Yesterday thousands of Americans died of Covid-19, including a Republican Congressman-elect. Most of those deaths could be prevented if more of us wore masks more routinely.

Now for all us mask wearers, this video may seem redundant, but not only is Nye hilarious, he will also give you a great argument to anyone in your life who goes maskless.

You'll laugh. You'll learn. Enjoy and please share!
