#WearaDamnMask: Take it from Lizzo, Naomi Campbell, Tory Burch and more

The verdict is in – masks WORK. It’s all in the numbers, so if we’re going to beat this Covid-19 pandemic, you already know what you should do: #WearADamnMask. While some countries have been faring relatively well with the pandemic, others are failing terribly.

Earlier this week, Tory Burch shared a selfie with a mask on, alongside the hashtag #WearaDamnMask. She stressed the importance of wearing a face mask in public spaces as a simple way to help fight against the spread of Covid-19, the rates of which are still incredibly high in the United States.

I am sure you all are seeing what I am seeing, COVID 19 rates in the USA are rising at a truly scary rate. One thing I know for sure is that there’s a very easy way each of us can help, and that’s to #WearaDamnMask whenever we are in public. #WearaDamnMask because we want to protect ourselves and, even more importantly, we want to protect others #WearaDamnMask because clearly, the doctors and data say we are not going to beat this pandemic unless we each do our part to get rid of it #WearaDamnMask because is it not a political issue, it is an issue of saving lives #WearaDamnMask because it is the only way to keep our most vulnerable safe and the only way to get our economy back on track I challenge @loganlaurice @mindykaling @kerrywashington @bradgoreski @ariannahuff @bagsnob @samiranasr @jasonbolden @gayleking @amygriffin @keeganmichaelkey @drsanjaygupta @perrip08 @jamietisch @marjoriegubelmann @jaredcohen81 to join me in getting this message out by posting a masked selfie and tagging others to do the same. And I invite every single one of you to help spread the word. Will you also post a masked selfie with #WearADamnMask and then tag as many people as you can? (Trust me, it takes a lot for me to post a selfie, this is urgent!) We are all in this together 🧡 Tory xx

I understand masks are inconvenient and uncomfortable. But don’t you feel that it’s worse that businesses are shutting down… jobs are being lost… health care workers are hitting absolute exhaustion. And so many lives have been taken by this virus because we aren’t doing enough. ⠀ ⠀ I really do believe in the basic goodness of people so I know we can all do this 🥰 BUT still, there are many people in our country refusing to take the necessary steps to flatten the curve, and keep each other safe. People seem worried about their “rights being taken away” by being asked to wear a mask. This simple and effective recommendation is being politicized at the expense of peoples’ lives. And it really shouldn’t be a debate 🙏🏼 ⠀ ⠀ If you care about human life, please… just #wearadamnmask 😷 and encourage those around you to do the same ❤️
