Dozens of children may have been exposed to COVID-19 while having their photos taken with “Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus” at the Long County Chamber of Commerce’s annual Christmas parade Thursday. County Commission Chairman Robert Parker told CBS Savannah, Georgia affiliate WTOC-TV the two people portraying the jolly couple tested positive for COVID-19 on Saturday.
Long County said in a statement that roughly 50 kids were involved. Parker said his two were among them.
The Long County School System is asking parents to keep children who were there or show symptoms home until after the new year, though schools will remain open.
****For those who have NO CLUE how COVID-19 spreads or what asymptomatic versus symptomatic means, go here to educate yourselves, PLEASE!
It’s very important that we stay home this holiday season and not host gatherings of any kind or number until we can control the spread of this deadly virus. Just because someone isn’t feeling ill or experiencing any of the classic symptoms of the deadly Trumpvirus, it doesn’t mean he or she is COVID-19 free. Just ask Santa and Mrs. Claus. STOP THE SPREAD!
