Commentary Offers Suggestions To Combat Isolation Amid Pandemic.

November 25, 2020

In an opinion piece for the Washington Examiner (11/25), Rusty Wright, “an author and lecturer who has spoken on six continents,” writes, “Zoomed out? Exasperated by isolation? Longing for face-to-face human interaction beyond your home? You’re not alone. Such craving is widespread, and holiday-induced loneliness brings additional challenges.” Holidays usually “bring loads of in-person events and interactions,” but holidays during the pandemic “will be different.” NIAID Director Anthony Fauci “explained that his three daughters were not coming home for Thanksgiving due to COVID-19 concerns. Ditto for National Institutes of Health Director Dr. Francis Collins and his extended family.” Wright offers some “helpful” suggestions “to battle pandemic isolation and loneliness.”
