Dr. Hopkins urges residents to wear masks. He said wearing it properly is key and it is important to cover your nose with the mask, not just your mouth. He said he knows masks have been a point of contention, and he knows they’re not convenient, but the reality is that, with few exceptions, they should be worn from a social responsibility and public health standpoint.
