#SaludTues Tweetchat 12/15: Juntos Let’s Stop the Spread of COVID-19 This Holiday Season

As the end of 2020 draws near and the holiday season continues, it’s important to take some time to think about how Latinos and all families over can practice safety this holiday season.

Should we travel or join our loved ones via video chat instead? How can we practice safety measures if we live in a multigenerational household?

These are questions many Latinos are asking so it’s important to have a plan and be ready to have these important conversations with family members.
