Dear Members of the Baylor College of Medicine Community,
It has been an interesting week in the world of COVID-19. In this week’s video message, I talk about the increasing number of cases in our area and the role of testing in this pandemic. A major area of focus for me continues to be on communicating the seriousness of the situation and the need to practice social distancing and wearing masks. It works. Studies show staying 6 feet apart from others and wearing a mask does offer protection. I toured labs this week and have been making the rounds in other areas offering this same message. Assume that anyone you come in contact with has the virus. Protect yourself and others. Wear your mask. Stay apart.
I would also like to say Happy Father’s Day to all the dads and father figures out there and to share first birthday photos of Lily.
Thank you Baylor College of Medicine, for everything you are doing for the institution and the community.
Paul Klotman, M.D.
