Jennifer Aniston urges fans to wear masks to flatten virus curve
Jennifer Aniston has urged the public to stay safe during the COVID-19 crisis in the country.
Taking to Instagram, she penned a detailed note urging people to wear masks and wrote: "I understand masks are inconvenient and uncomfortable. But don’t you feel that it’s worse that businesses are shutting down... jobs are being lost... health care workers are hitting absolute exhaustion. And so many lives have been taken by this virus because we aren’t doing enough," the 51-year-old actress wrote.
"I really do believe in the basic goodness of people so I know we can all do this BUT still, there are many people in our country refusing to take the necessary steps to flatten the curve, and keep each other safe. People seem worried about their “rights being taken away” by being asked to wear a mask. This simple and effective recommendation is being politicized at the expense of peoples’ lives. And it really shouldn’t be a debate," she added.
Ending her note on a request, Jen said, "If you care about human life, please... just #wearadamnmask and encourage those around you to do the same."
