Here’s where you can buy N95 and KN95 masks online and in stores.
You can choose between an N95 or a KN95 mask if you want a little more “oompf” in your mask.

N95 masks labeled “surgical” are recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), though disposable masks are also available.
KN95 masks—which, keep in mind, are regulated by the Chinese government—are looser-fitting than N95 masks and are the “most widely available respirators that meet an international standard,” according to the CDC. However, there are a lot of counterfeit KN95s out there, so be cautious.

The above masks are typically available in-store at Walmart and CVS.
