This list was assembled by one of our state partners to help provide a list of known clear mask manufacturers. See the entire collection here: Clear Mask Manufacturers.

Many of you may find that you have need for this type of resource.  I have not vetted these companies, so please do your due diligence before entering into a contract with them.  Many are small businesses trying to satisfy a specific need so may not be able to accommodate very large orders.  If you find that they do not provide what is represented, please let me know.

Thank you for your continuing work as we persevere through COVID!

Be safe and stay healthy,
