Impact of COVID-19 on Christmas
Letter to the Editor
Although of course not known for certain, it is likely that COVID-19 will still exist in December 2020 potentially impacting a variety of activities relating to Christmas in the USA and worldwide, including parties, shopping for gifts and attending church services. However, let’s not forget Santa Claus. Santa Claus is not young and appears to be a bit overweight, likely from all the milk and cookie treats he consumes each Christmas. Therefore, he may be at greater risk for more severe illness if he develops COVID-19 infection. Does Santa even have a health care provider?
