Due to COVID-19, face masks are currently very popular. With nice patterns and colours they can even be a real fashion piece.

The TikZlings also want to look good during the pandemic and ask for your help to create nice looking masks. As a starting point, you can find below a simple tikz path to create a basic mask for the ducks which you can modify which patterns, colours etc. Any other creations are of course also welcome.

Ratatosk found an old gas mask and hopes that this will protect him enough.

Falcons thought that COVID-19 does not impact us because we are flying high in the air.

But today, [this](https://www.google.com/url?q=https://www.ad.nl/binnenland/onderzoek-erasmus-mc-bevestigt-corona-via-lucht-overdraagbaar~a3c0322c/&sa=D&source=hangouts&ust=1588163291741000&usg=AFQjCNG4uwLh_mGglcSGCA2Buezsrox5pQ) was announced.

So yeah, Falcons need to use face-masks as well:
