Kissing the fingers and tzitzis while wearing a face mask


At the minyan I daven at, face masks are required. With that in mind, during parts of davening like Ashrei and Shema, should one still kiss one’s fingers/tzitzis after touching the shell Yad and shell Rosh if one is wearing a face?


The idea is the gesture that we are showing love for the tzitzis, therefore I wouldn’t be too concerned about the fact that your lips are not actually touching the tzitzis. If you want you can stick them under your mask to kiss them.
