As the opportunity to go somewhere other than the pharmacy becomes more and more realistic, the time has come to invest in a face mask (if you haven't already). They're selling out fast in stores (many of which still aren't even open), but there are plenty of face masks on Amazon to choose from. Whether you want disposable, bulk, or handmade, they have it.
As the demand for certain products (like toilet paper) has grown, some things have become harder to find (or, harder to find at a reasonable price). Right now, face masks are in demand, so you want to stock up before that demand overwhelms the supply. You also want to make sure the masks you buy are high quality and meet standards set by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). When you're browsing, don't forget to check out the options at Amazon Handmade, which is essentially their version of Etsy. You can find some great masks on the site and take comfort in knowing you're helping out a small shop with your purchase.
No matter which route you go on Amazon, there are some really great masks available that will help you stop the spread of the coronavirus. The most important thing is to find one that works (bonus points if it's cute).
