Thanksgiving during COVID-19
• As Thanksgiving approaches next week, DPH has published recommendations on its website about higher and lower risk celebrations and activities. Their recommendations include:
o Avoid shaking hands and hugging. Wave and verbally greet others instead.o Wear a mask when not eating or drinking.o Avoid sharing food and drinks.o Avoid singing, dancing, and shouting. These activities increase chances of catching COVID-19 through the air.o Wash your hands often with soap and water.o Stay at least six feet apart from others.o Avoid in-person gatherings with people at a higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19, such as older adults and people with certain medical conditions.o If gathering indoors, improve ventilation by opening windows and doors.
• As Tom mentioned, indoor gatherings at private residences are currently limited to 10 people.
• Please be safe and responsible this holiday season.
