"Do you need to test for COVID before the holidays? A balanced approach to celebrating safely this year"


ABC News interviewed Dr. Anne Rimoin, UCLA Fielding School of Public Health professor of epidemiology, about COVID-19

With Americans about to celebrate a third Thanksgiving since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, infectious disease doctors say it may be safe to celebrate with slightly more relaxed rules this year.

“It’s important to just recognize we are in a very different place from two years ago. This population is getting more and more immune,” said Dr. Peter Chin-Hong, an infectious disease physician at the University of California San Francisco.

“The most important thing is having balance. This is a tough time. It's important to see our family and our loved ones if we can," said Dr. Rupa Patel, a research associate professor at Washington University School of Medicine.
