Ways to Make Holiday Celebrations Safer

Celebrating virtually or with the people you live with is the safest choice. If you do gather with people who don’t live with you, gatherings and activities held outdoors are safer than indoor gatherings.

 In addition to following the steps that everyone can take to make the holidays safer, take these additional steps if attending a gathering to make your celebration safer:

  • Have conversations ahead of time to understand expectations for celebrating together.
  • Bring your own food, drinks, plates, cups, and utensils.
  • Wear a mask indoors and outdoors.
  • Avoid shouting or singing.

If Hosting:

  • If you are sick or have been near someone who thinks they may have or have been exposed to COVID-19, cancel the gathering.
  • Provide single-use options, like salad dressing and condiment packets, and disposable items like plates and utensils.
  • Limit the number of guests.
  • Have extra unused masks available for your guests and encourage everyone to wear them inside and outside.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces and items between use.
  • If celebrating indoors, bring in fresh air by opening windows and doors, if possible. You can use a window fan in one of the open windows to blow air out of the window. This will pull fresh air in through the other open windows.
  • Have a separate space for guests to wash their hands or provide hand sanitizer.
