    SYDNEY — Japanese artist Takahiro Shibata’s glasses are fogging up because of his face mask — a problem familiar to many spectacles wearers during the coronavirus pandemic. But Shibata has turned the annoying side effect into a one-of-a-kind piece of art. The more his glasses fog up, the hotter and steamier the noodle soup on his “ramen mask” appears to be. Shibata, an animator and artist, initially set out to solve the problem bugging many a spectacles wearer who dons a mask to protect themselves from COVID-19. But once he discovered that was impossible, he decided to have some fun instead. The 3-D ramen mask, made from felt and clay, has everything you’d want in a real bowl of the...

    (CNN)Missouri Republican Gov. Mike Parson isn't that big a fan of mask-wearing."The whole thing is people are going to have to take that responsibility on themselves," he told a local TV station back in July. "I've worn a mask when I've been asked to wear a mask. When there's a requirement to wear a mask, I wear a mask." He added: "Am I going to be perfect about it, no." (On a number of occasions over the summer, Parson shared photos via social media that suggested he was, in fact, not "perfect" about wearing a mask.)Parson also has rejected a push from some within his state to adopt a mask mandate. "You can have the guidelines all day long," he...
    Soon after the pandemic took hold, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) put out a statement recommending that individuals wear face masks as a way to limit transmission. While covering your mouth and nose is a small price to pay for slowing the spread of the virus, people who wear glasses are stuck attempting to see through inevitably foggy lenses. If you are sick and tired of your face mask fogging up your lenses, then you need to check out FogBlock, the simple-to-use, anti-fog solution that aims to keep your vision clear!

This One Does-It-All Face Mask © Vogue The Emmy Awards may have looked a bit different this year, but there was no shortage of glamour. That said, the “come as you are” dress code offered attendees the opportunity to get particularly candid when it came to event prep. For examples, see Yara Shahidi's charming mustached moment, and Jennifer Aniston's self-care-centered look featuring her “other mask.” Aniston took to Instagram ahead of the Emmys to offer a shout to the evening's nominees and winners—she herself nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a...
    When the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19 began spreading throughout the United States, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) called upon Americans to wear face coverings as a way to decrease the transmission of the virus. Over the summer, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the United States’ top infectious disease expert, recommended another measure of protection against the coronavirus: face shields. “You have mucosa in the nose, mucosa in the mouth, but you also have mucosa in the eye,” Fauci said. “Theoretically, you should protect all the mucosal surfaces. So if you have goggles or an eye shield you should use it.” If you are interested in adding another layer of protection to your current face mask, then we recommend...
    Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Dr Robert Redfield claimed that masks offer more certain protection against coronavirus than vaccines will - at least in the immediate future.  'I might say this face mask is more guaranteed to protect me against covid than when I take a vaccine' said Dr Redfield during his Wednesday testimony before a Senate subcommittee.  He pointed out that there is more research to clearly show that masks work to block the spread of infectious particles, while vaccines are still in testing and their true efficacy won't be entirely clear until large groups of people have been dosed.  Dr Redfield's comments came as part of the same testimony in which he and...
    These days, there’s a mask for everything: exercising, going out, people with sensitive ears. If you have a scenario, there’s a mask for it. But one thing I’ve been struggling with is finding masks that are made to help out with the uptick in outdoor dining. Well, Redee came up with an ingenious one that allows you to drink through a straw while still staying covered. It’s a little hard to explain just how this mask works in writing, but here goes nothing. Underneath the “mask” itself, that is the pleated part that covers your nose and mouth, is a U-shaped piece of cotton that acts as a seal around the edges of your mouth and chin. This innovative design...

