You can actually buy non-N95 masks from Amazon.com these days. These are apparently small importers/retailers that buy small volumes from China. I found my sister (who has many underlying health issues) a source the other day. Takes 1-2 weeks for delivery. While they are not N95, they do use PM2.5 filters so I suppose the protection is better than masks made just of cloth.
