Southeast Georgia Health System Launches #COVIDendswithme Challenge

July 30, 2020

In an attempt to help mitigate the increasing spread of COVID-19, Southeast Georgia Health System continues to strongly encourage everyone to protect their friends, family and neighbors by wearing a face covering and practicing social distancing when in public.

Hopeful that sharing personal stories on social media will serve as an influential tool to flatten the curve, the Health System has created a social media challenge to inspire the community to wear face masks. Participants are encouraged to share photos and videos on Facebook and Instagram with #COVIDendswithme along with a message on why they choose to wear a mask.


“The increase in positive cases is certainly cause for concern,” says Michael D. Scherneck, president and CEO, Southeast Georgia Health System. “The only effective ways that we know will help to reduce the spread of coronavirus is social distancing and wearing a face covering when in public. If you’re in an environment where you cannot be six feet away from others, you absolutely should be wearing a mask.”

  • Take a photo or video of yourself wearing a face covering or mask.

  • Post it on social media with #COVIDendswithme
