“Everyone says the virus is going to get worse as we move inside. COVID caseloads are trending up and everyone is just tired of social distancing. I think all of us have a bit of foreboding about what is to come.“

This week on the Cone of Shame, Dr. Andy Roark talks with Dr. Beth Davidow about her recent article “Winter is Coming… Are You Prepared.” They cover everything from sick policies to air purifiers to clinic-branded outerwear.
