I am also visitng my 85 year old Grandma and I am scared shitless. But I also know I will do "my part". Isolate for 5 days, do a test, use an FPP2 mask while traveling. I cannot do more, I guess.

I hope the Vitamin D helps. Make sure to take it in large doses (2000 units per day during food). My grandma drinks it in bottles...

Recommended on the bottle is 1000/day. Should I double up?

Did you do a recent Vit D blood test?

I would do a week of double and then back to 1000.

Haven't had a blood test in a while, and right now it's the worst time to go to a hospital. I'll follow your advice - most people in Canada seem to have a deficiency and the (unlikely) negative effects of a surplus seem minor.
