Costco Surgical Face Mask, BYD Care Single Use

Over the past few weeks I’ve been seeing Costco have more & more products available to help stop the spread of COVID-19 (aka corona-virus). Costco now has hand sanitizer, face/neck gaiter’s & reusable face masks. I’ve seen most of these products in stock, with a purchase limit. Now they carry these general purpose/surgical masks, also know as, single use face mask (scroll down for photos). These are great to have around because you never know when you might lose your mask or forget to bring one with you. I always leave several in my car for the times I forget my reusable face mask or a friend is in need. The nice thing is the limit is 5, so you can buy up to 250 masks if you’d like. The thing I like about these is they are so comfortable because of how light they are. Just be sure to throw it in the garbage and not on the floor when you are done using it.

Costco Surgical Face Mask

Now I realize that I am using the term “surgical face mask” improperly. Technically, these are not “surgical face masks” because they are not regulated by the FDA. Because they are not regulated they can not be called surgical face masks. If they were actual “surgical face masks” they should be in a hospital setting and not Costco. What you are getting is a very similar mask that will perform the function as intended. These are intended to slow the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) by reducing droplet transmission from person to person. These are meant to help block large-particle droplets, splashes, sprays, or splatter that may contain germs (viruses and bacteria), keeping it from reaching your mouth and nose. You can even see on the box it says “non-sterile”, so these can not be used by health care professionals in a health care setting. Do not let the term non-sterile deter you. These masks are effective for their intended purpose. Here are a few more details about these general purpose masks………

  • 50 Pack or $0.32/each
  • Single Use, General Purpose
  • Soft & Easy to Breathe
  • Non-Sterile – Not to be used in clinical or medical settings
