Face mask mandates are returning in some parts of the country.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently recommended that fully vaccinated Americans in parts of the country with “substantial or high transmission” of COVID-19 should return to wearing face masks indoors, and in some places such as Los Angeles, wearing masks indoors is again mandatory. The CDC also stated that teachers should mask up and kids’ face masks should be required of students inside K-12 schools, and cited new data on the highly contagious Delta variant for both of these new 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). And be sure to only wear disposable masks once.

Unlike at the beginning of the pandemic, there are plenty of face mask options available for purchase online for adults and children alike from Amazon, Nordstrom, Home Depot and more, including N95s. And many are available at big discounts. Here are some mask options you can shop right now.
