Bishop Jakes sent a message to his hometown of South Charleston West Virginia regarding the COVID-19 pandemic.
In a video posted on Herbert Henderson Office of Minority Affairs FB page, Jakes said hello to his former classmates, church members and friends before declaring that we are living in tough times. He went on to insist that folks get tested, wear face masks, and practice social distancing.
“Wear a mask. It’s so much easier to wear a mask than to wear a ventilator. Wear a mask. Social distance yourself, even from people you know and love. If they don’t live with you, keep your distance,” Jakes says in the video.
