This should not need to be said at this point. Hopefully none of my readers need to hear it, but it’s got to be said again. We are facing what may be the worst period in U.S. public health history.
⇒Do not travel for the holidays⇐
Seriously. The US is now losing more people than were killed on 9/11 on a daily basis to COVID-19 alone. A substantial chunk of those numbers come from holiday travel on the week of Thanksgiving. The December holiday season has more holidays, lasts longer, and for some people is more important. If people don’t stay home, January could see us passing 4,000 dead from COVID-19 every day. Just assume that you have the disease, you’re lucky enough to be asymptomatic, and you might give it to the people you love the most. Assume THEY have it, and will give it to you.
Don’t drive drunk, don’t shoot guns off at random in cities, and don’t travel for the holidays. Don’t kill people.
COVID-19 stole a legend from us. Charlie Pride died from complications, age 86.
