Back-to-school season is officially in full swing and fall is right around the corner. That means flu season is also on the horizon — and with the COVID-19 pandemic still remaining a looming threat, we need all of the protection that we can get.
Masks are still strongly recommended to be worn in highly populated spaces and indoor areas by the CDC, and children under the age of 12 that haven’t been able to get vaccinated need to stay protected from getting sick. Luckily, Protectly has some of the best PPE selections around for kids and adults — and we have our top picks for you to shop below!
These FDA-Cleared Masks
Respokare Antiviral N95 face masks have been tested over the years and were developed to be highly effective in protecting against a number of different airborne diseases. Revolutionary US-Patented Virax technology provides strong antiviral protection whether inside or outside. These are the only FDA-Cleared Anti-Viral N95 masks on the market. They come in two sizes (Medium & Large) so that you can get the right fit for your face — plus, we love the double-strap design that provides full coverage!
Full line of RespoKare Masks is available for purchase here at Protectly — an official and authorized RespoKare reseller.
These High-Grade Masks
These masks are the most popular N95s in stock with over 400 awesome reviews! Shoppers say that these masks are the “most comfortable ones” that they’ve worn, and they love that they’re made in the USA as well. And most importantly, they say that they feel incredibly well-protected when wearing these face coverings.
KN95 Mask Made in the USA
Made in California, these KN95 masks are made with the highest quality materials available and offer five-layer protection, high droplet resistance and elastic ear straps for a comfy fit. It’s an easy way to avoid breathing contaminated air!
These FDA-Cleared Big Kids Face Masks
With back-to-school season fully underway, masks are incredibly important for kids (and mandated in some states) — especially for those under 12 years of age. These disposable, anti-viral surgical masks are 4-ply and designed for the 5-12 year old range and they’re lightweight. They are the only FDA-Cleared AntiViral Surgical masks for kids on the market. They won’t feel like a burden to wear, which can be a huge issue with young children. They are highly breathable and comfortable for all-day wear.
