Quebec Premier François Legault showed off a new style of face masks on Monday afternoon.
The “clear window” masks are designed for people with hearing difficulties to read people’s lips easier.
Legault said he met with Rosalie Taillefer-Simard, a Quebecer who was born with hearing problems. The mask’s designer, Jean Airoldi, also joined the photoshoot for what Legault said “allows you to see smiling faces.”

The Quebec website says citizens can wear clear masks in “order to promote communication with hearing-impaired people, people learning the language, and people with intellectual disabilities.”
The government provided a link on how Quebecers can make their own face masks, including ones of the clear window variety.
