Some experts recommend upgrading to N95 masks to help fight the delta variant – BIC Magazine:

As the CDC has recommended all Americans, regardless of coronavirus vaccination status, return to wearing face coverings in indoor public places to help thwart the spread of the highly contagious delta variant, the mask debate is in the spotlight once again.

But some experts say the recommendations should specify the kind of masks people use.

“Delta is so contagious that when we talk about masks, I don’t think we should just talk about masks,” Scott Gottlieb, former commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration, said during a recent appearance on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”

Gottlieb said specifically we should be talking about high-quality masks such as N95 and KN95 masks.
