Former Vice President Joe Biden on Monday urged Americans for Thanksgiving to follow COVID guidelines put forward by “health experts,” including wearing masks inside the home and limiting gatherings to five family members, but not more than 10.
Biden’s comments came at a press conference in Delaware, where he was asked if families should make special accommodations for coronaviruses this holiday season.
“What is your message to people who are considering, for example, reuniting with their families and others for Thanksgiving?” Do you think, could you get people to reconsider their plans? A bogus reporter asked Biden.
Biden claimed he was told to limit his own Thanksgiving gathering to between five and ten people and that he was told everyone in his house was wearing masks, was socially distant, should be quarantined for a number of days and should have been tested. negative for COVID in the past 24 hours.
Here is Biden’s response:
Joe Biden: “Well, here’s what I would do. Let me tell you what the health experts have told me, and it’s not because I’m unique as president-elect, it’s because of my family: they strongly insist that if in fact we’re going to have Thanksgiving with whoever, limit us to a maximum, maximum, they suggest five people, maximum 10 people, socially distant, wearing masks, and people who have quarantined. So Jill and I have spent this morning, like many of you, trying to figure out: what are we going to do on Thanksgiving? How are we going to do this? And we figured out which family members and whether they were tested – recently tested, within 24 hours.
“And, therefore, I would urge you strongly for love – not just for yourself, for the sake of your children, your mother, your father, your sisters, your brothers, whoever you get together for Thanksgiving. Think about it. There shouldn’t be any group of more than 10 people in one room – I mean, inside the house. That’s what they tell me. They tell me, making sure it is.
“And I have the most powerful mask behind it all. I took it off when I came here. I wear it inside. That you are masked. Save lives.
“And so, look, I just want to make sure we can be together on Thanksgiving, next Christmas.” I mean, it’s, it’s an international crisis. It is an international health crisis. And the idea – we are at war with a virus. And it is that we are at war. For real. “You all seem to be wearing masks all the time, in the group that follows me, that here – follows me – that is assigned to Delaware with me. There is nothing macho about not wearing a mask.
