Let's do it. We got some good ones today. I know we do. Every day. This is not from me but I want to hear the answer. If every person in a room receives both doses of the vaccine, can they take the mask off and not social distance, doc? Okay, official guidelines, not in on this yet, right? So they certainly have not been given the green light. We have not been given the green light yet after two weeks second dose if you're getting a two-dose regimen. However, just listened to one of the top epidemiologists in the country if not the world Dr. Michael easterhome from Minnesota, his podcast, and he said boy we have to get to that point. That is the way of living, and you cannot expect our country or the world to get vaccinated, and then to keep up these very unnatural kind of social mitigation measures forever. Short term, we can do anything. Long term, we have to get to that point. A noncovid question here. Interesting. That's code for T.J. Holmes. We talked about this this morning when you came in and this question happens to be in here. When weighing myself, how important is it to be consistent in terms of location, timing and clothing? A lot of variables there, a lot to unpack, in the hospital setting, when we weigh patients, yes, it is done generally at the same time of day. Studies have shown that people out of a hospital who have a scale and weigh themselves just once a week, tend to do better with weight loss attempts or Weig management. Guys, we don't have to turn this into a science project. Of course if you're wearing heavy clothes, you can add two to three pounds, depending on bathroom habits, that can add some weight, what you've eaten. So there is a wide range that your body weight can fluctuate day to day. All right. That's it. First thing in the morning is when I do it. Perfect. Thank you, Dr. Jen. And you can submit questions to Dr. Jen on her Instagram at @drjashton.
