Can you use a comma after “that”?

Thank you for the question. When we use “that” as a pronoun, determiner, adverb, or conjunction, we do not use commas. For example: “That is my book.” (pronoun) “How much is that car?” (determiner) “The fish was that big.” (adverb) “She told him that she liked the class.” (conjunction)
