Mask fashion in Rutland

With a statewide mandate in place that everyone wear masks in public as of Aug. 1, it is wise to accept this new reality and enjoy the opportunity to make a  fashion statement with this additional accessory.  While disposable blue paper masks will accomplish the same medical purpose, many have made or found creative face coverings to lessen the burden of being masked up. Whether it’s a professional sports team, a message of cancer survival, or a mischievous cat, a colorful mask design can really complete the ensemble! Not only will you look good, but you’ll help curd the spread of Covid. Attendees of Rutland’s Art in the Park summer festival showed off their creativity and style on Aug. 8, and here are a few of our favorites.
