Where to buy kids face masks in Toronto

Face masks for kids in Toronto are essential for the 2020 back-to-school shopping list. In Ontario, masks will be mandatory for kids in grades 4 and higher. 

Stringent rules around sanitation and how to wear masks properly is sure to put a damper on the usual excitement around the new school year but there are plenty of stores selling comfortable coverings — with some fun prints to boot — to make this new normal a bit more bearable.
