The Reflective Belt Podcast: Episode 40-Command Surgeon Discusses COVID-19 Testing and Reporting Reluctance
VA, UNITED STATES
Brigadier General Sharon Bannister, ACC Command Surgeon, discusses flu season, COVID-19 testing and reporting as well as the noticed reluctance to do so. She also discusses what Airmen can do to stay ready and resilient this fall winter. “Personnel can protect themselves from both flu and COVID-19 by following the force health protection measures established since the pandemic began, which include wearing a mask, staying 6 feet away from others and minimizing interactions to 15 minutes or less, washing your hands often, avoid touching your eyes, mouth and nose, and get your flu vaccine once available. If you ask me, we should have always been washing our hands during flu season so now, the optimist in me is hoping for a light flu season since our population is highly attuned to force health protection measures,” said Bannister.
