As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve, an increased emphasis has been put on masks as a way to stop transmission of the virus.
Initially, the focus was on masks and other personal protective equipment (PPE) for medical providers and first responders–to keep them healthy and safe as they cared for others.
More recently, the directive from medical experts has been that we should all wear masks to protect ourselves and others–as the virus can spread silently from asymptomatic people.
While some people are revolting against the mask requirements, others have found a new opportunity to express their creativity. No longer are we limited to the white paper throw-away surgical or N95 masks we see in hospitals. There are now thousands of mask and face covering designs available in a multitude of fabrics and designs.
Choose a mask featuring your favorite sports team, celebrity, or TV show. Order a face covering that reflects your hobbies or interests. Wear a different mask for the day of the week, or get a variety to match your wardrobe.
My current favorite was the one I saw in the supermarket yesterday. A man walked by me with a mask that said, STAY SIX FEET AWAY FROM ME…printed on the mask!
Even in the face of a pandemic, people rise to the occasion with humor and creativity–and the entrepreneurial spirit prevails yet again.
