One North Carolina mother didn't have a mask to go grocery shopping, so she improvised. Kelly Hogan Painter of Stallings, NC put on a Buzz Lightyear space helmet to protect herself and others.
In a video showing off her equipment, Painter said, “so when your husband bets you…. Well first he tells you that you can’t go to the store without a mask, and then you tell him that it was recommended and not necessary, and then he tells you you can’t go get food for your kids because we have no masks in the house…. So you supply the mask,” says Painter, pushing the button to lower the helmet’s face mask. “I’m going in.”
She pressed a button and the plastic shield covered her head. She was stopped by at least one person who asked to take a picture.
