Where to buy first class masks online in Hong Kong

If you’re looking to shop industry-standard first class masks, we’ve rounded up the retailers that will ship them right to your door.

Due to recent events, many stores are experiencing a shortage of certain products. Be aware that many retailers may currently be out of stock, have longer shipping times than usual or be charging above-average prices. Remember that stockpiling items isn’t actually necessary right now and that over-buying can leave others vulnerable.

KN95 respirators are particulate-filtering masks that have been performance-standard tested in China. Similar to the P2 mask, KN95 masks are used to filter out around 95% of airborne particulates and are often used to help stop the spread of disease.

With the current outbreak of COVID-19, many people are now looking to invest in filtration masks; however, it is important to know when to use one. According to the World Health Organisation, you only need to wear a mask if you have contracted the virus or are caring for someone who has it.

If you fall into either of these categories, you’ll find a range of KN95 masks available at the following retailers.
