With the weather getting cooler* in our Covid-19 world...

*in the Northern Hemisphere, of course

...health experts suggest both cutting back on travel and wearing protective masks. And items from redbubble.com enable you to do both, Carole Lombard style.

When keeping yourself at home, cut back on heating by wearing thicker clothing. Redbubble has a wide range of Lombard-themed sweatshirts and hoodies available at https://www.redbubble.com/shop/?iaCode=u-sweatshirts&query=carole%20lombard.

For example, that Charles Gates Sheldon portrait of Carole above, used on the July 1936 cover of Motion Picture magazine...

...has been adapted onto a zipped hoodie:

This sells for $57.19, and is available in five sizes (small to XXL) and five colors. Order or learn more at https://www.redbubble.com/i/hoodie/Carole-Lombard-Portrait-by-Charles-Gates-Sheldon-Vintage-Old-Masters-Art-Nouveau-Reproduction-by-xzendor7/54268770.BN4XF.

If you're going outside (please limit yourself to essential travel), use a Lombard face mask to both protect yourself and others. Quite a few varieties are available at https://www.redbubble.com/shop/?iaCode=u-mask&query=carole%20lombard&ref=search_box, including a version with the Sheldon portrait:

As was the case with the "No One Man" mask we profiled a few weeks ago (https://carole-and-co.livejournal.com/1133076.html), this is for consumer use, not for medical professionals. A single mask sells for $11.93; buy four or more, and they're $9.54 each. Get all the info at https://www.redbubble.com/i/mask/Carole-Lombard-Portrait-by-Charles-Gates-Sheldon-Vintage-Old-Masters-Art-Nouveau-Reproduction-by-xzendor7/54268770.9G0D8.

And with Covid-19 rates skyrocketing throughout America (though a vaccine is expected to be ready for mass use in ensuing months), Carole -- who as Jane Alice Peters survived a flu pandemic in 1918-1919, probably by wearing a mask -- would want you to stay safe. And so do I.
