Gen Z students preparing for COVID-19 in the future

HAZARD, KY. (WTVQ) – We’ve learned information about COVID-19 from doctors and the CDC but what about GEN Z?

The Hazard ARH Regional Medical Center wants to prepare them for the possibility of the virus continuing to hit the nation.

Hazard native Joshua Watts, DO, and doctor Maria Braman discussed COVID-19 with six students from central and eastern Kentucky on Monday.

During the live event, the students voiced their concerns, asked questions and spoke about how they feel about the COVID-19 pandemic.

Watts says young people deserve to have their voices heard during this time as well.

“Young people are our future. You’ve probably heard it, I have as well when I was younger that we’re the future of tomorrow and with this COVID-19 has pretty much shaped a new future for us and it will be, it’s always going to be here most likely from now on and once again those young people are a huge part,” Watts said.

He says the ARH wants to remind people to continue to connect with others while practicing social distancing and that it’s okay to continue to take care of yourself, always feel free to reach out to your healthcare providers if you aren’t feeling well.
