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.

Cloth & Disposable Face Masks
In recent weeks, creators of all kinds have turned their attention to supporting the increasing demand for face masks. For instance, many people are turning to Etsy and Amazon to browse and buy cloth and disposable face masks.
