CENTRAL NEW YORK (WSYR-TV) — Stick with who you know! That’s the advice when it comes to get-togethers for the rest of the summer. Even after months of quarantining, isolating, and Zooming, Upstate’s Dr. Stephen Thomas says we need to continue to be smart when it comes to inviting people over.
“It’s not just that person who is coming over to the house. It’s every other person in the last 14 days that they’ve been in contact with that’s coming over to your house. So, from the beginning, I’ve been saying and continue to maintain, keep the groups very small,” Dr. Thomas said.
And while research is happening at break-neck speed, Dr. Thomas doesn’t think there will be a COVID-19 vaccine by the end of the year, but perhaps in the second quarter of 2021, a vaccine will be widely available.
