With schools boards beseiged by parents who object to their children wearing masks, a new study by the ECRI Institute has found that cloth masks can be effective against COVID 19 in school settings. Delmarva Public Media's Don Rush talked with the organization's President and CEO Dr. Marcus Schabacker who says that in conjunction with other efforts such as social distancing the masks can reduce the spread of the virus.
