It’s beginning to feel a lot like March 2020. COVID cases and hospitalizations are up.

Holiday parties are back online, and just about everyone has a question about boosters, rapid tests, and how to gather safely.

In this week’s installment of “Ask the Doctors,” we'll get expert advice from Dr. Shira Doron, attending physician and hospital epidemiologist at Tufts Medical Center and an associate professor at Tufts University School of Medicine. Dr. Daniel Bourque, infectious disease expert at Boston Medical Center and an assistant professor of medicine at Boston University School of Medicine, joins us, too.

This segment aired on December 21, 2021.
