One medical supply store in Eugene says they’ve been selling the N95 and KN95 masks since the beginning of the pandemic, but now sales are doubling.
“Our sales have increased this week," said Tammy Imler, Office Manager at King Medical Supply. “Just with the new variant coming out, I would say our sales have doubled this week.”
Imler says the store is selling the masks on a first come first serve basis, but may change that to a limited basis if they can’t keep them in stock.
