In some states and territories, face masks are either mandatory or strongly recommended. Because of this, face coverings of all sort are in high demand.

Keep on scrolling to see a list of online retailers where you can buy P2, N95 and KN95 face masks online. Knowing the difference between P2, N95 and KN95 face masks can be confusing, however they are all relatively similar, with different countries having their own specifications. For further details on this, read our explanation of the differences here.

Under Victorian regulations, it's mandatory for everyone to wear face masks or coverings in public (face shields don't qualify). Non-compliance can result in a fine of $200. In NSW, face masks are now encouraged, but not mandatory. More details in Finder's complete guide to face mask rules in Australia.

What's the difference between a P2, FFP2, KN95 and N95 face mask?

Depending on your location, different face mask types are more widely used. For example, in the United States and Canada, N95 are common; in Australia and New Zealand you'll see P2 masks more often; in China, KN95 is the standard. Mask manufacturer 3M, which specialises in filtering facepiece respirators (FFR) masks, offers the following explanation of the main differences between each mask type.

When should or shouldn't I use a P2, N95 or KN95 face mask in Australia?

According to the Australian Department of Health and the World Health Organisation, the people who will benefit the most from use of a face mask are those who are already sick and healthcare workers who have close contact with sick people.

Masks are most effective when used in combination with frequent hand washing or use of an alcohol-based hand sanitiser.

You can find out more information on when and how to use masks here on the World Health Organisation's site.

Are P2 masks only good for a single use?

Yes. If you need to use a mask multiple times, most of the sites listed above will sell multi-packs.

Alternatively, you can check out where to bulk buy P2 and N95 masks in the list above if you're in need of multiple masks, say for an essential workplace. 3M also makes mask with replaceable filters.

How long do P2 face masks last?

Generally, a P2 mask works for about 8-10 hours before needing to be replaced as it will become less effective. According to the World Health Organization you should also replace any single-use mask once it gets damp.

      Hello Reju,

      Thank you for contacting Finder.

      I understand you’d like to check a specific website to see if they do have reusable face masks. I tried pulling up the site but just got an error message that says: This site can’t be reached australiafacemasks.com.au’s server IP address could not be found.

      If you are looking for masks or reusable masks that you can buy online, you may check this page. Please know that some sellers will charge prices far above the average, also known as “price gouging”. We encourage consumers to be vigilant about unusually high prices, and compare options before making a purchasing decision.

      Hope this helps. Should you have further questions or clarifications, please do not hesitate to contact us again.

      Best Regards,
      Robyn

      Hi Bon,

      Thanks for leaving a comment.

      You might be referring to the N95 face masks also called P2 or respirator masks are designed to filter out fine particles when fitted properly and airtight. While the KN95 is the equivalent version of this mask in China.

      While the online stores listed on this page does not advertise where the masks are made, please know that it may vary depending on the manufacturer. Masks sold online are made globally by manufacturers from different locations. Where suppliers have specified that they ship from Australia, that means they import the product first into an Australian-based warehouse under local and state regulatory guidelines and standards, and then process shipments from their Australian locations.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind Regards,
      Faye

    Hi, we are an importer of medical supplies of the country. As you may aware the Coronavirus situation is getting serious and may get even fiercer in the wintertime that medical masks would be one of the necessities for the country. Currently, we are selling our masks to the United States and Europe where our masks are FDA and Europe standard complied. Locally, you may see our presence in petrol station chains and pharmacy stores.

    We are seeking an opportunity to add our contact at finder.com.au for advertising our face masks. As such, I am wondering what’s the process to do so? Thanks.

    Regards,
    David
