Practicing social distancing and staying home is the best thing you can do to slow the spread of COVID-19, but if you do have to leave the house, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advises you to cover your face beforehand. With this new recommendation, everyone is rushing to find out where to buy face masks, so we rounded up some options below—and we’ll update this list as companies go in and out of stock.
Asymptomatic carriers can unknowingly pass on the virus in public places like grocery stores and pharmacies, so if you haven’t acquired a cloth mask yet, now is the time—and brands are stepping up to produce them for citizens, essential workers, and medical professionals.
It’s important to note that cloth masks are not a viable replacement for N95 respirators or surgical masks, and any nonmedical worker in possession of medical-grade masks should consider donating them to a local hospital to help those on the front lines. Cloth face masks don’t guarantee you won’t contract the virus or pass it on, but they’re a public health measure we should all seriously consider—if your area hasn’t already required it whenever social distancing is not possible. If you’re unsure of where to buy face masks for yourself or your family, shop the brands below—but be aware that overwhelming demand could result in weeks-long delivery time. It is a vital step to help protect yourself and your community.
Healthcare workers — who are on the frontlines battling the virus — are finding that there is not enough personal protective equipment (PPE) to keep them safe. In a medical setting, surgical masks and N95 respirators are only meant for a one-time use. However, given the situation, many hospitals and urgent care centers are asking their doctors, nurses, and aids to wear the same mask for days (sometimes weeks) at a time.
This is why the Surgeon General Jerome M. Adams has urged the general public to stop buying PPE. While the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states that N95’s are the most effective in protecting those treating infected patients, there are other strategies others can take to keep themselves safe when they are going out on that important pharmacy or grocery run.
Should I be wearing a face mask outside?
The CDC now recommends that non-healthcare workers wear fabric face coverings when they go out in public. These coverings may include cloth masks or scarves. According to the CDC, the corona virus spreads between people interacting within a close proximity to each other. The virus travels in small respiratory liquid droplets that we exhale when we are talking, sneezing, and coughing. Many people who have the virus and are asymptomatic can spread COVID-19 unconsciously while they are out making their errands.
To prevent that, properly made cloth masks can catch the droplets that we spray unknowingly, according to Jeremy Howard, a Distinguished Research Scientist and medical data analyst at the University of San Francisco. “It does appear a mask would stop the transmission of the virus and protect others,” says Howard.
A cloth mask can also help protect you by reducing the amount of the virus you get exposed to. Thismay reduce the severity of the infection.
“Exposure to a high dose of the virus not only makes your chance of infection higher, it increases your chances of potentially deadlier symptoms,” says Howard.
That being said, it’s important to wear coverage without holes.
Can I buy a fabric face mask?
If you’re not in the mood for crafts, there are many manufacturers and sites are selling their own brand of masks online. As you are clicking through the web, be aware that there are currently no specific guidelines or regulations that say a brand is CDC-approved to be effective against the coronavirus. Still, the fiber scientists in the Good Housekeeping Institute’s Textiles Lab say there are important factors you can look out for when browsing:
- If the masks are made out of fabric, make sure it’s 100% woven cotton
- If you want extra protection, it should have a non-woven interface to filter contaminants, and something to help it fit better around the nose (like a metal piece on the inside)
- Make sure it’s machine washable for reuse
- Make sure it’s readily available. Some suppliers are very delayed on deliveries right now
- You can look for a company that’s donating towards a cause that’s important to you
New York governor Andrew Cuomo issued an executive order on Wednesday requiring all people to wear masks or cloth face coverings in public. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also recommends everyone wear a face mask to go out. However, medical-grade face masks are out of stock everywhere as the supply is redirected to hospitals.
In the absence of medical-grade face masks, officials are telling people to make cloth masks at home — a difficult task for those without sewing skills or equipment.
Cloth masks may not be especially effective at protecting the wearer, especially compared with medical-grade N95 respirators. But they’re often key to protecting others. Cloth masks made from materials with a thick weave can help catch droplets from coughs and sneezes, preventing those droplets from infecting others. They can also remind the wearer not to touch their face.
When you shop for masks online, be wary of claims by sellers that their masks protect against airborne coronavirus particles. They most likely don’t.
