The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s current recommendation is that fully vaccinated Americans in parts of the country with “substantial or high transmission” of COVID-19 should wear face masks indoors. And right now, with the number of COVID cases hitting new record highs nationwide, more than 99.5% of all U.S. counties fall into the “substantial or high transmission” tier. 
You can check the community transmission status of your own county at the CDC COVID Data Tracker website.
In some places, such as New York and California, wearing masks indoors is again mandatory. The CDC says, in its most recent update on the omicron variant, that vaccination is the best step the public can take to protect against severe illness and slow the emergence of new variants. But, the agency notes, “masks offer protection against all variants.”
The CDC further recommends face masks that have multiple layers of material. For extra protection, a disposable mask underneath a cloth mask is recommended (double masking). Wash your cloth masks between uses, and be sure to only wear disposable masks once. The CDC recommends against single-layer masks, and masks that do not form a proper leak-free fit over your mouth and nose. For optimal protection, you’ll want to look for an N95 mask, designed to filter at least 95% of all airborne particles. KN95 masks offer a similar level of protection, but be careful when buying — the CDC warns that roughly 60% of KN95 masks being offered for sale are counterfeit.
You can check out our guide to N95 face masks for more information on these masks, including where to purchase them.
There are plenty of face mask options available for purchase online for adults and children alike from Amazon, Nordstrom, Home Depot and more, including N95s. And many are available at big discounts. Here are some mask options you can shop right now.
