Many cities in the US have begun enforcing mandatory face masks policies – but one Grammy winner is taking no chances.

DJ Khaled, a US-Palestinian record producer and songwriter, this week donned a full hazmat suit for a routine trip to the dentist.

The I'm The One star, 44, wore a face mask, protective coveralls, gloves and shoe covers as he stepped out in Florida.

"Play [with] it if you want. I got kids, I don’t play games," the DJ, born Khaled Mohamed Khaled, captioned a selfie he posted to Instagram. "First day out the crib in three and half months."

The musician, whose Palestinian parents emigrated to the US before his birth, also shared a series of images taken at the dentist, should any of his 20 million followers have wanted to see his procedure.

"My first day out the crib and I had get my root canal taken out, my root canal that had gave me pain over 15 years (sic)," Khaled captioned the gallery.

The star also shared a picture from inside his car as he set off home, his jaw wrapped in gauze.

"Texting Asahd and Aalam Daddy be home soon."

The musician shares two sons, Asahd, 3, and Aalam, five months, with wife Nicole Tuck.

Khaled, who also stars in this year's Bad Boys for Life, isn't the only A-lister to don a hazmat suit during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Supermodel Naomi Campbell, 50, made headlines after she wore a full suit, with goggles, plastic gloves and a face mask, to board a flight in March.

The cover star, who was flying across the US, described her outfit as "safety first next level".

That same month, Erykah Badu made fashion history by customising her hazmat with the Louis Vuitton logo, sparking the rise of what she called “social-distancing couture”.

To receive the Filmmakers and Soundtrack Award at the Texas Film Awards, the singer teamed the suit with over-the-elbow gloves and feather fringed boots.
