Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis were photographed wearing face masks outdoors on Saturday while running an errand in LA’s Studio City.
The longtime actor and his wife, 44 and 38, dressed casually for the outing with their two children, Wyatt Isabelle, seven, and Dimitri, five.
The spouses both wore face masks, Mila in white and Ashton in black, and they held their children’s hands.
They did so even though LA currently has no mask mandates, despite recent moves by some health experts to reintroduce them.
Ashton and Mila are extra COVID-cautious. Last September, they told People they were anxiously awaiting the approval of vaccinations for children.
The couple also stated that they took the COVID measures seriously, knowing that the virus can be passed on even after vaccination.
Ashton explained: “Even if you are vaccinated you can still get COVID and give it to your child and they can still get very sick and close the whole school. Who does this person want to be? No one.’

Los Angeles recently considered reinstating mask mandates, but local communities like Beverly Hills have debated not enforcing the mandate due to a downward trend in Covid cases.
Long Beach and Pasadena have also indicated they will comply with the state’s mask mandate laws, rather than following LA’s plan.
The only major county to increase mask mandates this year was Alameda County, but the mandate was dropped after three weeks due to low infection rates.
LA County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer told a news conference that since July 23 there had been a “fairly steady drop in cases,” adding “the clock is stopped right now.”
Ferrer and city officials decided not to enforce the mandate because case numbers had been declining in recent weeks after Los Angeles entered the “high” category of cases two weeks ago.
The category is defined by the CDC as 10 Covid-related hospital admissions per 100,000 residents, and the number was 11.7 as of last Thursday, so city officials think it’s low enough not to ask residents to wear masks.
“You could see that we are on the threshold between medium and high. It doesn’t take much to get us back to that mid-level community,” Ferrer said.
LA could see mask requirements coming back to schools, and Kutcher and Kunis have two children together, 5-year-old Dimitri Portwood and 7-year-old Wyatt Isabelle.
Kutcher, star of the new film Vengeance, wore a comfortable white crew-neck t-shirt and faded jeans.
He added light gray sneakers to the look and wore a dark baseball cap with a yellow circle on the front.
Mila was dressed in a loose-fitting brown jumpsuit as she held the hand of seven-year-old daughter Wyatt.
Meanwhile, Asthon stayed close to Dimitri, who is five, holding the tot’s hand.

Mila – whose full name is Milena Markovna – wore a sleeveless black shirt under her trendy jumper.
It was tight fitting and she wore a long necklace with a rectangular pendant in the middle.
Her thick, luscious brunette hair was a little tousled as she let it fall over her shoulders in a small parting.
She wore a pair of white sneakers and was holding an iced coffee with a blue straw.

The couple, who met while being cast on That ’70s Show, reprized their roles as Jackie Burkhart and Michael Kelso for the upcoming spin-off That ’90s Show.
This ’70s show aired from 1998 to 2006, and the two actors maintained a friendship during that time.
Years later, they became romantically engaged and tied the knot in 2015 — two years after Kutcher split from ex-wife Demi Moore.

Regarding her return to the characters, Ashton said in a recent interview with Variety, “Mila and I have been thinking about it.
“We were like, ‘Listen, we’re in the position we’re in just because of this show, so let’s just go back and do that. We just came back and had fun for a week. It was so random and fun.’
Speaking to ‘Entertainment Tonight’, he added: “It was super nostalgic and really weird. Going back to the basement, just going back to the set was weird. And then being with everyone is… bizarre.”
The new series will feature guest appearances from Ashton and Mila’s co-stars Topher Grace, Laura Prepon and Wilmer Valderrama, although the main cast will consist of younger actors, led by Callie Haverda as Leia Forman, daughter of Grace and Prepon’s characters.
