There are many places to buy them online, but in which shops can you buy them in the UK? There should be a little storage outside shops where you could pick one up before you enter a place. Also, how much do they cost?

Pharmacies sell them and small supermarkets can have them in stock too (but sell them at a rip-off price).

It’s best to just make one yourself which is both washable and reusable.

I bought one in Poundland ironically for £2! It’s comfy, washable and light to carry and wear.

Places like pharmacies sell them too but at a hefty cost usually as they are the blue medical ones that aren’t meant to be reused (save these for the fantastic NHS and key workers).

Places like hardware stores may like Robert Dyas and Wilkos.

The disposable masks should be free, as they're going in the bin anyway. The masks that are kept and reused should be brought. But, normally I wouldn't want to wear a mask, but it is being made mandatory.

I agree! Or they should be at a very low cost (I.e 5 for £1).
I’m actually exempt due to mental health, sensory and chronic pain conditions but I wear one anyway. It doesn’t take much to protect yourself and others! Whilst I’m outdoors I don’t but when in shops I do!

As I rarely visit Tesco, I never knew that. I mainly shop at Sainsbury's, where they do not sell any.

The Asda near me has a long wait time to enter, so I'm avoiding going there.

The only place I know of where you can make one is Snapfish, but it costs £15 for the mask plus the p&p and I am not paying that much.

Most corner/convenience stores near me have them, 50p for a single use one, £2-3 for a 5 pack or a single washable one.

I thought you weren't meant to use that service anymore?

I custom made mine using the snapfish website.
