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.

N95 face masks, also known as respirator masks, are designed to filter out fine particles from the air. They can protect wearers from things like smoke, dust, fumes and — in some cases — airborne illnesses if properly fitted and airtight.

As of April 14th, the Singaporean government has made it mandatory to wear a face mask when leaving your home to combat the coronavirus outbreak. To enforce this, a fine of $300 will be issued on the spot to first-time offenders and for repeat offenders, higher fines will follow or you could even face the possibility of court prosecution. Protect your health, the health of others and your wallet. Here’s where you can easily order these masks online.

    Are N95 and P2 masks only good for a single use?

    Yes. If you need to use a mask multiple times, most of the sites listed above will sell multi-packs.

    Alternatively, you can check out where to bulk buy P2 and N95 masks if you’re in need of multiple masks, say for an essential workplace. 3M also makes mask with replaceable filters.


    How long do P2 face masks last?

    Generally, a P2 mask works for about 8-10 hours before needing to be replaced as it will become less effective. According to the World Health Organization you should also replace any single-use mask once it gets damp.
