During this COVID-19 pandemic, it’s probably been a little tough to properly show your support the Minnesota Wild. But now, you can represent the Wild in public while practicing safe social distancing at the same time.

In order to keep yourself safe, it’s become imperative to wear a face covering. The CDC has recommended this practice, and it has been proven to help slow the spread of this illness. Per the CDC:

We now know from recent studies that a significant portion of individuals with coronavirus lack symptoms (“asymptomatic”) and that even those who eventually develop symptoms (“pre-symptomatic”) can transmit the virus to others before showing symptoms. This means that the virus can spread between people interacting in close proximity — for example, speaking, coughing, or sneezing — even if those people are not exhibiting symptoms. In light of this new evidence, CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies) especially in areas of significant community-based transmission.

It is critical to emphasize that maintaining 6-feet social distancing remains important to slowing the spread of the virus. CDC is additionally advising the use of simple cloth face coverings to slow the spread of the virus and help people who may have the virus and do not know it from transmitting it to others. Cloth face coverings fashioned from household items or made at home from common materials at low cost can be used as an additional, voluntary public health measure.

With this in mind, why not rock a Minnesota Wild face covering? Our friends over at Fanatics are selling a pack of three face coverings that you can rock while this virus continues to spread. You’ll get to show your love for the Wild, beat “the rona” and look fashionable all at once! With the Wild headed to the playoffs, you can’t not support them somehow, right? Grab yours while you can.

NOTE: The NHL will donate its royalties from the purchase by the vendor to Feeding America (for US sales) and Food Banks Canada (for Canadian sales). The face coverings will ship by July 9.
