The Valley Today: A COVID-19 Masking Conversation with Dr. Switzer

Dr. David Switzer, Board Certified Family Medicine Physician with Valley Health Page Memorial Hospital Family Medicine | Luray sat down with Janet Michael, host of The Valley Today podcast, on July 30 to discuss COVID-19 myths and how and why masks work.

Dr. Switzer answered questions about why we should wear masks, the types of masks that are effective (or not), and explained the risks for someone wearing a mask encountering someone who isn’t. The duo also discussed the safety of people with respiratory illnesses such as COPD. Dr. Switzer offers several tips, in addition to wearing a mask, that you can use to protect yourself from the virus.

We will get through this pandemic and emerge on the other side — stronger, smarter and #HealthierTogether.
