There is no evidence to support that wearing a face mask will protect you from COVID-19. You should still avoid touching your face, washing your hands frequently for 20 seconds using warm water and soap and practice social distancing.
With the new school year just days away, the search and demand for children’s face masks continue to rise. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), all schools reopening should help prevent the spread of COVID-19 by providing face masks to students, teachers, staff, or visitors who do not have them readily available.
The CDC’s list of recommendations also includes ensuring that students and staff are aware of the correct use of cloth face coverings, including properly wearing a mask over both the nose and mouth and securing the covering around the face.
Although there are plenty of face masks on the market, finding the right face masks to fit your little one can be tricky.
If you’re looking for a reusable mask designed to fit children, we stumbled upon this set of premium reusable kids face mask that has earned more than 3,400 reviews on Amazon.
What is it?
EnerPlex Premium Kids Mask 3-Ply Reusable Face Mask set has become Amazon’s bestselling face mask for kids thanks to it’s wide variety of sizes.

What people are saying
With thousands of customer reviews, these 3-packs of masks have earned a solid 4.5 out of 5 star reviews from Amazon shoppers.
“I have ordered these for my whole family now: Me and my husband, my kid’s ages 7, 12, 14. They fit very well and lay so nice on your face. The sizing chart is accurate and very helpful. Great protection with the three layers. I have learned that it's the fit that matters more than any patterns or colour,” says one five-star reviewer.
“Perfect mask for my high school (age child) to head back to school, fit her perfectly, snug around her face, breathable and comfortable! Glad I waited for the these to come back in stock,” echoes another.
Some reviews have noted that the face masks, especially Youth size (medium) is large enough to fit some adults, so be sure to double check sizing before you order.
“The product arrived fast and seems comfortable,” reads one review. “The strings were way too long so had to tie it for the kids. I ordered the size medium meant for my kids but it actually fits me too. My kids are age 9 and 7 and it seems to fit them good [sic]. They said it was comfortable to wear. I will be ordering more masks.”
Shopping for masks can be difficult, especially for children. However, EnerPlex masks are one of the few brands that offer a range of sizes for both children and adults and are affordable, offering a package of three for only $27.
