Musicians in Masks During COVID-19 Pandemic: Photos

Musicians are often rocking the coolest styles, whether they’re performing or just hanging out with friends. But since the global coronavirus pandemic, they’re accessorizing with something we should all be wearing — a mask.

Though states are now starting to reopen, many artists were already sporting face coverings when shelter-at-home orders were still in place across the nation. From head-to-toe outfits to a simple surgical mask, musicians have shown off their coverings regardless of whether they’re at home or out running errands, encouraging fans to be safe by following health guidelines to help reduce the spread of the virus.

Here are some of the artists who’ve shown off their masks.

Billie Eilish

While showing off the pit bull puppy that she had been fostering but then adopted, the singer-songwriter dressed in all black, including her face mask.
