The Google Doodle for Tuesday, April 6, advises users to “Wear a Mask. Save Lives.” The search engine’s latest Doodle comes as several states have lifted mask mandates in recent days, including Indiana where the state’s mask requirement will become a “mask advisory” from Tuesday.
The latest Google Doodle states: “Masks are still important. Wear a mask and save lives.
“As COVID-19 continues to impact communities around the world, help stop the spread by following these steps,” the Doodle says, linking out to the latest advice on face coverings from local authorities, including the U.S. Centers for Disease Control.
It also advises: “Learn more here about resources to help you and your communities stay informed and connected, and the latest ways we’re responding,” providing links to different COVID-19 information sources including the latest news on the pandemic as well as COVID-19 vaccines.
Other states where masked mandates were recently lifted include Kansas, where lawmakers overturned Kansas Gov. Laura Kelly’s extension of the state’s mask mandate on April 1.
Mask requirements were also lifted in Arizona and Texas last month.
