Do all you can to keep the people you care about safe.

 

Coming together to celebrate our traditions with family and friends is important. Especially after what we’ve all been through in the past year. But it’s just as important to be smart about how we celebrate. COVID-19 doesn’t take a holiday. Do all you can to keep the people you care about safe.

 

 

Follow these recommendations:

  • Get vaccinated for COVID-19 before gathering with family or friends.
  • Wear a face mask in public indoor settings regardless of vaccination status (ages 2 and older).
  • Get tested for COVID-19
    • 1-2 days before celebrating with people from multiple households and different parts of the country.
    • If you have symptoms of COVID-19
    • If you are a close contact of someone who has it
  • Do not go to a hospital ER for a COVID test – there are many more options statewide – save hospital ERs for emergencies!
  • Do not go to, or host a gathering, or go visit family or friends if you feel sick!  Stay home. Prevent the spread.  Get a COVID-19 test.
  • Smaller gatherings are better than larger gatherings, allowing you to maintain social distancing.
  • Communicate COVID-19 ground rules to invited guests, including expectations for testing before gathering, as well as vaccination or masking requirements.
  • Gather outdoors when possible. Avoid crowded, poorly ventilated spaces. Celebrating virtually (with cocktails at home; no designated driver required) can be a fun alternative.
  • Wash your hands regularly.

 

Do not travel unnecessarily unless you and your companions are fully vaccinated. Individuals who are not fully vaccinated and must travel should follow CDC’s domestic travel or international travel recommendations.
