She got real about the holidays the day before as well.
As we look towards upcoming celebrations,advice includes wearing one when you're indoors with someone who isn't in your household this holiday season.
In a statement posted on November 14, which also happens to be Diwali, the country's top doctor talked about winter and holiday celebrations.
She said that as we're moving indoors because the weather is getting colder, that can increase the spread of COVID-19 because they're close contact and closed spaces.
It is recommended that everyone wear a non-medical mask when spending time indoors with people from outside of your immediate household.
