We're not looking to make money off these masks, but even Costco's surgical masks are unreasonably expensive. Consider the availability of these non-cheapo surgical masks at a cheapo price to be a gesture of our support for a culture shift towards wearing masks in the foreseeable future. Though.. these boxes of 50 masks do count towards the $100 free shipping minimum, so if you're also getting magnets consider which rooms, vehicles, or friends might benefit from having having a box of masks.
These feature elastic ear loops and an iron-core morph strip to conform to your nose for a more secure fit. They are hypoallergenic and contain no glass fibers. These are proper 3-ply surgical masks with the blue hydrophobic outer layer, a melt-blown middle layer to filter dust and particles, and a moisture absorbent non-woven inner layer.
These masks are one size fits all, intended for adults. The mask fabric measures approximately 7 inches wide by 3.5 inches tall. When fully expanded, the middle of the mask measures about 6 inches tall and will hook under your chin and over your nose.
FDA approved, ISO 13485 certified. These masks are not N95 respirators.
Mask Wearing Tips
While most of the air you breath is meant to pass through this surgical mask, these sort of masks are droplet filters that are intended to protect others from you, rather than filter out particles you breath in.
Though you shouldn't need to, if you find yourself in the situation where you must re-use this disposable mask a few times, sterilization between uses with the sun's UV for an hour seems more effective than 80°C heat treating.
Bend the shape strip to fit your nose before you put it on. If you feel a bunch of air blowing towards your eyes, or your glasses are fogging up, you need to adjust the morph strip to better fit your nose.

I have heard that the triple layer is the safest with only the ones that doctors and nurses wear as being better. I have shared them with my family members.
