Hearing fireworks in your neighborhood? You’re not alone. – Orange County Register
The Orange County Burn Center, located at OC Global Medical Center in Santa Ana, sees about 20 to 30 patients during a typical July 4th holiday, Dunkelman said.

Burns scar very quickly if they’re not treated.” She also wonders if the pandemic might help to stem the number of fireworks injuries. “Maybe there will be fewer with people staying home and not having big parties because of COVID,” she said.

Tests for COVID-19 can be hard to come by, but there are dozens of tests on the market that test for antibodies.
