10 Celebrity Idols Who Make a Great Case For Wearing a Mask
Wearing a mask shouldn’t be a political statement. You’d be silly to disregard science in an effort to refuse to follow urging from a politician. When you wear a mask in public (while also social distancing), your chances of acquiring COVID-19 are substantially lowered. That’s a fact. Celebrities know this. That’s why many of them have taken to Instagram and other forms of social media to tell you to wear a mask. Honestly, just do it. One trip to the grocery store with a mask on could save the life of a friend, neighbor, relative, or stranger. It makes sense to us.
