Face masks are back(ish). They never actually left, but when the Centers of Disease and Control Prevention announced that fully vaccinated people could forgo wearing one in most settings back in May, many put them away and relished in what was potentially the beginning of things going "back to normal." Fast forward three months later and the CDC has yet again adjusted its ever changing COVID-19 guidelines — you still need to wear a face mask indoors, no matter your vaccination status.
As the highly contagious Delta variant continues to surge, masking up may be more important than ever in order to slow the spread of coronavirus. If your face mask stash needs a major revamp, we scoured the internet for some of the most vibrant and stylish options that'll ease the mask burnout and help keep yourself and others safe.
