We’re all going to be wearing masks for a long time. These face masks for socializing will make it easier for attendees to mingle.

We found 3 great face masks for socializing that you might want to offer at your future events—or use yourself.

The ClearMask

55% of communication is visual—yet traditional masks block faces and prevent our ability to see facial expressions and emotions, catch visual cues and communicate. That was the thinking behind the creation of the one-time-use ClearMask.

This transparent mask has full-face visibility through an anti-fogging, see-through protective shield. According to the company’s web site, the ClearMask blocks aerosols, fluids and sprays from our faces and meets ASTM level 3 standards for fluid resistance and flammability. Discounts are available for quantities over 432 masks.

Your Social Mask

Your Social Mask

Your Social Mask was designed so we can all enjoy eating and drinking once again in social settings while being considerate to those around us. This reusable mask gives people the opportunity to socialize with people without taking off their masks and exposing their face or worrying about where to put the mask when it is removed. With a simple Velcro strip, the mask is opened and fastened on the side for access to the mouth for eating and drinking. Straws can also be inserted from the bottom of the mask without it having to be unfastened.

These ultimate face masks for socializing are machine washable and made of three-ply fabric with a non-removable, antibacterial filter layer.

A portion of net profits from purchases of Your Social Mask will be donated to two food-related charities, Restaurant Strong and World Central Kitchen.

Civility

Designed in France, the Civility mask has a youthful design, with a transparent shield on the front made from a lightweight, resistant glass that provides a crystal-clear view of your face. Air filters on each side help deliver air directly to your mouth and nose, while also allowing exhaled air to pass through so that your mask doesn’t fog up. A TPE ring around the mask ensures an air-tight seal that works universally across multiple face-shapes and even on people with beards. A disposable filter system allows you to switch out the filtration sheets every 12 hours (the mask comes with a 1-month pack or a 3-months pack). The two circular valves on each side of the mask unscrew off to reveal the swappable EN 14683 / ASTM F2100-19 standard filters that help trap 98 perent of particles as small as 0.3 microns, according to the Civility web site.

The Civility mask comes in a variety of styles with color combos, options for tinted glass shields, and even patterned face-straps.
