EDITORIAL: Have a safe and healthy Thanksgiving break, Cards

As the fall semester starts to dwindle down, Thanksgiving is less than a week away. With the holiday season sneaking up, students are getting excited for time with their family and friends. 

The fall semester saw a wanted return to normalcy. With the mandate of the COVID-19 vaccine for students living on campus, cases remained in the single-digits throughout the semester. Students couldn’t be happier about the end of the semester.

This time last year, COVID cases were soaring. Once students tested negative, emails were sent out saying to pack up and go home as soon as possible. The last few weeks of classes were delivered remotely and some students didn’t return in the spring. 

Last year’s holiday season was celebrated separately. This year, people can finally see loved ones. Although students must return to campus after Thanksgiving break, this time it feels normal.

Even though the vaccine makes it safer to see family members, still take caution. If you aren’t feeling well, keep your distance from family members who are at risk. 

Staying safe and healthy should be a priority for the break. Take a mental health break and relax from the stressful semester. Even though it’s not over yet, there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

With the return to normalcy, enjoy being around loved ones and celebrate what you are thankful for. Take a break for yourself and think of the positives in your life.

Have a good break, Cardinals. You deserve it.
