Never heard of them. Thanks.

PS just looked, that looks more like it is design for dust. N95 is still the gold standard for viruses and as far as I know of course.

This is the exact one I use, note it says 1860 medical along with N95...As mention, I take chemo pills every day so I have to use these in public during flue season (like food shopping where it is impossible to avoid people coughing etc). I've been doing it for many years with great success.

I'd take a second look at the N99. I vaguely remember something about it being better for germs than the N95.

Whether one decides on the N95, N99, or N100, maybe we should grab them while we can. Hopefully, they are still out there.
