Be it disposable or reusable, a face mask is your friend in the fight against COVID-19. That's because wearing one keeps you protected from respiratory droplets that may or may not carry it. Together with social distancing and frequent handwashing, this will help you do your part in curbing the virus' lethal spread, especially as cases continue to surge across the country.

Listed here are seven tried and tested medical face masks that are sure to protect you and other people from COVID-19:
