Herkimer County Public Health - COVID and the holidays
December 20, 2021
Herkimer County Public Health would like to wish everyone a happy, healthy and safe holiday season! To help make that wish possible for all, PLEASE get vaccinated and/or boostered, wear your masks whenever you are not with members of your family who live under the same roof, keep gatherings small, and please exercise tolerance and kindness for all. Everyone is tired. Everyone wants this pandemic to be over. But it is not and it still continues to wreak havoc on families. Not just nameless families but families in our own community. While you are celebrating and cherishing your loved ones, please know that your neighbors are mourning their losses. We know that not any ONE thing will mitigate this pandemic, but by layering the protections that we have (masks, vaccinations, social distancing, etc.), it DOES make a difference!
