Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox are urging their fans and followers to please wear masks to protect others from coronavirus (COVID-19). To drive home the severity of the issue, Aniston posted a PSA to her Instagram using their mutual friend as an example of what COVID-19 actually looks like for an otherwise " perfectly healthy" person.

“This is our friend Kevin. Perfectly healthy, not one underlying health issue. This is Covid. This is real,” Aniston began in the caption of her July 19th Instagram post.

She continued, “We can't be so naive to think we can outrun this...if we want this to end, and we do, right? The one step we can take is PLEASE #wearadamnmask. Just think about those who've already suffered through this horrible virus."

"Do it for your family. And most of all yourself. Covid affects all ages,” Aniston wrote.

Aniston noted that the first photo of Kevin was taken in early April. “Thank god he has almost recovered now,” she wrote and thanked everyone for their prayers.

Cox also posted a PSA to her feed, however, hers was much more lighthearted. She shared a similar photo of herself and Aniston wearing matching blue, tie-dye masks, as well as a video of her dogs passing on the good word of mask-wearing to the public.

Just last week, CDC Director Dr. Robert Redfield said, “Cloth face coverings are one of the most powerful weapons we have to slow and stop the spread of the virus—particularly when used universally within a community setting. All Americans have a responsibility to protect themselves, their families, and their communities.”

Take it from our favorite Friends (and Dr. Redfield): Masks work, so wear them!
