  • If you’re on the lookout for a good site where you can buy face masks online to protect you from the novel coronavirus, we’ve got some great recommendations.
  • By now we would hope that everyone knows the CDC recommends that we all wear face coverings anytime we leave our homes.
  • Amazon’s best-selling face masks are by far the most popular option and tens of thousands of our readers have bought them in the past month.

Check out the CDC website and you’ll see the recommendation clear as day: everyone should wear a face mask anytime they go out in order to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus. Of course, that doesn’t mean you should go out and spend $20 or more on a single N95 respirator mask that can’t even be reused. In fact, the CDC says specifically that you should NOT purchase or wear medical-grade masks at all. Healthcare workers and people on the front lines of the fight against COVID-19 are in desperate need of PPE including face masks, so you should never reward opportunistic stores that sell them directly to consumers. In fact, you absolutely should report them.

The bottom line is that 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 Jointown 3-Layer Face Masks, which cost just $0.60 each, and the MagiCare KN95 masks that are $3.45 each when you buy a box of 20. Both options are in stock and ready to ship right now at Amazon, 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.


Head over to this face mask page on Amazon’s site and you’ll find a wide range of face masks that are available right now, including the best-sellers we mentioned above. There’s a good mix of 3-layer masks and various types of cloth face masks, and several of the most popular options are ready to ship soon and will be delivered within a week.
