(CNN)The CEO and President of South Dakota-based Sanford Health, one of the largest health systems in the U. S. , says he will not be wearing a mask because he has already had Covid-19.

Citing "growing evidence," that he is now immune to the virus, Krabbenhoft said "for me to wear a mask defies the efficacy and purpose of a mask and sends an untruthful message that I am susceptible to infection or could transmit it.

"Our health care providers have called upon our communities to do their part by wearing masks and physically distancing to slow the spread of the virus.

"For people who have not contracted the virus and may acquire it and then spread it, it is important for them to know that masks are just plain smart to use and in their best interest," he said.

"Whether you've had the virus or not, it is recommended that you wear a mask when you cannot be socially distanced," the email from executive management said.
