As we continue to settle into a new normal across America, guidelines on how to stay safe and slow the spread of COVID-19 remain in place for those venturing into public areas. Per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), one such measure is the use of a cloth face mask to cover the mouth and nose when social distancing is not an option, which can help to block respiratory droplets from becoming airborne—the main way COVID-19 is transmitted, according to the CDC. You won't have to spend a fortune on these coverings, either, since we've rounded up a list of the top places to score them at a discount.

Subscribe to Reviewed's Resources newsletter for tips, tricks and hacks to get through this together.

Although you won't find medical-grade masks or N95 masks here, which should be left for healthcare workers, you will find plenty of savings on reusable, washable options, some of which are even equipped with filter pockets or bendable nose pieces that will give you a better fit (look for these features in our handy callouts at at the bottom of each mask description). Keep in mind that due to hygienic reasons, mask purchases are final sale and cannot be returned. Keep scrolling for 12 stores that are currently offering great deals on cloth face coverings.

Champion face masks are among the most breathable on the market.

If you're looking for a mask to exercise in, this Champion wicking face mask just might do the trick. We found it to be not only easy to breathe in, but also ideal for working out as it helps to wick moisture away from the face (a feature that also makes it great for warmer days). The only catch is that the mask is designed with just one layer of fabric, which makes it slightly less protective than some of the other masks on this list. Once $10, it's currently on sale for $8, but by entering promo code WELPTO5 at checkout, the price drops to just $6.80.

When we tested them out, we enjoyed the fun prints and thought the filter pocket was an added bonus, too, though we did find them to be a bit more stifling than others during active pursuits. Usually, they go for $14.99 for a single mask, but shoppers can currently use promo code SHOPMC15 to save 15% on their order, bringing the total cost down to $12.75.
