Keeping Masks on in Schools

Masks are still an incredibly important tool in the fight against COVID-19. But protests, politics, and overall COVID fatigue are leading to many people taking them off in public now.

But masks can still help our kids head into big crowds at school whether it's a kindergarten class or a college lecture.

Dr. Hannah Lichtsinn joins us today to talk about the history of masks, how they're still helping and why you should still send your children to school masked up for the time being.
