For the most up-to-date news and information about the coronavirus pandemic, visit the WHO website.
Now that states are reopening businesses, officials are recommending or requiring that people wear face masks or cloth coverings when entering businesses. Covering the nose and mouth is part of a nationwide effort to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus, which transmits easily from coughs and sneezes and from droplets in your breath. 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention already recommends wearing a face covering when you're in crowded public places where social distancing isn't possible, like the supermarket. Wearing a nonmedical face mask doesn't exempt you from physical and social distancing. After all, nonmedical masks may not prevent you from acquiring COVID-19, which is why other precautions are so important. You should also continue wearing a face mask even if you've recovered from the virus, since immunity from the disease hasn't been confirmed.





CNET Coronavirus Update



Keep track of the coronavirus pandemic.





If making your own face mask or face covering at home isn't for you, there are some options when it comes to buying a premade, nonmedical face mask, and some things to look for when buying one. We'll keep updating this list as we learn of new stores and sources. 

Here are some options for buying face masks and cloth coverings online.



Help limit the spread of coronavirus by wearing a face mask in crowded public places.

What to look for in a nonmedical face mask you buy
When shopping for masks, look for one that's made from cotton and has a filter pouch -- a thicker material or designs with more layers might trap larger particles you accidentally eject through talking, coughing or sneezing. 

The mask you buy needs to be wide enough to cover your nose and chin, and should be snug enough not to create gaps. A tight fit will help keep out large particles that travel through the air, like from sneezes. For example, medical-grade masks comes in sizes.

Remember to wash the mask before putting it on. You might want to buy multiple masks so that you always have a clean one on hand -- you'll need to wash it whenever you get home after going out in public.

Facebook Marketplace







Angela Lang/CNET If you're able to safely buy a homemade face mask from someone local, then Facebook Marketplace is a good place to find them. Make sure to follow your local guidelines about physical distancing when buying anything. 

This includes standing at least 6 feet apart, so make arrangements to pick up the item from their porch or ask if the buyer can ship the item to help avoid contact. Wear gloves when collecting the mask and wash it immediately. 

Also, if possible, use a mobile payment service to buy the products instead of exchanging cash, which could harbor germs or bring you into close contact with the seller. Some sellers offer a buy button so that you can pay online.

Etsy
