Over six months into the COVID-19 pandemic, new safety precautions that may have seemed excessive or overbearing at the beginning of the year are now becoming commonplace. Social distancing, washing your hands 900 times a day and wearing a mask any time you leave home are now the norm. These precautions also bring some consequential issues into play. Despite our new reliance on face masks, they’re not all comfortable or easy to breathe in. This is especially annoying and stressful when running or exercising.

WellWell has compiled a list of seven masks specifically designed for comfort and breathability, which makes them ideal for exercise or just a stroll to the supermarket.
