“Make sure you 100% adhere to wearing masks to avoid the crowd because you may have inadvertently acquired and distributed Covid, so just be careful in the week after your trip because your risk is increased,” Giroir told CNN’s Dana Bash “Keep in mind that the risk of exposure has increased, so you need to reduce unnecessary activities for about a week, and if you can test it in three or five days, that’s a very good idea.”
Tsar Giroir, the White House coronavirus testing girl, also said that “it is not recommended to quarantine after a trip unless there has been direct exposure to a person treated with Covid for 15 minutes in close contact. But it makes sense. If you are at increased risk because you traveled, do normal clever things, sober Estonian. “
He is a member of the White House coronavirus working group. Dr. Deborah Birx encouraged families gathered for Thanksgiving to test them against the virus.
“If you’re young and gathered, you need to be tested about five to ten days later,” Birx told Margaret Brennan on CBS’s “Face the Nation” on Sunday. “You have to assume you’re infected and don’t go near grandparents, aunts, and others without a mask.
Birx said people over the age of 65 should examine themselves immediately if they have any symptoms.
Giroir said Sunday he is worried about a possible surge in cases and hospital care as holiday travel increases.
“It could certainly be a boom because of the mix of travel and people who weren’t in their own little vagina,” he said. “We’re in a risky period because of the trip, and again, it’s not just the trip, it’s revealing people who weren’t kept in their own vagina.”
He also said that “it is not at all too late to do something about this” and that Americans “take care” when traveling home.