    There are so many different mask options and iterations on the market, it can be hard to tell which is most effective. Recent research ranked different types of masks. But now there’s another test you can do yourself to see how effective your own mask is. NBC Investigative correspondent Vicky Nguyen discussed a new test that might help determine if your mask is effective. It’s called the candle test. “Scientists say you can check to see how effective your mask or face covering is with a simple trick. Just light a candle and see if you can blow it out while wearing a face covering,” Nguyen said. In a test, Nguyen couldn’t blow out the candle with a two-layered...
    A dedicated aunt from Tacoma, Washington is stressing the importance of wearing masks during the coronavirus pandemic by sporting a custom one that pays homage to her premature twin nephews. Lex and Lochlan O'Malley were born at just 24 weeks gestation in 2017, and spent 15 weeks in the NICU before coming home on oxygen — and they've continued to face health struggles, including chronic lung disease. To help more Americans understand the importance of wearing masks for people like her nephews — who are more vulnerable to the virus — Tennessy Fraumeni had her own powerful mask custom made to show an image of the two as very little babies in the hospital. Statement piece: Tennessy Fraumeni ordered a...

    Just three weeks remain until the school year begins, the first of the so-called new normal, marked by how the previous one ended and by the fear of a second wave of Covid-19. Both the Ministry of Health and the CCAA have prepared -and continue- protocols and measures to ensure safety when returning to the classrooms. However, both teachers and parents agree to express their concern and doubts. Dr. Fernando Simón has assured that the Government and the CCAA have been working for months “very conscientiously” in back to school and “there are procedures and protocols and recommendations on how to act and organize schools and colleges”. Although more meetings will be held to better detail some of the protocols,...
    Marion County Sheriff Billy Woods has instructed employees of his office, in Florida, not to wear masks when they are on duty, barring some exceptions. "This is no longer a debate nor is it up for discussion," he said in an email to employees. Woods noted the mayor of Ocala, which is the largest city in Florida's Marion County, vetoed a mask mandate that was recently passed by the city council. He said the veto is expected to be overruled but that the ordinance exempts government entities, leaving the decision of whether or not to mandate masks to the figure heads. "So, as for us, my order will stand as is when you are on-duty/working as my employee and representing my Office...
    Dr. Anthony Fauci cautioned Americans that a 'difficult time' could overtake the U.S. come fall if the COVID-19 outbreak and flu season strike the country in tandem.  He also called for a 'universal wearing of masks' at schools because it could slow the virus' spread and mitigate infections. Fauci, a White House coronavirus  task force member, made the concerning revelation during ABC News' World News Tonight with anchor David Muir on Monday. According to him, if Americans don't fully embrace donning masks and social distancing, they could be faced with dual outbreaks that could inundate the country. In July, CDC director Dr. Robert Redfield admitted that the convergence of the COVID-19 pandemic and the annual influenza season could become 'one...

    Face mask protesters have made up several silly reasons to oppose the use of the simplest tool possible to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission. Some oppose the idea of being told what to do, suggesting face masks are about complying with the government. They are not. It’s about curbing the spread of the virus. Others claim the use of face masks is actually harmful, claiming they can reduce the flow of oxygen. That’s also false. Again, the use of face covers can reduce the spread of a pathogen, protecting both the person wearing the mask and others. A few weeks ago, a doctor put on six surgical masks at the same time to prove it wouldn’t affect his breathing....
    At the start of the coronavirus pandemic, fashion designer Chelsea Klukas of Lumen Couture was planning to make some standard cloth face masks for friends. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends wearing homemade face coverings to prevent the spread of the virus. Lumen Couture has an entire line of tech-enabled fashion, including dresses, hoodies, and costumes, and Klukas shifted to masks when in-person events were being canceled and sales for other products were slumping. She decided to add the tech to make the face masks a little more fun. “I had the components around, so I put together a quick DIY YouTube tutorial for how to make them,” Klukas said in an interview with The News...
    Cover your nose. Perhaps the biggest mistake that many folks are making with face masks — besides not wearing them in public at all — is pulling the facial coverings down so that the nose is exposed. Amid the ongoing debate over when and where people should wear masks, and the mixed messaging behind that, what’s perhaps been lost in the din is the correct way to put on a mask to actually help prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the first place. The CDC guidelines call for wearing a mask that covers both your nose and your mouth, with the mask secured under your chin. It should fit snugly against your face. There should not be large openings...
    Fox News’ Steve Doocy praised President Donald Trump — who mocked mask-wearing and refused to wear one in public  for months — for advising Americans to wear a mask as the coronavirus pandemic continues. The Fox & Friends host took time on his show to highlight Trump’s tweet of himself wearing a mask and saying “we are United in our effort to defeat the Invisible China Virus, and many people say that it is Patriotic to wear a face mask when you can’t socially distance. There is nobody more Patriotic than me, your favorite President!” We are United in our effort to defeat the Invisible China Virus, and many people say that it is Patriotic to wear a face...

