It is now mandatory to wear a face covering on public transport and in shops in England. Face coverings will be compulsory in more indoor spaces from 8 August including cinemas, museums and places of worship. Full advice on our masks hub here.
Some sellers will charge prices far above the average, also known as “price gouging”. We encourage consumers to compare options before making a purchasing decision.

Running a business can be tough at the best of times, so it makes sense to try and keep your overheads as low as possible. Buying disposable face masks in bulk can help you save money, while still ensuring a safe working environment for your staff. Get the best bulk-buy disposable mask deals below.
Yes – bulk orders are often cheaper per unit than orders of smaller quantities. If you are a business owner, essential worker or are caring for a sick loved one and will need to use disposable surgical masks regularly, buying in bulk can be a cost-effective option.
If you don’t need a large quantity of masks, you can buy N95 respirator masks, cloth masks and surgical masks in smaller quantities as well.
How do I store face masks?
If your face masks arrive individually packaged, do not remove them from their packaging until ready to use. If you’ve received a shipment of bulk masks that are not individually wrapped, store unused masks in a closed, airtight container until ready to use. Thoroughly wash your hands before removing masks from the container to avoid contaminating the entire lot.
Can you reuse disposable masks?
No. Surgical masks are meant to be disposed after one use. For optimal performance, it’s best to properly dispose of the mask after each use and put on a fresh one next time.
How long does a disposable face mask last?
One disposable mask can last an average of eight hours before it needs to be replaced. Replace your mask sooner if it has become ripped or damaged.
What are type 2 face masks?
Type 2 face masks are medical face masks made up of a protective 3 ply material that prevents large particles from reaching the wearer. They are not effective when blood or bodily fluids are present, however. They are usually designed in a pleat style with ear loops or ties.
Will I be fined for not wearing a mask in the UK?
Face masks are enforced on public transport throughout the UK. How much you will be charged for not wearing a mask depends on the region you live in. In England, the British Transport Police charge £100 on the spot if you do not wear a mask. This fine doubles with each offence up to £3,200.
In Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland, travel is forbidden for those not wearing a mask. Police or environmental health officers can also issue a fixed penalty for breaches of these requirements. A first offence is punishable by a penalty of £60 (which doubles for each subsequent offence up to a maximum of £1920).
Who is exempt from wearing face masks?
Those exempt from wearing face masks include:
Children under the age of 11.
People who cannot put on, wear or remove a face covering without experiencing “severe distress”.
Individuals with physical or mental disabilities.
People who communicate with others through lip-reading.
Those who are “travelling to avoid injury, or to escape risk of harm, and do not have a face covering on them”.
Individuals needing to remove their face coverings while taking medication.
You don’t have to carry anything to prove that you don’t need to wear a face mask, but if you want to have something you can show, the UK government has cards you can print or display on your smartphone.
