Ways to Safely Plan COVID Christmas
Reduce the Number of Guests
Although we all want to give as many gifts as possible, we will have to reign in our charitable natures this year. This means reducing the number of guests you invite for holiday celebrations, at least to the maximum specified for your region.
Plan for Testing Before & After
If you invite extended family or endearing friends to your celebration, encourage them to go for testing before and after the event. In doing this, they can ensure they are capable of socialization without spreading, and if there is infection afterwards, the contact tracing will be simple and straightforward.
See Fewer People Beforehand
For all the disadvantages of winter, there are also several discrete advantages. One of these is an excuse to reduce our social visits. This year, this is more important than ever, as we can now safely and responsibly refrain from seeing one another before large events. In this way, we reduce the potential spread of infection.
Consider Turkey Alternatives
Now, this might not relate to the pandemic, but it is an important and necessary tip to offer.
