[ARCHIVED] Family Gatherings and COVID-19

As we approach the holiday season, we are simultaneously confronting a public health emergency. Although the development of a Coronavirus vaccine holds the promise of a better 2021, limited physical contact, social distancing, mask-wearing, and hand washing are the best prevention science has to offer right now. Over the next six to twelve months, our behavior will have a considerable impact on just how bad the COVID-19 pandemic gets.

Family gatherings typical for this time of year present a fertile environment for transmission and spread of the Coronavirus. The CDC has published the following recommendations to slow or prevent COVID-19 infections, especially now. ( You will find a great deal of information about travel, celebrating the holidays, and family dinners during the pandemic.

Please note that avoiding travel and family get-togethers is the best way to prevent the Coronavirus spread. It may not be popular or what we want to hear, but it is a fact. What we do and don't do during this holiday season will determine how happy our holidays are next year. My wish for you and your family is a safe and healthy new year.
