Here’s where to buy N95 and KN95 masks for kids

Today's Parent logo Today's Parent 3 days ago Today's Parent

Scientists have learned a lot about COVID over the past few years, and increasing evidence tells us that the virus is spread through tiny particles that hang in the air. As a result, mask recommendations have evolved. According to the most recent guidelines from the Public Health Agency of Canada, medical masks or respirators (like N95s and KN95s) can be more effective against the spread of COVID-19 than non-medical or cloth masks.

If you’re looking to arm your little ones with the highest level of protection, just keep in mind that fit plays an important part; if a child is constantly fiddling with or adjusting their mask, you may need to try out a few options to find the right brand for your kid. The fit should be snug around their face, with no gaping fabric.

As the omicron variant spreads and more Canadian children return to the classroom, here are our top picks for N95 and KN95 masks for kids, plus a few other respirator options.

(Note: with such high demand, inventory sells out regularly and back orders are common. Please check back frequently for availability. Some websites, like Canada Strong, also have the option to receive an email notification when they’re back in stock.)
