With some states and many businesses requiring masks as they reopen, now is the time to make sure you have enough for your family if you plan to venture out of the house.

While your best bet is to buy some reusable masks so you can continue washing them instead of throwing them away with each use, if you can’t find any in stock or simply prefer one-use masks, Office Depot is currently having a sale on single-use masks.

Regularly $34.99, a 50-count pack of BYD Care 3-ply pleated disposable face masks is now $14.99, including shipping, on OfficeDepot.com. That breaks down to just 30 cents per mask.

These disposable masks are one size and are made for adults. They feature three layers of soft non-woven fabric with elastic ear loops. They also have a nose clip on top of the mask for a snug fit across your nose.

Be aware that masks are selling quickly, so these may be out of stock soon. If they’re no longer available by the time you’re about to order some, keep an eye on Office Depot’s website, as they will likely restock them.

If you’re looking for reusable cloth masks instead, Old Navy has some for adults and children. Their masks come in a pack of five for either adults or children, both for $12.50. While the masks are sold out right now, Old Navy’s website says that they’re still making them and that more will be available soon.

If you’re looking specifically for children’s masks, you can find some from a variety of sellers including Etsy, Gap Kids, Cubcoats and even shopDisney.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advises people to wear masks to help slow the spread of the novel coronavirus, specifically saying that everyone ages 2 and up should “wear cloth face coverings in public settings and when around people who don’t live in your household.”

A new model from the University of Washington’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation says wearing a mask could save 33,000 lives in the United States in just three months.

Experts have also weighed in recently on whether wearing face masks limits your oxygen intake, finding that for most of us without a chronic lung problem, wearing a covering will not be harmful and can help prevent the spread of the virus.
