AARP Texas Statement on the Wearing of Masks

AARP Texas Director Tina Tran issued the following statement today (Tuesday, March 2):

“More than 2.4 million people globally have died so far from COVID-19, and millions more have suffered severe illness. Older Texans and their family members have been among the hardest hit by this deadly virus. AARP Texas recommends that people continue to follow current CDC guidelines on masks.”
