Crosland Savannah pediatricians family doctors

SouthCoast Health pediatrician Dr. K. Blain Crosland

SouthCoast Health pediatrician Dr. K. Blain Crosland shared suggestions to think through before you participate in those classic summer family activities to prevent contracting or spreading coronavirus on WTOC-TV’s Morning Break.

“We do think that it’s less likely to spread in an outdoor environment,” said Dr. Crosland. “There’s a couple reasons for that. First, you can just get more distanced outside. Secondly, you’re not recirculating air like indoors with A/C.”

Along with wearing masks and practicing social distancing when possible, watch Dr. Crosland’s appearance here to learn more about keeping safe during this COVID-19 summer.
