Please count your blessings, health and safety from Covid as well as other holiday hazards need to be respected. Increased traffic, weather related highway surfaces, plus the need to be Covid safe. Continue to wear masks, social distance, wash hands, use sanitizer, avoid gatherings unless with your household and give thanks on this holiday.

Good news on Covid vaccines but that is months away so practice the basics: get your flu shot, stay home, don’t eat to much, exercise; take care of yourself and loved ones during this Covid Thanksgiving holiday.
