Letter: No in-person gatherings

To the Editor:

Jennifer Prell's Nov. 20 piece about in-person holiday gatherings was not only tone deaf, but dangerous. Running a story encouraging folks, particularly elders, to partake in in-person gatherings in the midst of a deadly pandemic that is surging again, was a bad call.

The CDC warns against holiday travel, advising people to keep it to your household and online visits with everyone else.

Perhaps the message should have been: "No in-person gatherings this year, but here is how to set up Zoom."
