Deadpool Minnie Mousemask VS Darth Vadermask!!
I have to wear a surgical face mask during my working day. Before the pandemic, a mask was something we only ever wore if there was an outbreak of seasonal flu, gastro, or coughs and colds, but they have now become standard work issue along with our uniforms.
A 10 hour shift wearing one of these is no fun, but after a while you kind of get used to breathing behind it. The psychological and science benefits of knowing it can help avoid transmission of our dear Covid-19 is welcome.
I thought it would be fun to take a look into my archives and see what non-healthcare mask images I have… you know, the ones that are fun, geeky, Halloween or movie-based…
I had a lot more mask images than I thought 🙂
Below: not a mask I know, but a helmet… this is pretty good protection all the same!
Below: Warning! Beware of American actors stealing surgical masks right from under your feet!
Spidey wouldn’t do that!
Jabba’s henchmen might!
Below: oops! Wrong kind of mask…
Below: from the Star Wars Book of Masks, (Le Livres des Masques. Hachette Jeunesse. 1983. France).
Below: superheroes wear masks!
Warning: best not to use the below mask under any circumstances!!
That’s all for now, folks!
Thank you for avoiding facial-recognition with us 🙂
And now, back to the science…
- If you are healthy, you only need to wear a mask if you are taking care of a person with suspected 2019-nCoV infection.
- Wear a mask if you are coughing or sneezing.
- Masks are effective only when used in combination with frequent hand-cleaning with alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water.
- If you wear a mask, then you must know how to use it and dispose of it properly.
