As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, for many the dollar cost of trying to stay safe is adding up. Protective masks and COVID tests — though the Biden administration is giving families a limited number for free — cost time to find and money to buy, and we wonder how these and other safety expenses COVID affect you.

How much do you spend on personal protective equipment each month? Have you had to skimp on other expenses to pay for PPE, testing, or other COVID safety expenses? Or is the cost preventing you from protecting yourself as much as you want?
