Doctors wear masks for a reason.

It's time that the ridiculous politicalization of basic public health stops. There is a reason why the hospital, dentists and doctor's offices are requiring masks. We're not making political statements. We're trying to protect patients and ourselves from a deadly pandemic that has

killed over 120,000 Americans in less than 5 months.  Masks have been a critical part of infection control for over a century. We require shirts & shoes in restaurants. Wearing a mask won't hurt you. The OR team does it every single day without any health consequences.  It's not about you - it's about all of us. Make the least effort and be a good human.
