’re not performing surgery.

Are N95 masks reusable?

No. N95 respirators should be used for a maximum of 8 to 12 hours and should be discarded before meals and bathroom breaks, according to the CDC. An N95 mask should also be discarded when it becomes damaged or deformed, no longer seals the face properly, is visibly sullied or is contaminated in any way. When used by healthcare professionals, N95 masks should be discarded “after each patient encounter,” per CDC guidelines.

Protect yourself from scams when buying face masks online

Before buying an N95 or KN95 face mask online, double-check that the retailer is selling legitimate products at a reasonable price. Here are a few tips to help you navigate online mask shopping.

Factors that may affect mask and PPE prices

Low supply, rising demands and air cargo shipping costs are all factors that have increased the cost of N95 masks and other personal protective equipment. These factors may also influence shipping costs and delivery speeds. Look for products that ship from the USA for faster delivery times and lower shipping costs.

How can I tell when it’s price gouging or not?

The fluctuating supply and demand of respirator masks and other PPE means that prices will fluctuate, too. Before buying, compare the price of similar items across multiple websites to make sure the price of the item you’re interested in is in line with the general market value. If a nearly identical item is priced much higher on one website than on several similar websites, this could indicate price gouging.

Is it safe to buy face masks on Amazon?

Use caution when buying KN95 and N95 face masks on Amazon, since its products come from third-party sellers and it can be difficult to spot a counterfeit item before you buy. Look for red flags like no customer reviews, highly edited or blurry photos and grammatical errors and typos throughout the product description.

How to make a DIY N95 face mask

While there are countless DIY tutorials to make your own cloth face masks, making your own DIY N95 mask requires a few more steps but can be done. Homemade filtered masks aren’t intended to stand in for medical or professional use, but can offer you more protection than a regular cloth mask.

To make your own filtered mask, you’ll need:

  • 1 MERV13 air filter – you can find these at most hardware stores
  • 1 piece of Spunbond fabric, large enough to cover your nose and mouth
  • 1 pair of disposable shoe guards
  • Citric acid or lemon juice
  • Two elastic bands
  • Glue gun
  • Glue inserts for glue gun
  • 3 pipe cleaners
  • Stapler
  • Old N95 mask (optional)
  • A cup or glass

Instructions:

  1. Remove the cardboard edges from the MERV 13 filter and flatten it out.
  2. Trace the outline of an old N95 face mask onto the MERV 13 filter. If you don’t have an old mask, you can find a template online or freehand the general outline of your mask onto the filter.
  3. Cut the piece out from the MERV 13 filter. This will be the inner layer of the mask.
  4. Label the nose and chin edges.
  5. Trace the same shape onto the piece of Spunbond fabric and cut out. This will be the second layer of the mask.
  6. Cut the elastic pieces off of the shoe guards (you can save them if you want to use them for your elastic ear loops).
  7. Spray both shoe guard fabric pieces with lemon juice or a citric acid solution. This helps to neutralize harmful particles.
  8. Let dry before using.
  9. Trace the same mask shape onto both shoe guards and cut out. This will be the outer mask layer.
  10. Glue the shoe cover layer to the Spunbond fabric layer using a glue gun. Then glue these layers to the bottom MERV 13 filter layer.
  11. Cut the pipe cleaners to size so that they fit along the edge of the nose side of your mask. Line all three next to each other to form a wide nose wire for your mask.
  12. Glue the pipe cleaners down, then glue the second shoe guard layer over top of the pipe cleaners to complete the mask.
  13. Staple one elastic bands on either side of the nose wire. Staple the other elastic band as the chin strap.
  14. Bend the mask down over a cup or glass to give you breathing room.
  15. Adjust the nose wires to your face so that the mask fits snugly and comfortably. Trim away any excess material.

    Several months ago, I found a supplier on your website – Canopusgroup.us and used their website to order N95 masks. I see they are no longer listed on your website. Can you please let me know why they were taken off? Is it because those masks are not legit / effective? If so, I would really like to know so I stop using them!

    Where can I order a black colored N95 disposable respirator with valve and material similar to 3M 8511 mask?

    • Avatarfinder Customer Care
      emilyvillaAugust 5, 2020Staff

      Hi Norm,

      I hope you’re doing well and I do understand the importance of searching for a product that would best suit your needs.

      Generally, in order to look for masks that are similar to what you are looking for, you may click on the blue ‘Shop now’ button on any of the lenders we have on the page. This will securely take you to their website where you can review more details and complete the transaction.

      If you click on the DreamHugs listing on the page, you will find they carry a black “reusable and washable KN95 protective mask”, and also black “disposable 3-ply” face masks, which may be the closest we can find.

      I hope this helps. Should you have further questions or clarifications, please do not hesitate to contact us again.

      Best Regards,
      Ems

    I ordered a set of 10 masks from Cufy from your website and I couldn’t figure out why I hadn’t heard back from them. I was informed today that they did not fill my order because their “fraud protection” service said that I, an 86 year old woman who takes 5 heart meds a day, am a fraud. That my order was a phony and my credit rating is in the 800’s. No more ordering via a secondary website.

      Hi Sandy,

      We’re sorry to hear you had this experience. Unfortunately, right now there are lots of cases of scams and fraud across the country as there is such high demand for legitimate PPE products. Because of the increase in scams, businesses are taking more and more stringent precautions, which includes using fraud software to help detect when an order is suspicious.

