Hosting or Attending a Gathering During COVID-19

If you will be hosting or attending a gathering during the holiday season, consider the following tips to do so as safely as possible:
  • Check the COVID-19 infection rates in areas where attendees live.
  • Limit the number of attendees.
  • Host outdoor rather than indoor gatherings as much as possible. 
  • Clean and disinfect commonly touched surfaces and any shared items.
  • Limit contact with commonly touched surfaces or shared items such as serving utensils.
  • Ask guests to avoid contact with people outside of their households for 14 days before the gathering.
  • Increase ventilation by opening windows and doors (weather permitting), or by placing central air and heating on continuous circulation.
  • Require guests to wear masks and encourage frequent hand washing.