    U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams on Monday implored Americans to wear masks in public, saying that the entire Trump administration, including the president, believes they are one of the most effective tools to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus.    But Adams stopped short of pushing for a nationwide mask mandate, arguing that a federal order would need a "federal enforcement mechanism." He cited the tensions in Portland, Ore., following the deployment of federal law enforcement in the city as a reason why such a mandate could cause problems for local communities attempting to quell the virus's spread.  The comments came as parts of the U.S. experience a sustained surge in coronavirus cases, causing many states to pause reopening plans and...
    Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms (D) on Sunday defended a mandatory mask order, arguing that the requirement is not a political decision but is a necessary measure to mitigate the spread of the coronavirus.  “My responsibility as mayor of Atlanta is to make decisions on behalf of the people of Atlanta that will protect our citizens,” Bottoms said on CBS’s “Face the nation.”  “This is not about politics, this is about people. It’s about the over 3,100 people who have died in this state, 130,000 who have tested positive. I, by the way, along with my husband and children are among the number of people who tested positive,” she added.  #COVID-19 in #Atlanta: “I’ve not actually seen any data...
    As the states prepare for a possible “second wave” of the coronavirus, scientists are racing to fill the need for medical equipment and other novel tools to fight the virus. Durable and effective face masks top that list. In the nick of time, MIT researchers have developed a silicone face mask that can be sterilized and reused up to 100 times. It’s made with two N95-grade breathing filters that can be removed and replaced after each use to be sure viral particles are being eliminated from the environment. If implemented, hospitals would no longer be at the mercy of the highly sought after N95 respirator — much of the supply of which gets made overseas. Plus, the transparent material would...

    What I’ve noticed lately about wearing face masks is that I find myself critiquing every part of it. At first, I just dealt with a mask that only kind of fit my face. I had to tie the elastics and pleat it myself, but it worked, until I had to wear it for longer than taking the dog on a walk around the block. That’s where things got...painful. I knew I needed to find a mask that worked on all levels: comfort, style, and safety. For all-day wear, I knew I could count on my BAGGU mask, because of how comfortable it was. But taking that thing on and off is a little bit of a hassle, something I don’t...
    There are some things that are particularly important in the year that is 2020: hand sanitizer, a recurring grocery delivery time slot, passwords for all the streaming services, a TikTok account, ways to not touch things, face masks, and voting. Cover those last two things with these dope VOTE Double Layer Cloth Masks. Obviously this face mask cannot actually vote for you or get you to the polls or get a mail-in ballot into your hands. But what it can do is help you spread the word about how crucial it is to vote in the upcoming election without spreading your gross germs. These two things—wearing a face mask to help protect others by flattening the curve of COVID-19 infections and voting in elections at all levels—have never been more crucial...
    Now that face masks are the new way of life (at least for the foreseeable future) you might as well consider it a sartorial statement instead of purely a safety precaution. Hey, if a pair of fashion-forward sunnies or glitzy jewelry can make an outfit, so too can a face mask. And just in time for election season, we have found a protective cloth face covering that is safe to use, stylish, and advocates for a good cause.

    Staying home for as long as we possibly can have become our new normal. And if we have to step foot out of the house, the expectation is that we should wear face masks to prevent contracting and spreading coronavirus. It’s no wonder why the market is inundated with an overwhelming variety of face masks, but barely any of them are more genius than the Zippered Face Cover designed by Shut Your Mouth. Just like any other mask, this one does its job in blocking out the harmful pathogens in the environment, covering your nose, mouth, and chin. Then again, unlike other masks, it has a built-in zipper for convenience, allowing you to simply unzip to eat or drink without removing...
    SAN DIEGO —  They brought him the money in a silver metal briefcase and placed it on a picnic table at Miramar Reservoir. Up came the lid: $100,000 in paper-strapped stacks of $50 bills. All those greenbacks beside all that blue water — no wonder Lenin Gutierrez’s eyes got big. “I [have] never seen anything like this except in the movies,” he said. Three weeks ago, the 24-year-old college student was working at a Starbucks in Clairemont when a customer came in without wearing a face mask. He pointed out the coronavirus rules, she left, and then criticized him on Facebook for refusing to serve her. That caught the eye of Matt Cowan, an Irvine marketing and brand strategist, who...

    MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Face masks will be mandatory inside all University of Wisconsin campus buildings statewide under a policy adopted unanimously Thursday by the Board of Regents after interim President Tommy Thompson said there was no way to open safely amid the coronavirus pandemic without the mandate. Thompson, the former Republican governor and U.S. Department of Health Services secretary, strongly advocated for the mandatory mask policy at his first regents meeting since taking the job last week. The policy also encourages the wearing of masks outside while on campus when physical distancing is not possible. “I don’t think you can (open) safely without this mandatory policy,” Thompson said. Thompson said that while some people argue that mandating the wearing...

    As the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread across the United States, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends the use of face coverings to slow transmission. Now, a few months in, you have probably already gotten used to grabbing a face mask on the way out of your front door, adding it to the daily routine of finding your wallet and keys before making your way outside. If you are someone, however, who loves to grab an iced coffee before running errands or who likes to snack on a granola bar while on-the-go, then you have probably encountered the feeling of frustration every time you have to remove your entire mask just to take a sip or a...

    To me, wearing a mask is like wearing a helmet while riding a bike. It’s something you should always do (don’t let anyone tell you otherwise), but you can undeniably feel a little dorky doing it, especially if your helmet isn’t doing you any favors. A stylish face mask isn’t something I thought I’d come across, even though I’ve been searching  for a mask for pretty much every occasion. Whether that’s running, hanging out, or taking trips to the grocery store, pretty much anything I do these days requires a specified mask. And while I have some favorites, I wouldn’t signify any of them as “cool.” That is, until I tried this mask out.  The Sanctuary mask is both fashionable...

The woman, identified as Melissa Rein Lively, can be seen in the store approaching the display of face masks. "Finally," she says, "we meet at the end of the road. I've been looking forward to this s**t all my f***ing life."

    For cyclists who find themselves behind gas-guzzling cars on the motorway or commuting daily in polluted cities, it is becoming increasingly important to wear masks during your journey. It is why face mask designs like the CompressMax Air™ Face Mask + Filter (now $19.99), were ever created in the first place. This face covering goes above and beyond the standard cloth mask. For starters, it features dual respiration valves which can help make breathing comfortable, and reduce heat and moisture build-up within the mask. Additionally, its velcro straps, nose clip, and non-slip ear straps allow you to fit the mask to your individual face so it doesn’t fall or slide off mid-ride or run. Even better is its removable and washable...

    Scientists now say they know the best material for DIY face masks. The coronavirus pandemic has prompted a heated debate over the efficacy of DIY masks made of materials commonly found at home. Now, a new study published in the journal Physics of Fluids on Tuesday claims to have found the optimal homemade mask design. Researchers compared four makeshift face-mask styles, which they considered accessible options for most: a bandanna tied over the nose and mouth; a loosely folded handkerchief; a cone-style commercial mask; and a fitted, sewn mask made of two layers of quilting fabric. Much to the delight of many an American grandmother, the quilt fabric performed best as a protective shield against respiratory droplets. “While there are a...

