Officials at the University of Minnesota Medical School are encouraging people to take precautions to remain healthy over the holidays. Doctor Jill Foster says the flu and COVID-19 vaccines will provide protection this winter:

“As the weather gets colder and people move inside and the holidays and gatherings associated with them occur. It just becomes simple math. We will have people who are sick with a variety of respiratory illnesses mixed with people who don’t have sufficient immunity to them and people are going to get sick.”

Doctor Foster recommends wearing a mask at large gatherings. She says many Minnesota hospitals are crowded with R-S-V, COVID and flu patients.
