Safety Today for You and the Community

A big surge in holiday travel is expected today. In addition to the Covid surge, people tend to drink and drive during the holidays, so it’s a good idea to take precautions. Consider

  • Remembering that the greatest thing we can do for health care workers right now is not to beome another patient in an already over-stressed system.
  • Spending at least a few minutes in prayer or quiet reflection.
  • Call or Zoom with family and friends.
  • Remaining safer at home. Watch movies, listen to music, play games, cook special meals, bake cookies, make mulled cider, take walks, read and work on the December self-care challenge.
  • Instead of going to church, watching a live service online.
  • Take a virtual tour of the White House decorations.
  • Driving on secondary roads instead of major highways. It takes longer but there are fewer and less severe accidents.
  • Staying off the roads completely after dark.
  • Wearing a mask anytime you are indoors and not in your home.
  • Staying home if you feel sick at all.
  • Be a little more patient, if you are spending time with family. Take time for yourself and breathe and stretch. Manage your expectations and focus on the positive.
