Don’t Get Lax About COVID-19 During Holidays

Updated November 12, 2020

Multiple stories quote Thomas A. Russo, MD, professor of medicine and chief of the Division of Infectious Diseases, on COVID-19 precautions, including plans for the holidays. “I think we’re in for a rough four months,” Russo said. “This is the year of COVID. We have to realize it’s not business as usual and a lot of the things we like to do, we cannot do safely,” The articles reported on Russo’s belief that the case increases have come about because of “the combination of that false sense of security and a shift to indoor activities that has made people more lax.”
