Now that the world is in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic where fear and uncertainty abound, lifting each other’s spirits even in the smallest way can make a huge difference. For Star Wars fans, no character in the franchise has recently brought more joy to the fandom than Baby Yoda, so it’s not surprising to see some face masks in the market decked out with cute images of The Child.

If you prefer minimal or subtle graphic designs, then this black face mask is right up your alley. Featuring a heat-pressed image of a peeking Baby Yoda, this PPE is sure to bring joy to onlookers without being too “out there.”
Since surgical masks and N-95 respirators are reserved for healthcare workers and other medical first responders, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends wearing cloth face coverings just like these in grocery stores, pharmacies, and in other public areas where social distancing measures are difficult to maintain. Though none of these face masks are medical grade, wearing them can still help slow the spread of the virus.
Baby Yoda quickly become an Internet sensation following his debut appearance in the premiere of The Mandalorian last November. Though many TV productions have taken a hit due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Season 2 of the Disney+ series will likely arrive on the streaming service as scheduled. Filming on the show’s sophomore run had been completed in March ― just a couple of weeks before quarantine measures have been implemented.
No exact release date has been announced yet, but Disney confirmed in its earnings report last February that Season 2 will debut sometime in October.
