Thanksgiving is known as a time to gather with loved ones, but how should that be done in the middle of a pandemic?

This year has pushed families to get creative in their celebrations with the safety of others in mind; Thanksgiving and the upcoming holidays seem to hold the same stature.

DeWitt County Attorney Jay Condie and Hays Outdoor Real Estate Agent Selena Milstead face the same crossroads many others will this holiday season: do we still gather?

The couple was featured in The Record back in April as they recovered from the coronavirus. Coming out with their experiences with the virus (case numbers four and five) helped end some societal stigma surrounding the virus early on. 

Milstead and Condie contracted the novel coronavirus in March, and while Condie had a less severe case, Milstead was hospitalized for a short time.

“There are some discussions about residual effects of COVID-19 or not,” said Condie during an interview.

Since contracting the virus, Milstead has dealt with other health issues that were not apparent before March.

“I’ve had some concerning health issues that we don’t know are contributed to COVID-19 or not,” said Milstead.

As for getting the virus again, the two have continued to remain precautious in getting back to their lives.
