Health commish: masks, social distancing here to stay - St. Albans Messenger

Health Commissioner Mark Levine said that everyone wears a mask at the grocery store that he frequents. He also said the practice is here for the foreseeable future.

"Levine then stepped up to explain why and how masks work. Coronavirus is spread through respiratory droplets whenever someone who is infected speaks, breathes, sneezes or coughs. Sneezing and coughing spread the virus farther than simply speaking does, up to 20 feet.
