In all the years Santa has been around, he has never had to face a global pandemic like this. Having flying reindeer and an endless pit for a stomach isn’t the only upsides of being St. Nick. Luckily, Santa is naturally immune to COVID-19. This is especially a big relief for children around the world.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said, “Santa is exempt from this because Santa, of all the good qualities, has a lot of good innate immunity.”

Even though the pandemic won’t take away anything from Santa’s magic, he is noticeably absent from as many malls and other areas as he’s been in past years.

In regards to this, Dr. Gina Song, a pediatrician at Northwestern Medicine Delnor Hospital, said: “Santa does not want the kids to line up waiting to see him because he doesn’t want to spread germs. Santa gets sad if the kids or their families are sick.” She then said the precautions are taken for everyone to be happy and healthy for Christmas morning.

Even the North Pole is feeling the effects. The elves are practicing safe social distancing, wearing masks, and are planning to take the vaccine once it is ready for them. Fortunately, toy production remains on schedule.

Mrs. Claus has also implemented a program of regular testing, and the reindeer now lead contact tracing.

With this great news, Christmas seems to be a greenlight and Christmas joy will be felt everywhere around the world.
