Today Gov. Greg Abbott announced he was lifting the mandatory mask mandate for the state on March 10 as the number of COVID-19 infections continues to decrease. While the downward trend is a great milestone for our community, we must not forget the necessity of continuing to protect ourselves, our families, our friends and our neighbors. As the governor said, withdrawing the mandate does not mean withdrawing your personal responsibility to wear a mask. Even if it is not mandated, as your Pulmonary Physician, I urge all my patients to wear our masks until enough of our community is vaccinated that we approach herd immunity. Besides being vaccinated, wearing a mask is the most effective way to keep infections down and begin to return to normal. We encourage you to make the personal decision to keep wearing your mask. Because when we do the right thing, we can stop the spread together.

COVID-19 has now been with us for a while. As patients adjust to the “new normal”, doctors and researchers are learning how to best treat the long-term effects of this virus. Because the coronavirus is a respiratory disease, it is especially important for patients with pulmonary issues to monitor their symptoms. Here’s what patients need to know.
How Does COVID-19 Affect the Lungs?
COVID-19 causes inflammation as the virus infects a person’s airways. This inflammation leads to some of the trademark COVID symptoms: a dry cough, pain while breathing, and difficulty catching one’s breath. However, the disease affects all patients differently. Patients with pre-existing pulmonary conditions are more likely to develop lung symptoms, including symptoms that last after the patient recovers from the coronavirus. This is because a person with pre-existing lung conditions already has a weaker lung capacity, making them more vulnerable to this type of infection.
Lung Symptoms to Watch For
In addition to the symptoms above, a lung patient with COVID-19 is also at risk for developing pneumonia, acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), and other complications. These complications can last beyond a person’s COVID infection. Other long-term effects, such as problems breathing, can be milder but will still impact a patient’s overall quality of life.
