Penn State Athletics Selling Officially Licensed Face Masks, Coverings
Penn State Athletics is now officially selling Nittany Lions face masks and face coverings on its website.
First up is its two-pack of 100% cotton masks, which contains one blue and one grey covering. Each mask is made with a three-layer design (fancy!) — a filter sandwiched between two cotton “jersey” fabric layers. This pack’s masks are machine washable, unisex, and intended for personal use while out and about amid the pandemic. They are not intended to be a replacement for health care workers’ medical-grade personal protective equipment.
The two-pack will fetch you $19.99 on Athletics’ online store. Although it’s listed as a pre-sale item and will ship “no later than Thursday, August 6,” it’ll hopefully arrive at your door before students, faculty, and staff head back to campus this fall.
Additionally, Penn State is selling a less-traditional face covering featuring a similar Nittany Lions logo. This mask, which will run you $24.99, can be worn as face covering, neck gaiter, sun guard, or hood, can stretch in four directions, and is 100% polyester. Like other models, this is a one-size-fits-all covering that’s machine washable. According to the online store, it’ll ship “no later than Thursday, July 30.”
Last, Athletics is selling a three-pack of WinCraft masks. These coverings, which each feature a different Penn State design, come together for $19.99 and will ship “no later than Thursday, August 13.” They’re made from both polyester and spandex and are machine washable.
Each face mask option currently ships free by using the code “SALE65” during your online checkout.
If you can’t wait until late July and August to get your hands on some Nittany Lions face coverings, Nittany Outlet appears to be selling the same merch (at the same price) on its website.
This fall, Penn State students will be required to wear face masks during classes and around campus, and those who don’t will be referred to the Office of Student Council and potentially subsequently disciplined. Additionally, last week, Governor Tom Wolf ordered Pennsylvanians to wear face coverings in all public spaces statewide.
