😷 Face With Medical Mask emoji

😷 meaning - Face With Medical Mask

The face with medical mask emoji shows eyes closed to slits, but with the rest of the face entirely obscured by a medical mask. In the homeland of the emoji – Japan – it is not at all uncommon to see people commuting around towns or cities wearing such masks, to prevent catching communicable diseases. Elsewhere in the world, medical masks are usually only the reserve of medical practitioners in hospital settings, though the meaning of the emoji remains the same: the sender is sick and quite possibly infectious. It can also be used to show a desire to stay healthy and to not get sick, especially if there is an important event coming up where full health is needed!
