The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has issued new recommendations for wearing cloth face masks and coverings in public. It’s especially important to wear coronavirus face masks in areas where it’s difficult to social distance, such as the grocery store and pharmacy, and in regions with significant community-based transmission rates. Even while wearing cloth face masks, the CDC still recommends individuals keep a 6-foot distance between themselves and others to avoid transmitting the infection. Even cutting back on the transmission of the cold and flu will help keep people out of healthcare facilities, reducing the overall burden on these institutions.
So where can you buy coronavirus face masks online? Tons of clothing manufacturers have stepped up to create these cloth masks, and there are also lots of reusable cotton masks listed on Amazon (see below). Most of these masks are machine washable, which means they can be used repeatedly.
At this time health officials are not recommending people wear N-95 medical-grade masks, which are in desperately low supply in hospitals and health care facilities nationwide. Rather, everyone should wear cloth face masks, which you can make at home or buy online. These masks won’t protect you from getting COVID-19, but they will protect asymptomatic people from spreading the disease to more vulnerable populations. And since countless people have COVID-19 without realizing it, that’s an important step we should all take immediately.
If your sewing skills leave much to be desired and you want to buy coronavirus face masks online, not to worry — we’ve got you covered (literally). There are plenty of fun, stylish face masks available for sale. Before placing an order, check to see when a particular product is due to be delivered. Many coronavirus face masks are only available for pre-order at this time.
This situation is tough, so we might as well find a little joy by choosing a face mask we like wearing. (Personally, we’re partial to the 6 FEET face mask pictured below). Here are some of the best places to buy coronavirus face masks online.

2. Casetify Reusable Cloth Mask

Their masks are made of breathable cotton material that’s washable and fitted with a filter to keep you and others healthy. Each mask includes multiple layers of protection from pollen, dust, car exhaust and other gunk in the air you’d probably rather not breathe in.

Soon, Disney is making it easy for the whole family to practice good social distancing with a line of Disney-themed face masks. Right now the masks are only available for pre-order, but they come in a variety of designs — although we’re partial to the Star Wars set, which features Baby Yoda. Unfortunately, these masks aren’t set to ship until early July.
15. GS FACE MASK – 6 FEET
We love everything about this coronavirus face mask from GOLDSHEEP Clothing, which normally produces leggings and sweats.

One of our go-to companies for socks is creating face masks during these uncertain and challenging times — turning lemons into protective lemonade. They’re also donating one mask for every cloth mask sold, which is just another reason to buy from them.
They’ve transformed some of their manufacturing capabilities for creating socks to creating masks, and we’re so glad they did. They’ve created a whole line of protective breathable face masks in a variety of fun designs to sport on your next run to TJ’s. We’re personally a fan of this pattern, Jazz Solo, that comes with a 3D chin design, adjustable ear loops and a flexible nose clip for comfort.
