For the time being, the CDC recommends that all members of the public in the United States should wear a protective face mask when leaving the house. Now, before you rush out and spend $20 or more on a single N95 respirator mask that can’t even be reused, you should be aware that the CDC is NOT recommending that people wear medical-grade masks. There is still a massive shortage of face masks in hospitals and other healthcare facilities across the country, and you should not reward unscrupulous sellers who are selling precious N95 and surgical masks to the public.

The simple fact of the matter is you don’t need a medical-grade face mask to protect yourself because you don’t spend hours at a time treating coronavirus patients like doctors and nurses do. You’re smart, so when you go out you always make sure to practice social distancing and good hygiene. For those reasons, there is a wide range of face masks that will provide you with more than enough protection while shopping in a supermarket or making other quick essential runs out of your home.

The favorite options right now among our readers are the Jointown Safe Shield Face Mask, which costs just $0.78 each, and the LeadPro 3-Layer Face Mask, which is just $0.80. Boxes of 50 are in stock and ready to ship right now at Amazon from both brands, and they happen to be the best-selling face masks on the retailer’s entire site. If you’re handy, you can also make your own DIY coronavirus face masks quickly and easily using materials you already have lying around your home. If you’d rather just buy face masks and you want some options aside from the best-sellers we just told you about, you’ll find five great places to buy face masks listed below.
