NM medical doctors provide recommendation after CDC issued new masks pointers
“I think it’s hard for people to remember that this is incredibly fluid, we’ve never seen anything like it, and it has been a challenge for the public and healthcare providers because we keep doing everything we say, need to adjust. Wear masks, don’t wear masks, ”said Dr. Alexandria Cvijanovich, President of the New Mexico Pediatric Society.
The CDC recommended that everyone wear masks indoors, and Governor Michelle Lujan endorsed the move for New Mexicans.
“There is no easy or polite way of saying this, but part of the problem is that far too many people have not been vaccinated,” said Dr. Scott Carroll, a local child psychiatrist, is disappointed and I am concerned for everyone’s safety. “
Carroll and Cvijanovich know this does not go down well with many New Mexicans, especially those who get vaccinated.
“I think we are all fed up with this strange life and have to wear masks and not see each other’s faces,” said Cvijanovich.
Cvijanovich said we still have a responsibility.
Doctors believe this switch will be easier, but recommend speaking to the children now before school starts.
“Kids are actually very adaptable, as long as the adults say, ‘Hey, this is exactly what we have to do, and the adults do it too’ – kids are fine,” “Carroll said.
Even if parents are vaccinated, they recommend that parents show solidarity with their children and also wear masks.
“If we don’t make a big deal of it and do the right thing for our safety and the safety of our families, we’ll be fine, we’ll be fine,” said Carroll.
