A new wave of COVID-19 infections is developing throughout Australia, including in Canberra and the ACT. As such, you may naturally have a reinvigorated interest in protective measures you can take against the virus.

Though they have fallen by the wayside somewhat in government regulations and general use, health officials and professionals continue to attest to the value of wearing face masks. The practice is still mandatory in several settings in Canberra and the ACT.

Given the increased transmissibility of the Omicron variant, N95 masks are now widely considered to be your best option to protect yourself and your community. The Chinese-manufactured equivalent, KN95 masks, are very similar, but are more breathable thanks to a tent-like design.

To help you get your hands on these useful weapons in the fight against COVID, we've assembled a handy guide to purchasing N95 masks in Canberra and the ACT online.
