• This report represents a weekly update to our case numbers to correct reported cases that were duplicates, out-of-county records, or people who were previously counted but later turned out to not be a case.

• It’s a potentially uncomfortable but important conversation this year: The COVID chat.
o Be clear: Say “no” to anything that could increase risk for you or the people you care about
o Offer alternatives: Ask if there’s another way to connect with family and share the experience
o Drop off holiday meals for older loved ones and those with medical conditions, so they can stay home
o Plan safe celebrations well in advance, then stick to the plan
o Be honest: Remind people you care about them and need to take precautions for everyone’s health
o Plan celebrations with multiple households
o Make someone feel guilty for not wanting to gather in person
o Ridicule someone for wanting to take precautions
o Feel pressured to take risks you’re not comfortable with
o Forget to be compassionate, even when turning down an invitation
