Mississippi Lt. Gov. Delbert Hosemann has joined celebrities like Chris Rock, Shawn Colvin and the Louisiana State football team in promoting the importance of wearing a mask during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Hosemann made a 30-second video for the National Organizing Coalition on Virus Information Distribution, or NOCOVID, and posted it on his Facebook page Monday.

A COVID-19 survivor, Hosemann uses his own experience to reach out to Mississippians on the video.

“I can testify COVID is not just the flu. It can put you in the hospital or even worse,” he said, adding, “I’m here to ask you love your neighbor as yourself,” by wearing a mask and social distancing.

NOCOVID aims to “communicate to all Americans – where they live, through people they trust, and in words that speak to them – the most current health, economic, and social facts and techniques to defeat the virus,” according to its website.

On its board are people from all walks of life including former Mississippi governor Ray Mabus, authors, entrepreneurs, CEOs and movie producers. It gleans data from respected sources including the Centers for Disease Control.
