Holidays and COVID

It’s that time of year where festivities usually are in full swing and plans for Christmas and New Years are being set, and I am saying no to all of it.

I work at an ENT office as a medical assistant/scribe and as such we are pretty high on the list of exposure because most people we see have symptoms COVID can cause and we work in the area of the nose that houses the virus. Being that I’m in the rooms while scopes and the like are being done I don’t feel comfortable attending family events because I don’t want to risk getting my family sick if I am asymptomatic, or contracting from them if they happen to be positive.

I’m not going to lie it’s hard though. December is a rough month emotionally all ready with the passing of my mom on the 23rd and family really helps. The potential risk is too scary though. My family is large and a lot of them older so why risk it?

Here’s to a holiday of love from afar and lots of virtual chats.

I completely understand that and makes sense, BUT you still need to be with family even just to say merry christmas and a smile or fist bump use a mask if you feel it necessary but you need to make some sort of contact as we all have one time on this planet don’t miss out on seeing someone even just for a brief moment. Be safe as you always are and enjoy your holidays. The dad in law. 🙂
