Physical distancing, washing hands, wearing masks, and…covering yourself in saran wrap?!

Cabin fever has found a new life during the COVID-19 pandemic, and a man in Woodgrove Shopping Centre in Nanaimo is its latest icon.

A man covered in saran wrap and sporting a red pair of underwear on his head as a face mask was confronted by mall security as he walked the halls earlier this week.

Photos of the man that surfaced online on Monday show him also sporting black hiking boots and a leotard.

Witnesses on social media say the man dubbed himself the “COVID Avenger,” apparently as a form of protest against mask-wearing policies.

While health professionals have encouraged the wearing of masks in public to prevent the spread of the disease, no authorities have yet put out statements regarding saran wrap.
