Dispel the myths
Physicians from Spectrum Health and members of our medical staff have come together to address the many questions and myths circulating regarding COVID-19. We invite you to share these short videos in your communications and on your social media channels.

Myth #1: Not everyone needs to wear a mask.

Numerous studies show that up to 40% of people who test positive for COVID-19 have no symptoms, which is why it’s so important for everyone to wear a mask to stop the spread. Hear more from the experts on this topic.

Myth #2: Children don't get COVID-19.

Children are not immune from COVID-19, and in some cases can become very ill from the virus. Hear more from the experts on this topic.

Be back-to-school ready
This school year has certainly been different. For those with students learning in the classroom, check out our routine checklist to help you prepare each day and stay safe and healthy while back at school this winter.
