This chapter treats the history of wearing medical masks in public, the use of these masks in a carnivalesque fashion and the ascend of perhaps the most sinister version of it, that of the plague doctor, to a symbol of environmental and racial justice during the US “Summer of Racial Reckoning”; a series of protests that co-incited with the governmental covid lockdown. It further elucidates similarities between Venice and New Orleans as cities prone to coastal water hazards such as industrial pollution and erosion.
