News Feature - Dr. Mark Eggena - COVID-19 Update 8/20/20

Dr. Mark Eggena of Pen Bay Medical Center updated us Aug. 20 on the ongoing pandemic, and his message was one of gratitude and cautious optimism. The Midcoast has been fortunate to have low numbers of cases, and he gives a lot of credit to the fact that people here have been diligent in taking safety precautions such as wearing masks, washing hands, using sanitizer and practicing social distancing. He urges people to connect with their primary care doctors and not put off preventative health care. Doctor’s offices are safe and will protect patients from COVID. While it is not a good idea to have large gatherings like parties and weddings, as we have seen, he believes back to school plans in the Midcoast can work for parents and students.
