Health Editor’s Note: Stay home this Thanksgiving. Do your part to not add to the surging coronavirus cases in the U.S. When all is said and done the day that is labeled as Thanksgiving, is really just another day on the calendar.
Do not host the ‘family’ which very likely will be made up of people who have not been adhering to masking, physical distancing, impeccable hand-washing techniques, etc. Those that would like to come for that free meal, to have something to do to kill the time, often sitting and staring at their phones instead of conversing, will be from younger age groups who do not practice any of the COVID-19 prevention measures since they think they will not contract coronavirus or if they do it will not kill them. But, and this is a large BUT, they can and do carry the virus to others….perhaps that great aunt, grandmother, great-grandfather, who will likely not survive a severe case of COVID-19. You might also have a relative who thinks coronavirus is a hoax. Certainly no need to open your lives up to that craziness.
Stay home so you can see your relatives and friends in the days that come, when we will not be facing a surge of COVID-19 infections and all the destruction this virus can bring. In the meantime: text, face-time, zoom, skype, phone…Carol
