Wearing masks indoors recommended again
December 14, 2022
Communities in Washington and nationwide are experiencing an unprecedented surge in viral respiratory illnesses, including respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), influenza and COVID-19. As a result, local emergency departments, urgent care clinics and walk-in clinics are severely strained and many have reached full capacity.
“I recommend that everyone wear a high-quality, well-fitting mask when around others in indoor spaces to protect yourself and others” says Dr. Leibrand, Skagit County Health Officer. “As a reminder, N95s and KN95s provide you the best protection.”
