N95 and KN95 Masks

Mask use is near 100% here in Northern Virginia. I am surprised, however, how many people continue to use simple cloth masks when much better N95s and KN95s (Chinese equivalent to N95s) are widely available. Gold standard appears to be the Respokare N95s which are NIOSH approved (under Innonix) but are quite expensive. I also like these cheaper KN95s from Kingfa which are not NIOSH approved. Some of the Chinese masks are garbage but limited testing by the CDC suggests the Kingfa are pretty good. No guarantees. Use your own judgment.
