Surgeon General Reminds WH That COVID Restrictions Apply There Too – By Cristina Cabrera (Talking Points Memo) / Nov 23 2020
U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams emphasized on Monday morning that health safety measures apply to everyone, including at White House, ahead of first lady Melania Trump’s indoors “holiday reception” slated for next week.
“Good Morning America” host Cecilia Vega asked Adams about the danger of the party potentially becoming a superspreader event.
“We want everyone to understand that these holiday celebrations can be superspreader events, so we want them to be smart and we want them to be as small as possible,” Adams replied.
The health official pointed to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) guidelines on holiday festivities, which urge people to keep the gatherings small and limited to those living in the same household.
