Here’s Where You Can Buy Non-Medical Face Masks Online Right Now

Update, June 24, 2020: Since communities in the United States resume holding public events such as protests and political rallies, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has released new guidelines defining these sorts of gatherings as high risk. In situations where maintaining physical distance is difficult, the CDC says cloth face coverings are “most essential” and should be worn by both event staff and attendees.

Update, May 6, 2020: As stay-at-home orders come to an end and businesses across the U.S. begin to re-open, a number of states are taking the CDC’s recommendation to wear a cloth face-covering in public to the next level by making it a requirement. This is in effect in the following seven states so far: New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Rhode Island, and Hawaii.

Ministers have announced that it will be mandatory to wear facial masks and coverings when using public transport from June 15.

That means if you use trains, tubes, trams, ferries, planes or buses, you must cover your nose and mouth to help contain the spread of coronavirus. Those without an adequate face covering could be refused travel on public transport and may even face a fine.

Many people have already been wearing masks for walks or to shop for groceries, but now it’s official – and there’s more choice than ever.

What’s the difference between medical masks and face coverings?

Not to be mistaken for clinical medical grade face masks (or PPE), which NHS staff and frontline workers still need to stay safe, facial masks and coverings are typically made from cloth and elastic and sometimes feature a removable filter so that you can

⚡️ Read the full article on Motorious

It’s one of only 55 U.S.-spec F50s ever made.

In August, Gooding & Co. will kick off its new platform of online auctions, and it will be swinging for the fences as one of the cars included in this auction is a 1995 Ferrari F50. No estimates have been given as to how much Gooding & Co. is expecting the F50 to sell for, but these Ferraris have been consistently selling for upwards of $2.5 million in recent years including one that sold for $3.2 million range earlier this year.

While the Coronavirus may have shut down this year’s iteration of one of the design world’s favorite events, lovers of the famous Field + Supply Fair should plan to open up their laptops next week, as the beloved event launches its first ever virtual market, which will bring some of the best parts of the event (including meeting makers, listening to music, and, of course, shopping) to your computer screen.

Despite collapsing and closing all their stores, the brands are surviving online after being bought by a mix of trade buyers or indeed rivals. These brave – or perhaps crazy – businesses are hoping that the brand DNA is strong enough to lure shoppers to their respective websites and convince them to spend.

Other than Laura Ashley, which is still trading from stores for now, all of the aforementioned brands have been bought by Boohoo.

The timing is seemingly in their favour, as click-and-collect in shops might become less popular with more people working from home and able to accept deliveries. Plus, with over a quarter of shoppers now planning to spend more online after the lockdown restrictions are lifted, according to Global Data, it is
