2020 Santa tracker is being COVID-safe, sporting mask

No Claus for concern.

Apparently, not even Santa is taking chances during the coronavirus pandemic, as new footage shows Saint Nick wearing PPE while delivering gifts to kids around the world.

Virtual Kris Kringle can be seen in North American Aerospace Defense Command’s 2020 Santa tracker — a website that keeps tabs on Father Christmas’ present-delivering pilgrimage each year — sporting a mask while rounding the globe with his reindeer.

Thankfully, kids need not fret about Santa spreading disease along with holiday cheer as Dr. Anthony Fauci — director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and Christmas Eve birthday boy — said he personally vaccinated Saint Nick at the North Pole.

Kids can follow Father Christmas’ joy-bringing journey live all day and night Thursday on the NORAD Tracks Santa website, as well as various apps for IOS and Android devices. They can also ask Amazon’s Alexa and OnStar to keep them abreast of the big man’s whereabouts.
