You’ve seen people doing it.

You might point. A laugh probably follows.

Someone drives by you. They’re all alone in their car. And they’re wearing a face mask.

Pennsylvania Says Stop Wearing Masks Alone in Your Car

wearing a mask alone in the car

Thankfully, the top mask cop in all the land, the Pennsylvania state government, weighed in on this behavior.

While they’ve encouraged its citizens to turn against each other and snitch on mask policy offenders, they’re at least showing a little bit of common sense on wearing masks in the car.

The @PennsylvaniaGov official Twitter feed shared this video with some more helpful mask tips.

As you can see, the state specifically tells you NOT to wear a face mask when you’re driving alone in your car. They don’t tell you why it’s a no-no so we’ll just assume it’s because people that do it look ridiculous.

Speaking of ridiculous, this same video also suggests not taking your mask off until you’re “safely in your car”.

“Safely in your car”? Presumably, they mean “safely in your car” and out of the fresh air where the virus might get you (even though it’s incredibly difficult to contract the virus simply by walking to your car).

Or does the state actually believe this image that got shared really early during the pandemic response?

Well, we can’t win them all. At least the state is getting practical about one aspect of mask wearing.

Driving Alone Wearing a Mask Memes

Even most people who are pretty serious about wearing a mask in public know it’s rather ridiculous to wear one when you’re alone in the car.

That’s why there are some great memes about this very topic.

    Wonder if I should strip my clothing off too? If those big pink orbs can gather on a mask, they certainly are on my garments. UGH

      They kinda look like a Starburst commercial. Please, keep your clothes on. This is a family site.

    We’ve been looking at these paranoid idiots for months now.
    The gestapo at WM the other day asked me if I had a mask…i said “no ma’am, i have an issue with masks”…she said “OK thank you”…all the people around me stared in amazement…walked in and shopped…end of story. No one can ask you anything, its a violation of your HIPPA PRIVACY.

    How then, can a communist loving comrade show their self-righteousness if they can’t drive around showing people they have a mask on?
