Just because McDonald's has gingerly removed that rope around its two remaining tables doesn't mean the COVID-19 pandemic is suddenly over. As public spaces slowly reopen, the issue shifts to protecting yourself outside of your home, and that means face masks, friends.

Plenty of companies are making breathable, stylish face masks with all sorts of nifty features, and we've rounded up some of the best. Think of it as a new fashion accessory that happens to prevent mass death.
