COVID is part of the holidays. Here’s how to think about risks now : Shots – Health News : NPR

For the well meaning man who approached me in the grocery store to let me know he “did not believe in COVID-19,” this article is not for you. However, for those of us who continue to have faith in the integrity of public health and the power of science to help protect us from preventable infectious diseases, you will find this NPR (National Public Radio, based in Washington DC) article a timely and sensible update on the state of COVID-19 prevention advice as we approach the holiday travel season.

Be wise, be respectful, stay informed and stay safe.
