Safer Holiday Celebrations During COVID-19

The safest way to celebrate this year is virtually or with members of your household.

If you choose to celebrate with others in person, take action to keep yourself and your loved ones safe:

  • Isolate as much as possible before your gathering.

  • Stay home if you feel sick or if you test positive for COVID-19.

  • Wear a face covering the entire time, except when eating or drinking.

  • Maintain at least six feet of distance from people outside of your household.

  • Keep the gathering small (3 households maximum) and short (2 hours or less).

  • Outdoors is safer than indoors. Dress for the outdoors, meet during the warmest part of the day, or use blankets and patio heaters.   

  • If you have to move indoors, open windows and doors to improve airflow.

Celebre los Días Festivos de una Manera Más Segura Durante el COVID-19

La manera más segura de celebrar este año es de forma virtual o con los miembros de su hogar.

Si usted decide celebrar con otros en persona, tome acciones para mantenerse seguro a sí mismo y a sus seres queridos:

  • Manténgase aislado lo más que pueda antes de su reunión.

  • Quédese en casa si usted está enfermo o si da positivo en la prueba de COVID-19.

  • Utilice una mascarilla facial todo el tiempo, excepto al comer o beber.

  • Mantenga una distancia mínima de seis pies de otras personas que no pertenezcan a su hogar.

  • La reunión debe ser pequeña (máximo 3 hogares) y breve (2 horas o menos).

  • Es más seguro reunirse al aire libre que en interiores. Vístase adecuadamente para las reuniones al aire libre, reúnase durante la parte más calurosa del día o utilice mantas y calentadores de patio.  

  • Si usted tiene que pasarse al interior, abra las puertas y ventanas para mejorar la circulación del aire.
