Where To Buy Face Masks For Your Family

On May 1, San Diego County announced that face masks will now be required in public to slow the spread of COVID-19. Wearing a face mask isn’t a foolproof way to avoid CoronaVirus, but it does help reduce the risk of transmission by creating a barrier between air-borne particles that result from speaking, coughing, and sneezing. When combined  with Centers For Disease Control and Prevention recommendations, such as washing your hands and social distancing, face masks are one more way to support healthier communities for everyone.

If you’re wondering where to buy face masks for your family, we hope you find the variety of options below helpful.

Cloth & Disposable Face Masks
