With the Mask Mandate in place for Livingston County, KCHI spoke with Hedrick Medical Center’s Medical Director, Dr. Greg Miller. We continue that conversation with Dr. Miller who says masks are an important tool in the fight to control COVID-19. He says some masks will protect others from you, while others will protect you from others.
Dr Miller says as important as wearing a mask is, we need to keep them clean and change them.
There are some people who feel they are not worried about catching COVID-19 and don’t want to wear a mask. To this Dr. Miller says we need to think of others, not just ourselves.
Dr. Miller says the increased wearing of a mask seems to be having an effect; he will talk about that in our next segment.
