Wearing Masks, Social Distancing Significantly Decreases Risk Of COVID-19

With the coronavirus outbreak still in full force, masks have become the normal everyday attire when going in public settings.

According to Dean Blumberg, chief of pediatric infectious diseases at UC Davis Children’s Hospital, wearing a mask can decrease the risk of infection by 65% and social distancing decreases the transmission of the virus by 90%.

While Florida does not have a statewide mask order in place, there are several counties and cities that do have the policy in place.
