The Brief: These memes double as PSA's to remind people to wear face masks when in public to prevent the spread of Coronavirus.
The CDC recommends that people wear cloth face masks or coverings when in public and when they’re with people from outside their household, especially when it’s not possible to practice social distancing. Scientific evidence shows that masks can play an important role in reducing the spread of COVID-19. The following face mask memes serve as reminders to wear a face mask during this global pandemic.
Reese Witherspoon reposted this Legally Blonde-inspired face mask meme on Instagram. Of course, Elle Woods’ mask is pink.
Anne Hathaway reposted this spot-on Devil Wears Prada meme earlier in the month. Très chic.
