In the midst of the controversy surrounding the need to wear masks in school, the physicians at Old Harding Pediatric Associates would like to clearly state our position on the issue:
We fully support the recommendations put forth by the CDC and the American Academy of Pediatrics that ALL students, regardless of age or vaccination status, should wear a mask while at school. While we recognize that masks are not a guarantee against the spread or contraction of COVID-19, they have clearly shown to help decrease these rates. Like immunizations for our older patients, masks are a tool in the arsenal to combat the spread of COVID and help keep our patients safe and in school.
This coming Fall, Old Harding Pediatrics will be adding another amazing physician to our practice.