      Sometimes since the software is so effective, legitimate orders can get swept up and flagged as fraud in an abundance of caution. This is to protect the customer as much as the business.

      The best course of action is to contact Cufy using the contact information on their website, to ask that the order be submitted and sent. We appreciate you reaching out and we want to make sure you get the order you intended! Please let us know if you have any other questions and we’ll be happy to help.

      All the best,
      Ems

    I cannot wear a mask with ear loops as I wear hearing aids that sit behind my ears. I have read that the KN95 mask comes with ties while the N95 does not. Can you clarify/recommend a model or style of mask that will fit my specific need? Thank you.

      JhezJune 23, 2020Staff

      Hello Susanna,

      Thank you for reaching out to us here at Finder.

      I understand it’s not comfortable having to wear face masks and hearing aids at the same time. Unfortunately, we have no page specifically for KN95 masks with ties behind the back of the head. However, you can see above that cloth fabric face masks have this elastic tie strap. If you want to buy KN95 masks, you can customize it to a DIY KN95 mask by making the tie longer and tie it behind the back of your head. Hope this helps.

      Regards,
      Jhezelyn

      Hi Rocky,

      Thanks for reaching out to Finder.

      The stores featured on the page are the only sellers of KN95 available on Finder. We currently do not have the information if this masks come in a different or single size. If you prefer a mask that come in small, small/medium, medium/large and large – you may want try the N95. You may visit the seller’s official page by pressing the “Order Now” or “Shop Now” button to check if they have a stock for smaller size.

      I hope this helps. Keep safe!

      All the best,
      Faye

We have a reminder on our page advising you to take caution before ordering to protect yourself against price gouging especially for any retailers we’ve listed as “Unverified.” If you see retailers that are price gauging, you may report them directly to your state Attorney General.

    I work in the construction field and due to covid-19, I am unable to find respirator masks. Do you know of any companies that sell to the construction field? I usually purchase the 3M 8271 mask.
    Thank you

    • Avatarfinder Customer Care
      emilyvillaMay 15, 2020Staff

      Hi Jiggs,

      A trusted N95 with a respirator is this 3M model, but you may struggle to find it in stock on trusted marketplaces. Please be wary of scammers and price gouging as you search for products on the web. We don’t have a respirator model available on Finder right now, but we will be working hard to find one. Thank you for writing in and best regards.

      All the best,

    Can you recommend a manufacturer of N95 masks in Southern California?
    I’ve been volunteering with getusppe.org and we’ve had great results with donors.
    I would like to be one of those donors. I’d like to start a match program on my own where I can purchase masks in big quantities and donate them personally.

      Hi Mario,

      Thanks for leaving a comment.

      I’m afraid we do not have a list of N95 manufacturers in Southern California. Also, the online stores listed on this page does not advertise where the masks are made. You may want to search through the FDA page to search for certified face mask manufactures in your states.

      Kind Regards,
      Faye

    I just received KN95 masks from your recommended vendor. From everything I’m reading online, I fear they may be counterfeit. I was going to use them in my dental practice. Should I use them? If not, do I have any legal recourse to get my money back?

    • Avatarfinder Customer Care

      Hello Mike,

      Thanks for contacting Finder and leaving a comment.

      I see you want to know if the masks you ordered from a merchant you saw on our page are legitimate and if you can use them for your dental practice.

      Finder staff has a 10-point compliance checklist that verified partners must go through. These merchants are then marked as “Finder Verified” once they are able to pass the checklist and provide supporting documents regarding their business and products. Finder Verified is a sign to you that our team has vetted a partner as a legitimate reseller of items our readers are interested in. We go the extra step to request samples of verified items to compare against the advertising.

      They are FDA Approved, however, mone of the masks our merchants sell are medical-grade (unless specified on their website). The N95 masks have been made in facilities that are FDA registered, but we are not medical professionals and cannot guarantee that these are all medical-grade.

      As for the refund, should you choose to return the products, we recommend that you read through the details of the Product Disclosure Statements/Terms and Conditions of the merchant for additional information regarding their refund process.

      Hope this helps.

      Feel free to get in touch with us if you have any other questions.

      All the best,
      Mei

    Like others have mentioned, these masks seem to be Chinese made and consumer confidence is low on China products. I have found really great options for masks that are reusable and made in America. Can you list American distributors such as that one so we can all make a better choice considering the amount of frustration from this COVID-19 pandemic?

      Hello Alex,

      Thank you for leaving a comment and contacting Finder today.

      I see you want to check a list of American distributors for reusable masks.

      You may want to check this Finder page on where you can buy made-in-the-USA face masks.
      Please note that not every product available on these websites are necessarily made in the USA. Check the product description before buying to be sure.
      With these, we mean other products of these 3rd party websites, not just masks.

      Any retail partner labeled “Finder Verified” has gone through a 10-point compliance checklist by our staff, where we confirm the retailer’s relevant licenses and certifications to ensure it’s a legitimate seller of these products. Where possible, Finder staff have also placed an order and received a delivery to verify the product and shipping.

      Use caution and research for any retailers we’ve listed as “Unverified,” as you may run into 3rd party sellers on these sites that are not verified. Customers are reporting fraudulent masks, low-quality masks, long delays, or missing shipments altogether. Be careful about buying masks online.

      Feel free to get in touch with us if you have any other questions.

      All the best,
      Mei
