Happy Thanksgiving! The upcoming holiday season will bring us the chance to spend time with our friends and families and as we look forward to the upcoming holiday gatherings, we hope that you take every precaution to keep your friends and families safe. If you do not feel well or have any COVID or “cold like” symptoms, then stay home and get tested as soon as possible.
Over the last several weeks we have seen a steady increase in cases and as everyone spends more time inside, we anticipate that case numbers may continue to increase as people gather over Thanksgiving and the upcoming holiday season. This may result in higher numbers of COVID-19 cases in our schools and in the community as we return from these celebrations.
To mitigate the spread of COVID-19 we encourage everyone to take the following steps. Wash hands and wear masks where appropriate. Get vaccinated if you are eligible; vaccines are now available to anyone 5 years of age and older. Vaccines are safe and effective. Vaccinated individuals are less likely to catch and spread the virus and do not have to quarantine if exposed to a positive case.
We hope you stay safe and healthy Thanksgiving and enjoy the festivities of the upcoming holiday season.
