July 30, 2020 –In an attempt to help mitigate the increasing spread of
COVID-19, Southeast Georgia Health System continues to strongly encourage everyone
to protect their friends, family and neighbors by wearing a face covering
and practicing social distancing when in public.
Hopeful that sharing personal stories on social media will serve as an
influential tool to flatten the curve, the Health System has created a
social media challenge to inspire the community to wear face masks. Participants
are encouraged to share photos and videos on
Instagram with #COVIDendswithme along with a message on why they choose to wear a mask.
“The increase in positive cases is certainly cause for concern,” says
Michael D. Scherneck, president and CEO, Southeast Georgia Health System. “The only effective
ways that we know will help to reduce the spread of coronavirus is social
distancing and wearing a face covering when in public. If you’re
in an environment where you cannot be six feet away from others, you absolutely
should be wearing a mask.”
