Poll: What Are Your Holiday Plans?

We’re coming up on an unusual Christmas at the end of 2020.

Thanksgiving gatherings resulted in an increase in coronavirus cases and — while Inova is holding steady with hospitalizations — there is a continued increase in COVID-19 cases in Alexandria.

Alexandria Health Director Dr. Stephen Haering urged locals not to travel for the holidays if they could avoid it.

“Traveling for celebrations is a hallmark of these holidays but is especially risky with the COVID-19 increases across the country,” Haering said. “If you can’t avoid traveling, know your travel risk and consider getting tested both before and after traveling, particularly if you are visiting or returning home to someone at high risk of severe illness. Keep in mind that the virus can take between 2-14 days to incubate. AHD recommends that you wait about 7-10 days after a gathering or travel to get tested.”

Even distanced, the CDC warned that gathering with friends or family who do not live with you can increase your chance of spreading COVID-19.

Are you risking that to gather with family or are you planning something smaller with the folks you live with. Sound off in the comments if you have other plans.
