Don't Throw Out Your Masks And Hand Sanitizer Just Yet

Description

A relative handful of Americans have received the vaccine to protect against the novel coronavirus. But according to HuffPost, it's unclear if those lucky few can still pass along the virus to others, even if they themselves aren't infected. Likewise, it's important to remember that even after getting the jab, it takes the body at least a month to build up its immunity to COVID-19. Therefore, it's essential to continue following proven public health measures, like universal masking, handwashing, and physical distancing. Experts say Americans shouldn't start to relax on observing these measures until roughly 70% of the population has been vaccinated.

Business Insider reports Dr. Anthony Fauci says small indoor gatherings are driving new spread, so people should consider avoiding them. You get one person who's asymptomatic and infected, and then all of a sudden four or five people in that gathering are infected. That's the exact scenario that you're going to see in Thanksgiving. Dr. Anthony Fauci Most public health experts generally agree that time spent together should be limited, and masks should be worn except when eating and drinking.
