We're five days out from Thanksgiving, and just over three weeks away from Christmas.
Fewer people traveled for Thanksgiving this year than in 2019, but air travel still broke a pandemic-era record.

We answer listener coronavirus questions with Dr. Helen Boucher, Chief of the Division of Geographic Medicine and Infectious Diseases at Tufts Medical Center, and a professor at the Tufts University School of Medicine; and Dr. Joshua Barocas, Infectious diseases physician and Assistant Professor of Medicine at Boston Medical Center and the Boston University School of Medicine.
