Masks, Social Distancing, Hand Hygiene: The Science Behind The Safeguards

Dan Tuohy for NHPR

We look at the research, at times evolving, behind the safeguards promoted to help prevent COVID-19. As much as scientists have learned about this coronavirus, questions remain - from the six-feet-apart rule to the most effective way to wear a mask.

If you have questions about COVID-19 -- including on where, how, and when to get tested -- visit this NH DHHS site.  You can register for a test here

Air date: Wednesday, June 10, 2020.
