Experts Say Small Gatherings Are A Big Factor In Spreading COVID-19

There won’t be many large-scale gatherings during Labor Day Weekend – but health experts say smaller get-togethers can still be a big risk.

One doctor told USA Today “these small events add up to a lot” and said he’s treated a number of patients who contracted the virus at barbecues.

A study out of Maryland last month found that nearly half the people who tested positive for coronavirus had attended a family gathering, and about one quarter had attended a house party.
