With the Centers for Disease Control recommending that all Americans wear a cloth face covering in public to slow the spread of the coronavirus, it may seem impossible to find a mask anywhere online.
But we scoured the Internet and found a few adorable non-surgical face masks still available — many of which include a buy-one-give-one donation to health-care workers. You can also snag a simple bandana or scarf, or try making your own DIY mask at home.
Here are a few of the best face protectors to rock if you must leave your quarantine for essentials. Just don’t forget to wash them before wear.
