According to reports, the COVID-19 pandemic is not yet ending anytime soon. Coronavirus is here to stay, so we should learn how to live with it. This means that staying at home as much as possible is still a must, as well as social distancing in public places and wearing proper personal protective equipment or PPE.
Face masks and shields are now a must when running errands, getting back to work, or starting/reopening your business. Whatever your purpose may be, here is a list of Instagram shops where you can buy PPE that are fit for your needs.
