Editor's Note

A new national survey released November 12 by researchers at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, Columbus, finds that a majority of Americans plan to take precautions at holiday gatherings, but many also will put themselves at risk.

Nearly two in five surveyed say they will likely attend a gathering with more than 10 people, and a third will not ask guests to wear masks.
