Practicing social distancing is the best thing you can do to slow the spread of COVID-19, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advises you to wear a cloth face covering in public settings where social distancing measures are difficult to maintain, like protests, grocery stores, and pharmacies—especially with virus cases on the rise in states across the nation. With this recommendation, everyone wants to know where to buy face masks. We rounded up some options below—including face masks for kids, breathable face masks, face masks for glasses, and the best face masks on Amazon and Etsy—and we’ll update this list as companies go in and out of stock.
Cloth face masks don’t guarantee you won’t contract the virus or pass it on, but they’re a public health measure we should all take seriously, whether your city is slowly reopening or experiencing a new wave of cases. If you’re unsure of where to buy face masks for yourself or your family, shop the brands below. While you wait for your order to arrive, you can make your own mask out of a pillowcase, dishcloth, or bandana because even a makeshift mask is a vital step to help protect yourself and your community.