    One of the most common issues I’ve seen with wearing masks is the pain the elastics can cause on your ears. After wearing a mask for a whole day at the beach, I get it. When I was younger, I couldn’t wear headbands (it was the 90s, people) because I would get bad headaches and now some masks are giving me that same feeling. Sore ears suck! But it doesn’t have to be the case. I found a mask that fits securely without using elastic. It’s pain-free and comfortable to wear, no matter how long. What’s unique about the Baggu mask compared to the other ones piled on my bookshelf is the way it secures. Instead of attempting to tie...
    Coronavirus — The mask is here to stay. At least for now. Spain entered the new normal, but this element of protection is still present in the clothing of citizens. Its use is compulsory in public transport and in those spaces, whether outdoors or closed, where the safety distance of 1.5 meters cannot be kept. However, the Xunta de Galicia has hardened its use. Since this weekend, when it was published in the Official Gazette of Galicia, the Government has introduced modifications and now new rules are established for its use. Hereinafter, the mask will be compulsory in all closed spaces in which it coincides with other people, regardless of whether the 1.5 meter separation can be maintained. Only...
    Coronavirus — The increase in COVID-19 infections in the United States prompted political leaders to ask Trump to wear a mouthpiece in public The rise in the spread of COVID-19 in U.S this Sunday encouraged political leaders to ask the president Donald Trump lead by example and wear a mask in public to encourage its use among the population. With more than 2.5 million cases and 125 thousand 763 deaths, the United States does not give up the first place in the global statistics of patients and deaths due to the pandemic, and has seen how the number of infected as local plans for lack of confidence. This Sunday, the vice president, Mike Pence, traveled to the state...
    Vice President Mike Pence said Sunday the Trump administration is leaving it up to states to decide whether face masks should be mandatory to protect against the coronavirus — while House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said a nation-wide mandate on facial coverings is “long overdue.” Asked about a spike in coronavirus cases across the south — and after Texas Gov. Greg Abbott pleaded with residents to wear masks amid a surge in cases there — Pence said each state is in a “unique situation.” “One of the elements of the genius of America is the principle of federalism, of state and local control. We’ve made it clear that we want to defer to governors. We want to defer to local officials,”...

