Dr. Morley emphasizes the importance of wearing a mask and protecting those vulnerable and elderly from public exposure. He also highlights recent CDC results regarding a viral and antibody test of COVID-19.
Dr. Morley also shares his thoughts on the effects that the recent protests, in the wake of Minnesota resident George Floyd’s alleged murder, may have on the COVID-19 pandemic. He emphasizes how St. Louis County may require additional testing, especially within nursing homes.
