Times Citizen Editor Sara Konrad Baranowski sat down for another conversation with Dr. Katie Haverkamp of Iowa Falls Clinic and Hansen Family Hospital to talk about coronavirus.

They discussed the holidays - whether it's safe to gather with family, and how college students can return home without unknowingly spreading COVID-19 to family. They also discussed a change in testing locally, antibody testing availability, and what you can do to boost your immune system this time of year.

In the video, Dr. Haverkamp speaks about CDC holiday guidelines, which can be found here. She also discusses an episode of On Point, a program from WBUR public radio. That episode, called "The On Point Coronavirus Task Force" can be found here.
