On CNN on Thursday, a resident doctor advised viewers to wear masks at home while they are around other family members, and that instead of opening presents on Christmas morning, they should do COVID tests.
Dr. William Schaffner also stated that these limits should apply to everyone, including those who have been vaccinated twice or three times.
“I recommend that we hang our stockings with care,” Schaffner stated, adding “We have to be careful because we are all going to get together, we should all be vaccinated and preferentially boosted. We should wear our masks if we are uncertain.”
“Another thing we could do is we could all get tested the morning of our getting together,” Schaffner further urged, before sharing a heartwarming story of how his own family did that for Thanksgiving.
“We were all negative. It worked out just fine,” the doctor declared.
