A pandemic Christmas approaches.
Health officials are urging those who plan on traveling or getting together in large groups to reconsider their plans.
“I know recently we’ve had some good news,” says Dr Jeff Pothof, UW Health chief quality officer. “We’ve had decreased cases, some decreased hospitalizations. But better doesn’t mean that things are good now, that this pandemic is over. It’s still a tremendous risk that you take. Not only for yourself, but for the family that you’re visiting and for other in your community.
He recommends a virtual Christmas this year.
“We just need folks to buckle down for one more holiday.”
If you are still getting together with someone outside your household, social distancing is still recommended, as well as wearing masks and meeting outside if possible.
