St. Louis County Issues Public Health Advisory as Thanksgiving Weekend Approaches
ST. LOUIS COUNTY, MO (November 23, 2020) – COVID is everywhere in our community, and it is running rampant in much of the country. The virus that causes COVID-19 is spread through air droplets and aerosols that we exhale. We know that it spreads more easily indoors, where people expel moving clouds of air droplets, and that it spreads very efficiently if people are close together without wearing masks.
For those reasons, we are today issuing a Public Health Advisory in advance of Thanksgiving.
This year, we ask all St. Louis County residents to be especially intentional about how they celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday. Please take the following advice to heart so that you can protect your loved ones as well as your community:
We have much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving season. And as we give thanks for our loved ones and our community, we must continue to protect them from the spread of COVID-19.
