The next joys-of-lifetargets in COVID-19′s sights?: Thanksgiving dinner, Christmas open houses and other traditionally indoor house parties.
With new coronavirus case counts surging past springtime peaks in recent days, Pennsylvanias state Health Secretary Dr. Rachel Levine earlier this week made an appeal to Pennsylvanians, as they plan for this years holiday season, to think seriously about hosting or attending any events with people who you dont already live with.
Unfortunately, in this time of the global pandemic of COVID 19, as we approach the holidays, we need to rethink those gatherings. We need to think about more and more gatherings being virtual, or only staying with your family that you live with, that youre exposed to all the time, Levine said.
Thats a sacrifice, but I think that sacrifice can mean that people dont get sick in your family and in your community, and it would be worth it.
Levines comments were intended as guidance, not mandates.
But still, they put in stark relief the prospect for the ongoing pandemic - which has already reshaped weddings, graduations, summer celebrations - to reshape customary social patterns through the Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons.
The fall resurgence is not, the secretary said, due solely to people gathering at high school football games or restaurants or bars or fitness centers.
Often, its just being with your friends.

I hear that many of our Teenage Americans are having a hard time with all this sheltering and isolating. My guess is most would rather be going to school and spending time around their friends. Adult-Free Peer groups are very important to most adolescents.
How do these people get elected?
Soaring cases all over the country the week before Election Day. I may just be a tad skeptical.
