 How Can I Safely Host Thanksgiving or Other Holidays?

Given the surge in COVID-19 cases, people should only celebrate holidays with members of their household. Indoor gatherings are a particularly common place for COVID-19 to spread.
• Keep holiday plans as small as possible. Less people = less loved ones at risk.
• Limit the number of attendees to allow for social distancing.
• Plan ahead and ask guests to avoid contact with people outside of their households for 14 days prior.
• Require guests to wear masks when not eating both outdoors and indoors.
• Host outdoor activities rather than indoor activities as much as possible.
• Increase ventilation by opening windows and doors.
• Provide attendees with supplies to stay health – extra masks, hand sanitizer, hand soap, tissues, and single use towels.
• Remind guests to stay home if they have been exposed to the virus recently.
