The holiday season is fast approaching, as BIOLIFE4D continues to progress towards commercializing our incredible technology, and everyone is learning to deal with COVID-19, the industry is hopeful to have new therapies and even vaccine candidates to put the COVID-19 pandemic behind us. All good news moving in the right direction, but everyone must be vigilant and avoid complacency.
Beginning early 2020 when Covid-19 suddenly appeared, our normal lives and the lives of our loved ones changed abruptly. As time passed, many began to follow the safety protocols put in place to help eliminate the spread of Covid-19. And all was going in the right direction. Unfortunately, in recent weeks the global pandemic is back on the rise. This upsurge comes at the busiest travel time of the year, the holiday season, leaving many of us with some really difficult decisions surrounding the risks of travel and gathering with our loved ones.
We all cherish the holiday season spent with family and loved ones, especially in times like these. But for those determined to travel, before you do, please make sure you reflect on your personal situation and circumstances and make the safe and informed decisions for you and your family.
Some, unfortunately, have circumstances such that – even though they long to be with their families and loved ones in person – will have to make the difficult decision to skip their holiday trip and in-person gatherings this year. For those who will be forced to make that decision it is a major disappointment for sure, but millions of others will also be making that same decision out of love for their friends and family.
Virtual holidays may not bring us the same heart felt connection we have all grown accustomed to but they do help bring some sense of “normality” back by enabling us to share important occasions with our loved ones. Given the current situation, many will choose to get together with their families virtually for the holidays and for many it is a worthwhile choice.
Whatever you choose to do we hope you, your families and your loved ones all have a safe, happy and healthy holiday season.
