“I always wear a mask when I go outside,” he tweeted. “But something about it was leaving me anxious and unsettled. I thought about the problem, addressed it, and here is the solution.”

The photo showed Martin wearing a blue surgical-style mask, black sunglasses and a large sign fixed to the top of his head that reads “Steve Martin” with a big blue arrow pointing down at his face, ensuring that everyone he sees will know exactly who he is.

The CDC has recommended that all people over the age of 2 should wear a mask in public, since doing so has been shown to dramatically decrease the rate of infection from coronavirus. Dean Blumberg, chief of pediatric infectious diseases at UC Davis Children’s Hospital, told Fox News back in July that wearing masks can also reduce the risk of infection of COVID-19 to the person wearing it by roughly 65 percent.

“We’ve learned more due to research and additional scientific evidence and now we know [that] not only wearing a mask prevents the person wearing the mask to transmit to others, but wearing the mask protects the person who’s wearing it,” he said.

Martin’s tweet immediately went viral, with even many celebrities commenting on it.

“The old ‘arrow-through-the-head’ know-how is finally paying dividends!” late night host Jimmy Kimmel tweeted. Former “Star Trek” star George Takei commented, “I tried this trick, too! But no one believed I was Steve Martin.”

““I’m with (him),” tweeted actor Kevin Bacon. The rapper Ice T said, Ok… @SteveMartinToGo has a solution for those of you who feel wearing a mask is losing a bit of yourself…”

The coronavirus pandemic has infected millions of people all over the globe, and it has destroyed countless lives. Though this is a devastating time, it’s important to still find ways to laugh. God bless Steve Martin for giving us all something to laugh about in such a tough time.
