COVID-19 Update 

If you had told me a year ago when I wrote my first article regarding COVID-19 that we would continue to face challenges with this virus a year later, I would not have believed it. However, here we are one year later, and we continue to hold virtual meetings, practice social distancing, and wear masks, and each comes with its challenges. 

Misconceptions about face masks continue to be a concern. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that people wear face masks in public settings, especially indoors and when social distancing is difficult. Wearing your mask correctly and consistently is crucial for protecting yourself and others. Several websites, such as the CDC, the World Health Organization, and Johns Hopkins Medicine, offer advice on face masks.
