Hirsh – Covid Cases On the Rise in Massachusetts and Worcester
Covid cases are on the rise in Massachusetts and Worcester. This has led the administration to recommend that masks once again be worn indoors. Dr. Michal Hirsh tells us that it is a recommendation not a mandate and that although the numbers are on the rise the number of hospitalizations remains low compared to the height of Covid. These latest variations are highly transmissible and it appears people can catch these new mutations even if they are fully vaccinated and even if they have had Covid in the past. Dr. Hirsh says being fully vaccinated and getting the booster is still your best defense against getting a severe case.
