Governor Polis Shares Video Proving the Difference a Mask Makes
In another plea to lower coronavirus cases in Colorado, Governor Polis decided to use visual aids.
In a post on his Facebook page this morning. Governor Polis shared an 8-second video from PBS that shows the difference a mask makes. When someone coughs without a mask on, their germs travel a farther distance— which, you know, should be obvious, but sometimes you have to see it to believe it.
Since COVID-19 passes in droplets, it can spread through coughs, sneezes, or even just talking too closely to someone. This is why many health professionals continue to urge Coloradans to wear a mask in public and continue to social distance as much as you can.
