Transcript for Can you celebrate Thanksgiving safely with family if you quarantine before?
It was a beautiful thing to see. We have Dr. Jen Ashton here with answers to your many coronavirus questions. Here's our first one. This is one that so many families are asking and trying to figure out. If families do a two-week quarantine during Thanksgiving, is it safe to be unmasked? This is a great question. If it's done in sterile 100%, rigid fashion, yes, in theory it would be safe. The problem is that you have to go to the store. Someone has to come to your house to deliver food.
