Do you want to know why wearing a mask is sexy? I’ll tell you because I just learned why myself today in a meeting with the Governor where he shared these stats with me:
If a COVID CARRIER IS NOT wearing a mask and YOU ARE then the probability of you getting covid is 70%.
If a COVID CARRIER IS wearing a mask and YOU ARE NOT then your probability of getting covid is 5%.
If a COVID CARRIER AND YOU ARE BOTH wearing masks then your probability of getting covid is only 1.5%!
Only 1.5% probability!!! Heck yeah we should all be wearing masks because staying healthy is sexy! And doing your part to help keep others around you healthy is also sexy!! So for any of you who may have been underestimating the impact of a mask – please don’t! Instead…EMBRACE IT!
And given that the need for a mask clearly isn’t going to be going away anytime soon why don’t we all turn our masks into personal fashion statements!? Let’s spruce ’em up! Maybe you could add a little color to it. Maybe even draw some lips on it. Or glue one or two embellishments on it. Go crazy with it and let your creative juices flow! I know I’m going to – which any of you who know me know what that means…I am about to bust out the Bedazzler because this sexy mask ain’t gonna get covered in Swarovski Crystals by itself 🙂
