“I appreciate everyone of you who is taking COVID-19 seriously and doing your part by wearing a mask when outside your household ‘bubble’,” said Dr. Dan Nafziger, Goshen Hospital Chief Medical Officer and Infectious Disease Specialist. “Wearing a mask shows you care about your health and your neighbor. I am particularly appreciative of our elected officials who have made good choices to protect the health of our community. We continue to receive universally positive messages of support from the children in our schools. It brings me joy when children model the best of what it means to be human.”
