This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
Did I first think of this idea months ago? Yes. Would it have been easy to do back then? Oh, yes. Am I lazy? Yes, indeed! Anyway, since we're still wearing them here in the US at least, I figure I'm not too late -- here are some face masks for Sims in 11 simple recolors of boblishman's original Surgical Mask (mesh not included). And unlike half the people I see in real life *grumble grumble*, all Sims who wear these are guaranteed to cover their noses properly. (To an extent: these can clip depending on facial structure, so if you find a nose or a chin poking through, you'll have to tweak the face to fit the mesh.)

These are for YA, Adult, and Elder for both sexes and can be found under Glasses/Accessories. They are enabled for everyday, formal, activewear, outerwear, and maternity. I should note that there is a conversion of this mesh out there for all ages, but a) I would have to explicitly request permission to recolor it and b) I think the creator prefers derivations of their work to stay on their site, so for now just keep your younger Sims on their home lots. I've seen no virtual learning mods yet, but if you want homeschooling, check Simlogical.

Please be aware that these are not functional and will not prevent a Sim from getting sick in-game, unlike in real life where face masks worn properly have shown to significantly reduce airborne disease transmission.
