Who ever thought we would see the day when wearing a face mask would be the norm. But, here we are being advised to do so in indoor public places and crowded outdoor spaces.

Since the general public is being asked to save surgical and N95 masks for health care workers and at-risk individuals, the Cotton Face Mask is likely the most popular type being sought out for everyone else.

Cotton is light, soft and breathable and it’s been deemed acceptable material for face masks. These masks are easy to make but for those who don’t have the time or craftsmanship to make their own, they can be bought almost everywhere nowadays. Department stores, clothing stores, sporting goods stores and any other store that sells a wide range of items will likely have a selection of these masks in every color and design imaginable.
