Arizona’s top health official said she’s “highly concerned” that the state will see a COVID-19 spike after the Thanksgiving holiday.
“With the increase that’s going on around the nation and people coming home, like from colleges, to Arizona, Thanksgiving has me highly concerned that about 10 to 14 days after Thanksgiving, we will see a significant increase,” Dr. Cara Christ, director of the state’s Department of Health Services, told KTAR News 92.3 FM’s The Mike Broomhead Show on Thursday.
“So again, we’re reminding Arizonans that Thanksgiving may look a little different this year than it has in the past.”
Christ said people of all ages need to keep their guards up during holiday get-togethers, even if not at a high risk for serious illness, “because you probably have someone you love who is.”
