Dr. Carol Fox is worried about the holidays.
She watches the rising coronavirus caseload in Westmoreland County and keeps daily tabs on the numbers that are impacting Excela Health, where she is chief medical officer. As the toll from family visits over Thanksgiving becomes more clear, she said she is expecting Christmas to be “Thanksgiving on steroids.”
“It’s just important that we stand our ground and remain at home,” she said.
Meanwhile, Dave Peach is encouraging people to visit their families for Christmas through a sign in front of Peaches ’N Cream, his Hempfield ice cream stand on Route 30 — despite state and federal health officials recommending the opposite.
