COVID-19 variants don’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon, which means masks will continue to be in the picture for the foreseeable future. According to CDC guidance, masks are still recommended for those aged 2 and older while traveling on a plane, bus, train, or any other form of public transportation, as well as in transportation hubs. And in communities with high rates of COVID, wearing a mask in public places where there are a lot of people is suggested to maximize protection.

So if you’re looking to stock up on some new options, we rounded up masks for every occasion. Like when you’re exercising indoors, when you need a mask you can get dirty, and if your skin is extra-sensitive (hello, maskne). Psst...proof of vaccination and mask mandates may exist in different cities, counties, and states, so always check the rules of the location you're in. Also looking to protect your vaccine card in style? We got you.
