Stars are urging their followers to keep taking the COVID-19 pandemic seriously in the latest #MaskUp social media challenge.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and his daughter Mariah Kennedy launched the challenge on Monday to inform people about how to stop the spread of the virus and save lives in a pandemic that has already claimed the lives of more than 1 million people across the globe and has been a contentious subject during the election season.

Nominated by Dylan O'Brien, Selena Gomez tweeted, "I #MaskUp to protect myself and others at risk," with a selfie of her wearing her "Vote" mask before tagging her famed songwriting partner Julia Michaels, Steve Martin and Amy Schumer.

O'Brien also nominated Dylan Minnette of Wallows, who showed off his fun seasonal trick to spice up one's PPE. "I wear a mask because it’s proven to save lives and to protect those at risk," he captioned his Twitter selfie of his Halloween-themed mask. "It should NOT be a political statement. you can also make it seasonal and cute."
