Dear Members of the Baylor College of Medicine Community,
As we head into New Year’s weekend, it is time to answer more of your questions. In this week’s video, I talk about lots of issues including home COVID tests, the recent question of whether masking on planes is still necessary and how to gather safely and still be protected from the Omicron variant.
You can find the latest data on the Texas Medical Center website. It is updated on Mondays.
Please think carefully before going to large public gatherings to celebrate the New Year. Starting 2022 with a COVID infection is not going to be the best way to ring in the New Year.
Lily and I will be staying at home with the family to watch Michigan in the College Football Playoffs. Lily is confident that the wolverines can beat the bulldogs.
Have a happy and safe New Year’s celebration. I will see you in 2022.
Paul Klotman, M.D.
President & CEO
