Where to buy face masks online after CDC updates COVID Delta variant guidelines

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommended in late July that fully vaccinated Americans in parts of the country with "substantial or high transmission" of COVID-19 should return to wearing face masks indoors. In some places throughout the country, such as Los Angeles, wearing masks indoors is again mandatory. The CDC also stated that teachers should mask up and face masks should be required of students inside K-12 schools, citing new data on the highly contagious Delta variant for both of these guidelines.

The CDC further recommends face masks that have multiple layers of material. For extra protection, a disposable mask underneath a cloth mask is recommended (double masking). Wash your cloth masks between uses, and be sure to only wear disposable masks once.

Though demand for face masks is rapidly increasing, unlike at the beginning of the pandemic, there are plenty of face mask options still available for purchase online for adults and children alike from AmazonNordstrom, Home Depot and more, including N95s. And many are available at big discounts. Here are some mask options you can shop right now.
