Why are we doing this?
Health experts say that the evidence is clear regarding masks being capable of preventing the spread of COVID-19, thus the more people wear masks the better. Due to the abundance of asymptomatic infection, there’s no way to pinpoint who should wear a mask or not; hence, everyone should wear a mask. Additionally, researchers emphasize that there are two main reasons to wear masks: to protect your own life and to protect the well-being of others. Although there isn’t a significant amount of evidence surrounding the protection of the mask-wearer, there is strong evidence about masks protecting others from catching an infection from a person wearing the mask, since infected people can spread the virus just by talking. Therefore, we highly encourage people who already wear masks to speak up and share their actions on social media. We need more and more people to take pride in wearing masks and to support this cause through actions in effort to bring up enough force to fight COVID-19.
What does it mean?
We all know the best way of fighting COVID-19 is to wear a mask, social distancing at least 6 feet apart, and wash your hands with soap and water or use hand sanitizer constantly. However, it’s more than just rules, we want to shine a different light on these “mandatory” rules to help masks become more relatable and trendy.
How to support it?
Let’s make it a trend/movement by using #WearMaskWhile and showing off those photos/videos on social media of you wearing face masks whether it is hiking outside, your favorite yoga position, or even something as casual as making a grocery run! Help spread the awareness by challenging your friends and family members to do the same! Again, the more people wear masks, the higher the chance the COVID-19 war can end.
