A group of doctors ready with facemasks in place.

Though the CDC initially told citizens not to wear face masks to combat the coronavirus, and to instead leave those masks for health care workers, they are now reversing that mandate. Individuals are encouraged to wear masks any time they leave the house; this has been touted as a noble way to prevent oneself from spreading the virus to others, as we now know the virus is spread quite a bit even by those who don’t show any symptoms at all.

With this in mind, many are wondering for the first time in their lives: where do I go to buy a medical face mask? Read on to find some primary medical face mask selling locations in and around Chicago.
