Findings from a study by corresponding author, Tim Bruckner, PhD, professor of health, society, and behavior, determined that racial/ethnic minorities, and non-Hispanic Black adults appeared least likely to have engaged in risky holiday gatherings in late 2020 and may have reduced the intensity of the 2020/21 “winter surge” in COVID-19. Co-authors include Abhery Das, PhD in Public Health candidate and Distinguished Professor Greg Duncan, PhD, of UCI’s School of Education.
