Surgeon General Personal Plea: Wearing Mask ‘Will Protect My Mother’

U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams made clear on Sunday that mask-wearing is personal to him.

I want people to understand that if cases and hospitalizations continue to go up, not only will it hurt our ability to care for Covid patients, but if someone is having a baby, they may not be able to get a bed.
