State’s Chief Medic: Be Smart And Loved Ones May Not Be Dead Next Thanksgiving

Dr. Joneigh Khaldun, chief medical executive for the state of Michigan, has offered guidance on how people should conduct themselves for the Thanksgiving holiday.

“This is not the time to travel for the holidays,” Khaldun said in the Nov. 12 press conference. “You also should not be leaving your home unless you absolutely must for 14 days before you intend to travel.”

“You should not have physical contact with people who you don’t already live with. I know you may want to hug your extended family, but you could have the virus and you could spread it to them.”

Khaldun added: “If you are smart now, you may be able to have a nice holiday with your loved ones alive at this time next year.”
