More from Business Insider:What is masking?

It’s a term used to describe when someone hides their identity by covering their face or other areas of their body with masks or other equipment.

In a mask, the person’s face is covered by a masking material.

Masking is typically used to conceal one’s identity, and is not intended to make one look suspicious.

Masking is usually used to mask the person, as it helps to protect their identity and prevents their identity from being recognised by others.

In many cases, the mask will cover only the face.

If a person is seen in public, they can also use masks to hide their face, as well as the person they are wearing.

People who use masking can also be seen by others, including law enforcement officers and government officials.

Maskers are often required to wear a mask when they are conducting business.
