We never thought we’d be adding face coverings and face masks to our online shopping baskets along with our summer dresses or new running shoes, yet here we are.

From today (15 June 2020), wearing a face mask on public transport to help protect against the coronavirus is compulsory in the UK.

Announced by Grant Shapps, the secretary of state for transport in the UK, today’s date coincides with the reopening of non-essential shops.

This news follows government advice, released last month, that suggested face coverings should be worn in enclosed spaces - including public transport and when visiting some shops.

While you could choose to make your own face covering from home using old fabric, or a T-shirt, many of us will be looking to stock up on ready-made masks online from independent sellers or high street stores.

Mango was one of the first high street brands to create its own range of non-medical, quickly followed by ASOS, Boden, Adidas, Boots are more.

So if, like us, you’re looking to invest in affordable face masks, here are all the high street versions currently available to buy online.
