First off you can't just run down to most hardware stores and pick up a box of N95 masks. Most don't carry them. There's no reason really why
they'd need to carry them when they have respirators etc for sale. The N95 was designed for healthcare workers ie easy to use, cost effective, etc.
it's not something to be used if your going in to clean up absestos or painting an automobile with toxic substances. There are better choices and
not necessarily because the N95 is inferior. And second there is a huge difference between a surgical mask and an N95!!!!!!! One does absolutely
nothing against airborne diseases like TB and Flu , the other is exactly what it's designed for!!! And yes having a box of N95 or 100 masks laying
around is a good idea.
