It might be time to mask up again

Thanks to the uptick in respiratory illnesses, and the alarming new spread of COVID strains nationwide, a leading infectious disease expert recommends masking up again.

Data collected by the COVID States Project suggests only 26% of Americans reported wearing masks outside of their homes in October. That’s a drop of as many as 50% from 2020 and 2021.

The CDC reports that COVID still accounts for 386 deaths per day in the U.S.

Dr. Diego Hijano at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, says wearing a mask protects people from COVID and the other respiratory viruses that have seen an increase this season, and vaccination is also an important step to be healthy through the season.
