N95 masks, also called respirators, must be approved by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). They are tested for a sealed fit and rated to filter out at least 95% of airborne particles. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention maintains a list of approved N95s (see also a summary table). Disposable N95s are vital for use in hospitals and by first responders. Essential workers in crowded settings should be wearing them too, experts say, were there enough to go around.

In the Harvard Business Review, Some of these look like other masks but have a silicone gel seal. Others, called elastomeric N95 respirators (eN95s), are more expensive and much bulkier — you’ll look like an extra from the movie Contagion, but you’ll be well protected.

One important caveat: Some N95 and eN95 products have exhalation valves, which make breathing out easier. These protect you but they do not effectively protect others, should you have the virus (and perhaps not even know it).

Also well worth noting: The United States does not have a lock on helpful mask certification. KF94 from South Korea and FFP2 from Europe are also considered reliable [and] comparable to N95 by many people.

Don’t rely solely on masks

Just as masks should be layered, so should your overall prevention efforts, each of which is imperfect on its own — and made even less perfect with a more contagious coronavirus strain that scientists now say might be more deadly, too. The advice: Mask well, then still avoid crowded indoor spaces, keep as much distance as possible from others, limit your time around other people, and ultimately get a vaccine when it’s your turn.

And if you do head out into the big bad world, remember that no mask is fully effective. Even the best ones filter only 80% to 95% of the virus particles — based on lab tests—but don’t account for human foibles like scratching an itch under the mask or pulling it down to eat or talk.
