The team tweeted two photos Thursday afternoon of the San Francisco quarterback, one of Garoppolo wearing a mask and another of him playing in his Niners uniform.
The caption with the photos implied if fans can't love Garoppolo with his mask, they don't deserve him during the regular season.

This PSA from the team comes as state leaders encourage Californians to wear a mask out in public during the coronavirus pandemic.
If the Niners' tweet isn't convincing enough, some California cities have begun fining residents for not wearing a mask.
As of 2 p.m. Thursday, California has more than 485,000 cases of COVID-19.
