castro holidayELGIN – With the 2020 Holiday Season occurring during a global health pandemic, State Senator Cristina Castro (D-Elgin) is reminding residents to celebrate safely over the coming weeks.

“The holiday season can be just as fun and festive when done virtually,” Castro said. “I know that we all miss our families and are starving for some human contact after three seasons of quarantining, but it’s important to keep practicing safety during the next few weeks as we celebrate this holiday season.”

The Illinois Department of Public Health Center for Disease Control still recommends avoiding large groups and staying at home as often as you can, and wearing masks and practicing social distancing when this is not possible.

“Large holiday gatherings can be super-spreader events that could put you and your loved ones at risk,” Castro said. “Let’s remember to be safe so that everyone stays healthy, and we can beat the COVID-19 pandemic. And, I’d like to wish everyone who celebrates a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!”
