The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently recommended that fully vaccinated Americans in parts of the country with “substantial or high transmission” of COVID-19 should return to wearing face masks indoors, and in some places such as Los Angeles, wearing masks indoors is again mandatory. The CDC also stated that masks should be required of everyone inside K-12 schools, and cited new data on the highly contagious Delta variant for both of these new guidelines. These updates mean that for many, now is the time to have more protective face masks on hand.

The CDC recommends investing in face masks that have multiple layers of material. For extra protection, a disposable mask underneath a cloth mask is recommended.

Unlike at the beginning of the pandemic, there are plenty of mask options available for purchase online for adults and children alike from AmazonNordstromHome Depot and more, including N95s. And many are available at big discounts. Consider both the disposable and cloth face masks below for the whole family.
