See this beard?
Yeah, it’s gotta go.
Sean Hibberd is one of 2,500 male paramedics working with Ambulance Victoria who has been asked to shave off their beard — if they own one — to better protect the community.
Why? Well, protective masks don’t fit very well around this…
…and this clean-shaven face — of ambulance community officer Christopher Curry — is far easier to work with.
In the time of the coronavirus outbreak, paramedics need to be able to protect themselves and you from contracting COVID-19, while still helping the community.
Honestly, you’d be surprised how quickly a big-ass beard can go. It’s kind of soothing to watch it just…fall away.
