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.
