As COVID-19 continues to impact our lives, the reality of what will bring this pandemic to an end lies in the hopes of a vaccine. Many experts predict a vaccine will be developed by the end of 2020, but until this occurs, our best defense to avoid another surge in cases is social distancing of at least 6 feet and wearing a mask. New London Hospital urges members of our community to Mask Up, as wearing a mask protects and respects others.
