There are plenty of cloth mask options – here’s where to find them

On Saturday, Maryland’s mask order goes into effect, meaning residents will be required to wear one at retailers and on public transit.

For those who want a dedicated mask – and not just a scarf thrown over their face – some hunting is in order. We’ve found a number of options, which include Amazon and other companies not known for making masks.

Here’s where you can find one.

NOTE: Due to high demand, shipping and delivery times from sellers could be lengthy. 

Amazon

Amazon still has packs of disposable, surgical-style masks available. A Prime-eligible pack of 50 runs $38.99.

Certain other dust masks and disposable masks are shown as unavailable and “prioritized for hospitals and government agencies.”

Amazon also sells numerous washable cloth face masks and ski masks.

Avocado

The mattress-maker is selling simple cloth masks involving two layers of cotton canvas and tie straps.

A pack of four adult masks is $23. A family pack, which includes four adult masks and four children’s masks, costs $36. Shipping is included.

The company says the masks are being sold at cost.
