Show your hometown pride and #slowthespread with these Sacramento-themed masks

With the coronavirus spiking in California, your citizenly duties (and statewide mask mandate) require you to wear a face covering. Here are some 916-themed masks that'll help you cover up—and stay safe—in capital fashion.

Sacramento Kings

You can show your team spirit with over a dozen branded polyester or cotton face coverings, which are available now on the Kings team both online and at the Downtown Commons store, which is reopening today (hours and days of operation: 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursdays through Sundays). The designs include a graffiti-style “Kings” banner emblazoned across the front, a gray camo motif featuring a roaring lion’s head and a suitably regal variation with the team's basketball logo. All proceeds from mask purchases will benefit hunger-relief organizations through the All In Challenge Foundation. $14.99 for a single mask; $19.99-$29.99 for multipacks.

The People of Sacramento

While shopping online or scoring yours from TPOS’s Ice Blocks storefront, you can also pick up the limited-edition “Stay Home Sacramento” T-shirt ($25-$45). For curbside pickup, email the request to or DM them on Instagram. $12. 1715 R Street.

Sacramento Republic FC

For the winter months, or in the event that fans can show up to watch brisk fall games, check out the gaiter scarf, which will cover you with the team crest from nose to collarbone. $13 for gaiter scarf; $25 for mask three-pack.
