Santa is exempt from this because Santa, of all the good qualities, has a lot of good innate immunity,” Fauci told USA Today. “…Santa is not going to be spreading any infections to anybody.”

  • This will mark the first time in nearly 160 years that Santa Claus won’t be posing for pictures at Macy’s — but the department store brand has set up a great virtual option where kids can sign up for visits to “Santaland” at home.
  • Some stores and malls are setting up ways for children to take contactless photos, allowing for six feet of distancing between Santa and his guests.
  • is offering free, 50-minute virtual visits.
