Durango may never be accused of being the most stylish town, but when it comes to rocking a customized face covering as a way to help slow the spread of the novel coronavirus, we make it look good.
Last week, we put out the call for readers to show us what they’re wearing when they have to venture out for essential errands, and man, did you guys deliver! We’ve seen all kinds of face coverings – from your traditional Western outlaw red bandanna to crazy stripes and antique-truck prints to a nod to Jerry Garcia and the rest of the Grateful Dead.
And while we’re having a little fun, it’s important to remember that there’s a serious side to all of this, and, if you need help finding an appropriate face covering beyond tying a cotton scarf around your mouth and nose, there are tons of websites and videos to be found online. In fact, a quick search for “no-sew bandanna face mask” on YouTube yields more videos than you’ll ever need.
So keep up the good work practicing social distancing and wearing your covering when you must go out.
