On Wednesday’s episode of First Coast Connect with Melissa Ross, we discussed possible new CDC recommendations regarding face masks.
Officials at the CDC are considering updating their official recommendation, and advise Americans to wear a cloth mask or some sort of facial covering while in public.
While the general public should not purchase medical masks, as they are already in short supply for health-care workers, a variety of do-it-yourself masks could help reduce the spread of infection.
Dr. Paula Horvath, retired University of North Florida instructor and journalist, shared her story of recovery from the coronavirus. While she is over 65 and has multiple risk factors, after self-isolating for two weeks she is now on the mend. Horvath offered tips to handle isolation as well as encouragement for those who are infected.
