So are you saying the N95 requirement is a must then? I understand the 95 means 95% effective?

I just have M3 masks, read somewhere they protect about 50%.
There is one thing better then a mask though : train yourself to not touch your face! at all! with anything...unless you just washed your hands with a disinfectant. If you can't do that your expensive mask will become contaminated in no time and looses the little value it has

It's possible to buy ex Swedish Special Forces NBC Kit (uniform lined with carbon), gasmask and decontamination beltkit for under £50, which is just a tenner more than a lot of shops sell N95 masks for.

Besides... Those things are NOT easy to breathe through. You'll feel like your suffocating and if you wear it wrong, there would be no point anyways.
You only need to prevent the virus or a particle carrying the virus from getting in your mouth, nose or eyes. A sergical mask and glasses could very easily stop that.
