CNN Medical Guest on Covid: This Is Becoming Our New Normal

‘Prevention and multilayer protection is good pandemic sense’

EXCERPT:

PERNELL: “This is becoming our new normal if I can use that often overused term. For those of us that are fully vaccinated, those of us who are boosted, those of us who are wearing our masks still outdoors in public settings, we know that we are lessening the risk of being exposed and contracting Coronavirus. So, yes, we have to have a sense of zest, a zeal for life. Because we know that social isolation in and of itself is also a risk factor for worse outcomes. So, do what makes good pandemic sense. And prevention and multilayer protection is good pandemic sense.”
