7 Places to Buy Cloth Face Masks
As stay-at-home restrictions are lifted, the CDC continues to recommend wearing cloth face coverings to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Because of this recommendation, some businesses now require customers to wear masks. Crafty folks may have already put together their own DIY masks, but if you don’t have a magical touch with fabric, you can also buy a reusable cloth mask.
More and more companies are selling face masks to accommodate different tastes. Due to the overwhelming demand, there may be shipping delays, so you may need to keep using your DIY mask for the time being.
