Doctors are now saying we’ll all need to keep wearing face masks for at least another year, and our readers are definitely taking the recommendation seriously. After all, we all know that the novel coronavirus isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. People are loading up on Amazon’s best-selling coronavirus face masks right now while they’re on sale for only $0.50 each, and popular MagiCare KN95 face masks that provide much better protection are a hot ticket item as well. On top of that, Purell hand sanitizer is actually available on Amazon right now for the first time in months, so people are loading up even though prices are inflated.
