You may be seeing a lot of people wearing masks lately and wondering why.
Masks are here to help us. They help prevent the spread of some germs from person to person.
People wear them to keep each other safe and healthy. People like nurses and doctors.
Doctor: “Underneath my mask, I wear a smile.”
Nurse: “My mask helps me take care of you.”
Or your family and friends.
Dad: “We wear masks because we care about you.”
Think of your mask like a superhero cape. It helps you save others from getting sick by protecting them from the spread of some germs and viruses.
Animals protect themselves, too, like a porcupine with its sharp quills or a turtle with its hard shell.
So remember, masks are here to help us. If we all wear them, we can stay safe and healthy.
