I can see the reason why citizens in The Village would go about carrying open umbrellas, the danger of intermittent showers, and where there were no intermittent showers and the sun was shining, they also act as parasols protecting from the sun’s rays. But why citizens are forced to go about wearing tinted face masks that look like welding masks, I don’t know. Not unless once more the tinted visor is protection from ultra violet rays. Is The Village really located in such a hot climate? What other possible reason could there be for the wearing of such tinted visors? But perhaps there is no reason except for visual effect.
Be seeing you
