Is anxiety getting in the way of your mask wearing?

Is anxiety getting in the way of your mask wearing? Masks help contain the coronavirus and it is each of our responsibilities to support our community.

Here’s a desensitization program which should help you wear one more comfortably.

Of note… N95 masks with valves spew the wearer’s respiratory viruses out the valve and do not protect others. I urge cotton masks, surgical masks, or N95s without valves.

This is me on hospital rounds—N95 with cotton mask on top ( with eye glasses and scrub hat for extra protection)…not glamorous, but necessary.
