Holiday Gatherings Food For Thought

As with many activities in 2020, the holiday season will look a bit different and will be a bit more complicated to navigate. Our friends at Central Carolina Hospital provide these tips to keep in mind if you are preparing an in-person event for Thanksgiving or the rest of the holiday season. By following this guidance, we can celebrate as safely as possible and do what we can to protect our health and make our community – and our holidays – as healthy as possible.

  • Limit the number of attendees as much as possible.
  • Hold as much of your festivities outside as you can. For indoor activities, where possible, keep windows and doors open to help with ventilation.
  • Provide supplies like extra masks, hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol content and tissues to help your guests practice safe behaviors when gathered together (or encourage attendees to bring their own).
  • Consider asking guests to wear masks when they are not actively eating and drinking, particularly in an environment where social distancing will be difficult.
