Holidays and the COVID-19 Pandemic
As we approach the holiday season, please remember that COVID remains a threat to our community. We are seeing cases begin to increase again, something we expected to see during the winter flu season.
Staying home and avoiding gatherings is the best way to protect yourself and others from COVID-19. If you must travel or planning to have a celebration, be informed of the risks involved. Read Dr. Joe Anzaldua's suggestions and insight as you make preparations.
