After the recent lockdowns in New York, New Jersey, and even the whole West coast, many people are wondering whether they should be getting together this year for the holiday season. After all, people coming from different communities, cities, and states will have a higher likelihood of spreading a virus than simply staying at home, right?
Today on The Call Room, we’re going to talk about what precautions are necessary for preventing the spread of COVID during this holiday season. We’ll go over recent scientific studies that provide us some new insights on transmission with or without masks, as well as asymptomatic spread and “super spreaders”. Listen in to learn more about the transmission of COVID-19, the actual risk of asymptomatic spread, and what you need to know to wear a mask effectively.
“I think an important differential between COVID and the flu is that COVID tends to prey on the elderly and those with comorbidities.” – Dr. Robert Berry
