What do we advise our patients?
Please wear a mask.
It is important to help decrease the spread of the virus towards others. It helps to increase your protection from water droplets lingering in the air, whether due to a recently coughing/sneezing person that was in your pathway or another source.
The goal is to lower the risk of transmission and infection. We do understand that it is not 100% preventative. There is always a risk of transmission no matter what.
Remember, there is a high rate of transmission due to cross contamination as well.
For example, touching objects in a store and touching your phone repeatedly, which is touching your face. Do you wash your hands inbetween those moments? Do you clean your phone repeatedly throughout the day when you behave in this way?
Please be mindful of your behavior because it not only effects you but other as well. Follwo CDC guidelines for washing hands and sanitizing the environment you are working in or living in.
Be Safe Everyone. Be Smart. Be Kind.
