The holiday season is here, unfortunately COVID is still around! Here are some tips to enjoy the season and stay safe. 

  • Consider virtual celebrations.  
  • Only celebrate with the people in your household. 
If you do have small celebrations that follow the state's guidelines, here are some tips:
  • Bring your own food, drinks, plates, cups, and utensils. 
  • Wear a mask, and safely store your mask while eating and drinking. 
  • Avoid going in and out of the areas where food is being prepared or handled, such as in the kitchen. 
  • Use single-use options, like salad dressing and condiment packets, and disposable items like food containers, plates, and utensils.
  • Have a small outdoor meal with family and friends who live in your community. 
  • Limit the number of guests. 
  • Have conversations with guests ahead of time to set expectations for celebrating together. 
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces and items between use. 
  • If celebrating indoors, make sure to open windows. 
  • Limit the number of people in food preparation areas. 
  • Have guests bring their own food and drink. 
  • If sharing food, have one person serve food and use single-use options, like plastic utensils.
