I just read an article about those who are in COVID-induced isolation from family for Christmas this year. It included a heartbreaking quote from a young woman who, having just tested positive for the coronavirus, will not be able to spend time with her family, as she’d planned, in keeping with CDC guidelines designed to keep all of us from getting it.
“I wouldn’t have gone to Christmas parties or bars if I had known,” said Charlotte Wynn, 24, who recently tested positive. “Those things are essentially meaningless in the grand scheme of things if you don’t get to spend Christmas with your family.”
