Connections: Discussing mask etiquette

Connections_News_Highlight.jpg

Two weeks ago, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp sued the city of Atlanta to prevent it from enforcing a mask-wearing requirement. This comes as an increasing number of cities and states are mandating people wear face coverings in public. Stores and businesses across the country have such requirements, but how many are effectively enforcing those policies? When should masks be required indoors and outdoors? Who is eligible for an exemption?

Our guests this hour discuss mask etiquette: 

  • Dr. Marielena Velez de Brown, M.D., Monroe County Deputy Commissioner of Public Health
  • Dr. Mical Raz, M.D., Ph.D., associate professor of clinical medicine at the University of Rochester Medical Center, and professor of history and health policy at the University of Rochester
  • Molly Hartley, co-owner of Scratch Bakeshop
