Dr. Hirsh – “I think masking is really going to make a comeback.”
“I think masking is really going to make a comeback.” Dr. Michael Hirsh tells us that RSV is causing the Emergency Rooms to be overrun. Kids are getting hit hard because for the last few years they have been wearing masks and very young kids haven’t gotten exposed the way they would have in the past and so older kids are getting hit with it in a way they haven’t before. “School systems are going to have to rethink this a little bit if we want to get through the next few months.” Conversations are happening with the school health advisory committee. Dr. Hirsh does recommend kids wear masks through the holidays to keep them out of the hospital.