This handy (pun intended) gadget clips onto your belt buckle, allowing you to slip your hands into it whenever you need to open a door, sign for your credit card purchase, swipe your subway card, etc. Right now, you can get your own Snapback Glove plus...
    A Minneapolis bakery has apologized after a customer wearing a hijab claimed that staff were refusing to serve her because they did not accept her face covering as a mask designed to stop the spread of COVID-19. Zahur Abdiaziz posted a video on Facebook this week saying she had been subjected to a 'corona type' of racism following the incident at Marissa's Bakery in the city.  Video of the encounter started when Abdiaziz filmed herself standing inside the bakery asking the female worker behind the counter why she wouldn't accept her hijab as a face covering.   Minnesota's health department recommends people wear face masks when inside stores to help stop the spread of COVID-19.  Zahur Abdiaziz posted a video...
    If you ask me about my skincare regimen, I will respond, “People have those?” I’m not up to date with all of the terms and uses and applications, and I’m not even sure anything really works. But what I do know is this: it’s nice to feel like I’m at a spa, relaxing and taking care of myself, especially at a time like now. My girlfriend is the one who actually got me into them. It turns out, it’s not half bad to put on a face mask, eat ice cream, watch TV, and when it’s all over, basque in your amazing, rejuvenated skin. And of all the face masks I’ve tried, this one from Kiehl’s is my absolute favorite....
    Americans unwilling to wear face coverings during the coronavirus pandemic are creating fake medical cards in an effort to skirt mask rules across the country. One such card, created by a Facebook group known as the “Freedom to Breathe Agency” (FTBA), is designed to be shown to businesses that attempt to block mask-less patrons from entering. Michael B. Clark/Twitter Complete with a Department of Justice (DOJ) logo, the card alleges that blocking customers for refusing to wear a mask violates federal law. Small print on the card even claims that organizations and businesses can be fined $75,000 for refusing an individual entry and $150,000 for any further instances. In reality, the cards have no legal standing whatsoever. The shoddy fabrication...
    Same trendy item, new garment. Last summer, the dress everyone was suddenly wearing was a shapeless spotted shmatta from Zara which cost $70. This summer, the same pattern is being used to make the summer’s trendiest masks. An Instagram account devoted to sightings of the popular frock is now also documenting instances of the same polka-dot fabric being used to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. “Masks but make it fashion – THE dress for 2019 updated for 2020,” a mask-maker named Lani captions a post of herself wearing the dress and a face covering with the same black-and-white polka-dot pattern. “If we can’t match our lipstick to our outfits, we may as well match our masks right?!” “The...
    FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – A face mask ordinance for all of Tarrant County was announced this morning as the county reached its second-highest daily count of new COVID-19 cases on Wednesday. “In just the last two weeks we have seen a 52% increase in the number of cases in the last two weeks,” said Tarrant County Judge Glen Whitley. The ordinance goes into effect June 26 at 6 p.m. and will run through August 3. Businesses who fail to comply could face a fine of up to $1,000 while individuals will likely be asked to leave. The aim is to reduce the chance of hospitals surging overcapacity should the number of cases continue to spike. “We need your help, we need you...
    FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – A face mask ordinance for all of Tarrant County was announced this morning as the county reached its second-highest daily count of new COVID-19 cases on Wednesday. Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price released a statement on a possible impending ordinance, saying “We have been monitoring COVID-19 closely and we are not happy with the trends we are seeing. We are in close coordination with regional partners and will have an update in morning.” The county reported 460 new cases, bringing its total to 9,846. The county’s highest daily count was 485 on May 10, 2020. However, this was largely due to an outbreak at a federal prison in Fort Worth. Cases throughout Texas have also surged, with...
    Because of quarantine, I’ve probably been working out more. Don’t worry: I’m probably (stress) eating more, too, and maybe that’s why I’ve tried to stay so active. One of my favorite things to do these days is to go running. But, these days, it’s a little more complicated than usual. One of my pet peeves when I’m running is when I run by someone who doesn’t pull a mask over their face. I get it, I do, running with a mask seems like it’d be annoying. Running in general to most is already annoying. But this mask makes being safe while running a lot easier, and more enjoyable for everyone.   I’ve been waiting for an athletic company to make a...
    The Oregon county of Lincoln has exempted non-white people from a new order that requires face coverings be worn in public — to prevent racial profiling. Health officials announced last week residents must wear face coverings in public settings where they may come within six feet from another individual who is not from the same household. But people of color do not have to follow the new rule if they have “heightened concerns about racial profiling and harassment” over wearing the masks, officials said. “No person shall intimidate or harass people who do not comply,” health officials said. With mask requirements becoming more common, activists have raised concerns that the directives could put non-white people in danger. “For many black...
    It’s a whole new kind of antivirus. Apple on Monday announced an update to memoji — its popular program which lets users create custom cartoon avatars of themselves to send to others — which will allow them to put a mask on their virtual personas. Getty Images The iPhone maker during its WWDC developers conference also announced that its new Apple Watch operating system will feature a timer designed to encourage users to wash their hands as thoroughly as possible. The system will automatically recognize when hands are being washed thanks to its built-in microphone and motion sensors, and will vibrate to prompt users to keep on scrubbing if it senses they stop before the CDC-recommended 20 seconds.

    A passenger was removed from an American Airlines flight after he refused to wear a face mask.  Brandon Straka, a Trump supporter and conservative activist, was denied travel on Wednesday as airlines move to enforce stricter safety measures.  The incident is the first of its kind since airlines announced more stringent enforcement of safety measures.  Brandon Straka (pictured), a prominent Trump supporter, was denied travel on Wednesday and removed from an American Airlines flight  American Airlines was among a handful of US airlines who this week moved to take a harder stance on enforcing their policies (File image)  There is no federal mandate requiring passengers to wear face masks on flights, but individual airlines are able to enforce their...

In fact, you should consider these protective accessories the new normal, for now.

    A Pennsylvania Boston Market employee called the police on a customer's 10-year-old autistic child on Wednesday, because he wasn't wearing a coronavirus face mask. Nadina Newsman entered the Jenkintown restaurant location with her son Colin, who in addition to his autism also suffers from Down Syndrome and is non-verbal, according to ABC 6. Newsman said she went to pick up dinner for her family, when her car broke down. She said she donned a mask but, because of the hot weather, allowed her son to go without one. "It was 91 degrees outside, Colin wasn't feeling well, we needed to go inside so Colin could cool off," she told ABC 6. "So I asked her [the employee] if we could sit there for about 15 minutes until...
