People who may have relaxed social distancing precautions over Labor Day weekend should get tested for Covid-19, White House coronavirus task force coordinator Dr. Deborah Birx said Thursday.
“Our nature is to want to be with others and socialize,” Birx said at a media briefing at the University of South Carolina. “What we’re asking people to do is to socialize smart.”
Birx said that much of asymptomatic spread is happening between and within families and in settings like neighborhood parties.
“Just because we know someone, we think that there’s no way that they could have Covid, but I want to tell you, you can’t tell,” Birx said.
Birx urged those who socialized closely with others over Labor Day weekend, especially without a mask, to get tested. 3 hr 21 min ago.
