According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), a small celebration with the people living in your home is the safest way to spend the holidays this year. In-person gatherings with loved ones and friends from different households pose varying risk levels for the spread of COVID-19.
As a reminder, WJCC Schools will continue remote learning through Jan. 8 for most students in anticipation of a post-holiday surge in COVID cases. Peninsula Health Department officials warn that it could take 14 days after Christmas gatherings to see the spike.
Identified groups of special education and English Language learners will learn on-site Dec. 14-18 and transition to remote learning for the week following Winter Break (Jan. 4-8).
If you do choose to travel or celebrate with people outside of your home “bubble,” please wear a face covering, practice social distancing, and wash your hands frequently. These are the greatest gifts you can give to others in our community this holiday season.
Use the WJCC Schools Symptom Checker to monitor your health and watch for symptoms of COVID-19. And keep an eye on local health data by visiting the WJCC Schools’ COVID-19 Dashboard.
