A Message from NHF’s Dr. Leonard Valentino: Wear a Mask.

In the past few weeks, we’ve seen a lot of discussion in the media about face coverings. Unfortunately, for some people, the issue of face masks has become political. It shouldn’t be. Wearing a face mask has been shown to reduce the spread of coronavirus. When you wear a mask, you limit your ability to spread the virus. When you wear a mask, you protect your friends, your neighbors, and your community. Reducing the spread of coronavirus should be the goal of every American. We all have a part to play in lessening the impact of this disease that has already claimed the lives of more than 120,000 Americans. One part of that is wearing a mask when in public, especially when indoors where you are unable to practice social distancing.
