Epidemiologist on COVID-19 second wave and the holiday season

Gov. Phil Murphy says community spread of COVID-19 in New Jersey is happening largely because of private indoor gatherings where people let their guards and masks down.

Can New Jersey stave off even more incidents as holiday season approaches? Montclair State University professor and epidemiologist Stephanie Silvera discusses the possibilities with Anchor Briana Vannozzi.
