Expressing Creativity Through Masks

World wide there has been more than 900,000 deaths to Covid-19. According to the CDC “masks should always worn in public and when around people who don’t live in your household.” With a shortage of masks and boring standard masks not cutting it, the creativity in students was peaking.

Firstly, why do we even need to wear masks? Stated in Harvard Health Publishing, “The coronavirus is thought to spread mainly from person to person. This can happen between people who are in close contact with one another. Droplets that are produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes may land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby, or possibly be inhaled.

Now that it’s very clear the importance of mask wearing. Let’s show off some awesome masks worn by Pottsville students and staff! Click the galley above to view.

Senior Leilani Lespiegle said “I wear my mask to protect myself from Covid-19 as I myself and people in my family are susceptible to it. I also wear it because it has a powerful message on it and i want to influence people that this is a real ongoing situation in the world. It makes me feel like i’m getting the message out there and that i’m doing something right for my community. Others can donate or spread awareness on the situation for the black lives matter movement as the movement is far from being over anytime soon.” If you would like to learn more on the BLM Movement click this link.
