NCFYR National Committeeman and NCGA House Majority Whip Rep. Jon Hardister provided us with an update on COVID-19.

The interview begins right before the 10 minute mark of the video linked here.

The CDC recommends people wear a mask while in public to slow the spread of COVID-19. However, the CDC recommends that people do not place a mask on children 2 years old or younger, as they could have difficulty breathing through a mask.

According to the CDC, less than 2 percent of the confirmed cases of COVID-19 have occurred in people under the age of 18.
