Put Holiday Plans on Hold if You’re Not Feeling Well

While it’s a time of holiday gatherings, it can also be a time of germ spreading.

With the rise of the Omicron variant of COVID, Chickasaw County Public Health Administrator Lisa Welter says health officials are on high alert.

Whether it’s COVID, the flu or any other ailment causing you to feel under the weather, Welter advises postponing your attendance at holiday gatherings, as tough as that decision can be.

If you’re healthy but still concerned about germs at holiday gatherings you’re attending, Welter says consider wearing a face mask and, of course, sanitize and wash your hands frequently.
