(NATIONAL) It’s officially winter, and Christmas week to boot. With cases of COVID-19 showing no signs of stopping, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has issued guidance on the best ways to celebrate while keeping yourself and your loved ones safe. For holiday travel, the best recommendation they have is “don’t”. If you must, the CDC says don’t visit people at high-risk for getting very sick. They also recommended checking travel restrictions in that area. For any ventures outside of your home, experts recommend getting a flu shot, wearing a mask, and washing your hands frequently. People are also advised to stay six feet away from those who do not live with them, and to gather outside if you must gather with others outside of your home. The CDC also offered some festive alternatives to gathering indoors with others, like playing outside in the snow, having a virtual holiday party, and decorating your space with art and decor to increase the holiday cheer.
