Pandemic Holiday Connections

Ruby Van Meter Social Worker Heather Kerndt reminds us that planning for and celebrating the holidays brings a whole set of stresses to our lives.

2020 may be especially challenging with the pandemic, growing numbers of positive cases in Iowa and the CDC advice to celebrate in small family groups.

This page from the First 5 California website gives a few ideas of how to celebrate and make new traditions in ways that keep you connected to family and friends, no matter what holidays you celebrate.

Here’s to your resilience, patience and courage. Have a healthy and safe holiday season!
