If you're wondering whether making a mask is necessary, the answer is a resounding yes!
"As a member of our community, everything you can do to deter the spread of COVID-19 makes a difference," said Dawn Smith, DNP, RN, system director of Infection Prevention for Baptist Health. "YOU can prevent your loved ones and other members of our community from becoming ill by making masks, as they are in such short supply. Anyone could be carrying this virus unawares, so covering your mouth and nose along with social distancing is essential to stopping the spread."
