As thousands in the Bay Area begin celebrating Lunar New Year, Dr. Mychi Nguyen, Chief Medical Officer at Asian Health Services, talks about the precautions people should take when gathering with big crowds in an interview with Marcus Washington.
Dr. Nguyen advises, “Keep the gatherings small and outdoors if you can. Ventilate as much as possible, opening up a window, a door. My family got creative and set out a table in our garage and lifted the garage door open and had a picnic. And also for folks is to make sure, if you are eligible and have a chance, to get vaccinated or boosted before these large gatherings. An extra layer of protection for a lot of folks is testing with COVID rapid tests at home either before or after the gathering.”
