“The advice I’ve given my patients is that this is the year to be thinking hard about visiting your family,” said Julita Mir, an internist and infectious disease specialist at the nonprofit Community Care Cooperative. “Put it into perspective. Weigh the value against the potential consequences. Even with the best of intentions, traveling to see mom or grandma could be the worst thing you could do. Maybe the best thing you could do is to come up with an alternative celebration.”
