The Osterholm Quote

"You know, this is our Covid year. Let's accept it. It's not like last year and it's not, hopefully, going to be like next year....So if you really love the people that you have in your immediate family...think through this. And actually do them the greatest gift of all and that is distance yourself this year and don't expose them."
