#ICYMI: Balancing the benefits and risks of mask-wearing
In case you missed it, we’re resharing our favorite quote from last month’s interview featuring Adrianna Bravo, MD, FAAP, senior medical advisor for Inspire Diagnostics.
Dr. Bravo calls her method to determine when and if to mask the “four A’s”:
1) Audit the COVID risk presented by the particular environment.
2) Assess your own personal COVID risk and your tolerance for that risk.
3) Acknowledge and adjust for the social emotional challenges that mask-wearing may present.
4) Act when you can to reduce risk and ease concerns of others.
She emphasizes that the same careful planning that schools, businesses, and entertainment venues used in developing risk mitigation strategies to open and stay open over the past 2 years needs to be applied to much of the “undoing” of risk mitigation measures, including that of mask-wearing.
