Infectious Disease Doctor Pulled off 400-Person Wedding During Omicron Surge

For Manoj Jain, MD, MPH, an infectious disease specialist in Memphis, Tennessee, Memorial Day 2019 was a particularly meaningful day: His daughter, a lawyer based in Boston, became engaged to be married. The family looked forward to a large Indian wedding that was set for Memorial Day 2020. Then COVID-19 hit. The wedding was postponed and rescheduled. Then rescheduled again, and multiple times after that. In December 2021, Jain said he mentioned to his daughter and her fiancé that he didn't feel there was a way they could safely hold the event in late January 2022. But it still happened; just a little late!
