More COVID info wanted!

A client shares ideas on how MDOC can communicate better: "I think all prisons should get a PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT video showing the ways COVID 19 is transmitted. Also show how when a person talks an aerosol comes out of his/her mouth EVERYTIME. I'm in a unit where everyone has tested positive and a lot of guys are NOT wearing masks! Their rationale is they can't catch it again because they have already caught it. We need a PSA video showing a person getting re-infected or experiencing VIRAL OVER LOAD which in turn causes symptoms to flare up. We have a mandatory mask wearing policy now but the officers are not enforcing this rule (in the unit where I'm at)! I believe if guys saw with their own eyes (a video highlighting the things I just mentioned) they would start wearing a mask!"
