There’s so much more to consider this festive season than whose turn it is to host Christmas lunch, who’s cooking what and who’s responsible for taking old Uncle Billy home after he’s had a nip too many of the holiday brandy.
This year it’s a whole new ballgame due to the cloud that Covid-19 has cast over everything. And while it may be tempting to let our guard down now the weather is warm and the initial panic feels like it’s over, it’s vital we aren’t lulled into a false sense of security.
Covid-19 is still all around. The death toll is rising daily and new infections and hotspots are springing up all the time. Officials and experts have warned it’s more important than ever to be careful as the holidays loom, lockdown fatigue deepens and social activities increase.
