Should I Have a Big Family Gathering at Thanksgiving?
Dr. Jim Morrow: [00:00:00] We’re a week and a day past the election of 2020, and the pandemic did not end with the recent election. Hell, the election didn’t end with the recent election, so the pandemic certainly never had a chance. But please continue to be aware of your surroundings and who you’re with, how long you’re with them, where you’re with them, and what you’re wearing when you’re with them. We know now, like we didn’t know for months and months, we know now that the biggest threat is indoors without a mask, more than 15 minutes of contact in a 24 hour period and being within six feet of each other. So the classic example that I think, is going to dinner with somebody you don’t spend a lot of time with, you might be being very careful, they might be not quite so much. And you end up with COVID-19 three days later. So be very careful and be smart about what you’re doing.
Dr. Jim Morrow: [00:00:50]Thanksgiving is coming up. I’ve been getting asked a lot about what my thoughts are about Thanksgiving. And I think if you’ve got brother John and sister Sarah coming from Texas and Florida, I think is a terrible idea. I think it’s a good year to not do the big Thanksgiving with people that you’re not around most of the time anyway, or people who have not been sheltering, certainly. So be careful about that, because if you’re old, like John and I are, you are definitely at risk.
