Though the pandemic is still top of mind, the upcoming election is starting to turn tides. In a marriage of both important historic moments, vote face masks are the product you should be adding to your carts.
Available from a mix of retailers like Redbubble, Beau Ties of Vermont and more, these masks display messages circulating around the upcoming election and your right to vote. They vary in price from $12 to $15 with a variety of silhouettes and prints to best suit your taste.
Top options are made from soft, dual-layered polyester with elasticated ear straps in addition to designs with carbon activated filters for purified breathing; other masks utilize lightweight “Ice Silk” fabric that sits softly on the skin and offers breathable moisture-wicking capabilities. Plus, they are all washable and wearable for continuous use from now until the election on Tuesday, Nov. 3.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends the use of face masks in public settings and around people who don’t live in one’s household, particularly when other social-distancing measures are tough to maintain. It explained that the virus can spread between people interacting in close proximity — for example, speaking, coughing or sneezing — even if those people aren’t exhibiting symptoms. Robert Redfield, director of the CDC, said on Tuesday that if everyone in the country started wearing a mask now, the virus could get under control in four to eight weeks.
