Need a Cloth Face Mask? Here's Where to Buy Them Right Now
Many retailers now stock the new essentials.
Just as individuals have made efforts to help stop the spread of coronavirus through social distancing, working from home, and proper hand-washing, retailers have pivoted their resources to produce essentials that are currently in demand.

On April 3, the CDC began recommending people (even those who don’t feel sick) wear cloth face masks when they must be around others in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19. While you can sew your own reusable face mask if you have the resources and skills to do so, you can also order non-medical cloth coverings online thanks to a few innovative retailers.
If you’re wondering where to find cloth face masks in stock, the good news is, you can now get them everywhere from personalized Etsy shops to large retailers like Reformation and Onzie. Keep scrolling to discover 33 brands that have added cloth face masks to their offerings.
It should come as no surprise that many crafty Etsy shop owners are using their skills to sew cloth face masks.
