Have Masks Become A Fashion Statement?


Sutton Mills, Writer

Over the past 10 months, COVID-19 has turned masks into a natural,“regular” thing. 

But, with a huge increase in demand comes an increase in variety, with some masks costing upwards of $10-$30! 

Obviously, there are lots of preferences among the public, some preferring small business-made, others just regular surgical masks because they think of it as comfortable.

I honestly don’t understand why huge brands need to be part of the safety regimen when all they are doing is making masks more expensive and less guarded from the virus.

It makes sense that people want to spend their money on lavish things, but people need to know just because the mask cost a lot of money doesn’t mean the mask will be the most durable in quality as a face shield.
