On the Street

If you could design your own face mask, what would you want it to look like?

Emily Rose Simmerer: I like the idea of having a plastic "window" over the mouth for non-English speakers and hard of hearing folks that learn a lot from reading lips. I work in customer service.

Fred DeFord: Mustache and beard so men looked the part, and women could, too. For an equivalent function, chicken wire. Pantyhose, maybe even fishnet stockings.

Derrick Oliver: Clear, so facial expressions could be seen.

Donine Planichek: One that covers the entire face with plastic at the mouth and eyes.

Jaymes Bitner: Nonexistent.

Loryn Nelson: Will not wear one. Thanks anyway though.

Diana Bolch: Alligator teeth or snake fangs...

Jack Grady: [Made] out of screen so you could breathe.

Blainer Blaine: Any of these! [From Latinos en Spokane! Facebook page]

Nora Charles: Invisible.

Jeffrey Albert Brown: If I wear a mask, I'm robbing.

Alicia Davies: An internal fan for air circulation and clear so you could see facial expressions. ♦

Normally, we ask our question of the week of people we randomly encounter on the street. But with the Inland Northwest in lockdown, we instead asked our followers on social media to share their thoughts.
