Mask (Jeffrey)

The Red SG lion is a symbol of the state on the white reusable masks. When the COVID situation escalated in Singapore, it triggered a mad rush for masks causing an overnight shortage. Thus, the Government stepped in and ensured that every citizen had masks.
This reusable cloth mask was softer and easier to breath than the first cloth mask. However, there was still no wire for the nose bridge to hold up the mask. With the introduction of compulsory masks use, the deaf community who depended on lip-reading were once again marginalized… We are all coping behind the mask.
