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. With this recommendation, everyone wants to know where to buy face masks. We rounded up some options below—from face masks for kids to breathable face masks and more—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 seriously consider, whether you’re protesting or in a city that’s slowly reopening. If you’re unsure of where to buy face masks for yourself or your family, shop the brands below—but be aware that overwhelming demand could result in weeks-long delivery time. In the interim, you can make your own mask out of a pillowcase, dishcloth, or bandana because even a makeshift face cover is a vital step to help protect yourself and your community.
