As the world faces a global pandemic, “Wash your hands and don’t touch your face” has become 2020’s mantra. While staying home and social distancing is highly encourage, governments and health officials now strongly encourage all to wear a mask, bandana, or fabric scarf  for any essential errands. On April 1, Los Angeles mayor Eric Garcetti even recommended wearing a bandana if you don’t have access to medical masks, citing its washability, while the town of Laredo, Texas, went so far as to warn of $1,000 fines for residents caught without protective face garb. NYC quickly adopted a similar fabric face mask mandate.

With a N95 and medical-grade mask shortage, the US Surgeon General also now recommends in lieu of a mask, using a bandana or a fabric scarf.  Ahead are deals on good-looking bandanas and scarves to wear now and when COVID-19 becomes obsolete, you’re set for Coachella (or, the music festival of your choice).
