Of course, there are plenty of Duggar fans who are questioning the effectiveness of masks. It seems that some fans feel that the pandemic isn’t real and that masks aren’t needed. But, Jill and Derick seem to believe that wearing masks is the right thing to do, and they want others to do the same to protect those around them.
Is Jill’s family serious about the coronavirus?
As TV Shows Ace reports, Jill and Derick are some of the only family members who appear to be serious about the pandemic. Often, other members of the Duggar family are spending time together without face masks. They are seeing their friends, despite the pandemic. In many of the pictures they are sharing, they are not wearing masks, even when masks are required or recommended. The family even gathered for family night amid the pandemic.
So, Jill is often receiving words of encouragement from her fans because she wears face masks. On the other hand, her family members get lots of hate for not being serious about the pandemic.
