Kevin Conroy, who famously voiced Batman/Bruce Wayne on Batman: The Animated Series, is urging everyone to wear masks in order to protect themselves and others from the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

On Twitter, Conroy shared an image of himself sporting a mask while taking a walk outside, “If a mask is good enough for Batman, a mask is good enough for me. Kind of sexy too!” he wrote. “Wear the mask, protect yourself and your neighbors. Please.” Conroy also listed the confirmed COVID-19 cases in the United States from month to month, which were at 558 in March, before jumping to over 400,000 in April and now over 1 million as of May 8.
