Now officials in Ludowici, Georgia, must grapple with an unsettling aftermath: The guests of honour tested positive for Covid-19 two days after the event on December 10.

Parker said the pair, who didn't display any symptoms during the event, portrayed the Clauses for "many years" and had good intentions.

Parker said the exposure is cause for concern but said "exposures happen every day". "Children are in close contact with both other children and adults daily at school, recreation functions and church". "Proper CDC exposure guidelines should be followed if your child was exposed, however I do not feel this incident is cause for panic". It is the county seat of Long County as it is the county's only incorporated municipality.

The Long County School District has asked that children who may have been exposed to the virus to stay home until after winter break, and has already instituted an option "learn-at-home" option due to the increase in quarantined students.

An official of the World Health Organization has reassured children around the world that Santa Claus will be able to travel around the world to deliver presents despite the pandemic.

Organizer Matt Dufour told Morinville Online that Santa will be waving at the kids, who can give Santa their Christmas letters, let him know what they want under the tree and even take some socially-distanced pictures with him.

"They have both filled these roles for many years, and bringing joy to children during the holidays is one of the most important parts of their lives", Parker said.
