This Week in Photos: Masks (Oct. 2, 2020)

Masks have become a part of our daily life during the pandemic. They are essential to
our health and safety, but they’ve become more than that to others. They’re fashionable,
political statements and even a reflection of the wearer’s personality. That’s no different
among SUNY Plattsburgh’s students.

History major David Ross wears a reversable mask his grandmother made for him.

“[The pandemic has been] very isolated. Not very good for extroverts,” he said.

“Food is not good,” Ross said about campus life this semester. “Quality of food definitely declined. A lot less people and a lot less crowded.”

Social work major Brooke Cipollone wears a mask decorated with giraffes.

“[The pandemic] has been kind of lonely. Social distancing and staying home puts a damper on things,” she said. “It’s been so strange. There’s not enough people [on campus]. It’s like an apocalypse.”

Biochemistry major Shreshth Kumar wears a mask of the night sky SUNY Plattsburgh provided over the summer.

“[The pandemic] has been interesting. I’ve had some introspection and a bunch of other things so yeah, it’s been helpful I think,” he said.
