FIU Health Expert Discusses Possible State COVID-19 Surge
Florida is seeing cases rise almost a month since the state entered Phase 3 of reopening.
Mary Jo Trepka is an infectious disease epidemiologist at Florida International University. On WLRN's "South Florida Roundup" recently, she said the pandemic is ongoing even as businesses have fully reopened.
“Given that everything is open right now, the schools are open, it’s really important that we do what we can in terms of personally wearing masks when we’re within six feet of other people, staying home when we don’t feel well.”
Trepka says folks should stay on guard because people without symptoms can have the coronavirus and spread it.
