Mass vaccinations against COVID-19 have been rolling out across North America for many weeks now, so the Covid Status Wear has been introduced as a way for citizens to help communicate their status in a nonverbal way to those around them.
The pins help to make the COVID-19 status of the wearer immediately identifiable in public settings to help put those around them at ease. This is hoped to help break down the sense of fear that has been prevalent over the course of the past year.
President of Covid Status Wear Matt Streem spoke on the new pins saying, "We take pride in being part of the next phase of Covid related products that are helping to ease fear and get people back to living a better life at work and around others. My favorite story is repeated often by consumers, where people say if they had to sit next to a stranger on a plane who was wearing any one of these pins, it would make them feel better and safer.”
