Published June 6, 2022

An article originally appearing in Prevention and reposted in Yahoo! News on proms being the latest superspreader event for COVID-19 quotes Thomas Russo, chief of infectious diseases in the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. “Prom has "all the elements to facilitate the spread of COVID," says Russo. "They're usually indoors with a large number of people that are in close contact — in some circumstances, very close contact — for a prolonged period of time," Russo says.
