  • Americans who met with family they don’t live with over Thanksgiving should assume they have COVID-19 and get tested, the coordinator of the White House Coronavirus Task Force has said.
  • Thanksgiving gatherings could cause a fourth surge of the virus, or a wave within a wave, Dr. Deborah Birx told CBS on Sunday.
  • Families should also wear masks indoors “if they chose to gather during Thanksgiving and others went across the country or even into the next state,” Birx said.
  • Millions of families across the US gathered to celebrate the holiday. The day before Thanksgiving was the busiest day for air travel since March 16.
