Holidays, Traditions and COVID-19

We have learned to rethink our approach to everyday activities, but with the holidays around the corner modifying traditions can be hard to do. The CDC provides detailed guidelines for safe holiday party planning during COVID including a list of risk factors to consider beforehand:

  • Location and duration of the gathering
  • Number and crowding of people
  • Behaviors of people
  • Traveling to see family

For many of us who have families overseas or across the country, the last risk factor of traveling to spend the holidays with your family can be an overwhelming decision these days. Holiday traditions are certainly difficult to manage during COVID times, but for now, a Zoom holiday party will be the safest choice. 

Let’s be grateful for what we have this year, cheers to 2020, and “Salud” for a safer and better 2021!
