This means places such as public transport and in some stores, spaces where social distancing is not entirely possible.
Face masks, hygiene masks, dust visors, face covers … however you want to refer to them, are available just about everywhere right now.

You should be wary of delivery times though, as some items indicate they will take weeks to come, but others are available on Prime delivery and will arrive within a week.
