CDC Recommendations for Holiday Celebrations

Updated: Dec 15, 2020

The Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has created an abundance of stress and confinement within individuals. While we get closer to the upcoming holiday celebrations it may seem like the ideal opportunity to reconnect with family and friends but the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is strongly discouraging doing so due to the large amount of risk it will propose with the increase in positive cases. .

According to the latest CDC update, more than 1 million COVID-19 cases were reported in the United States following Thanksgiving. As cases rapidly increase across the country, the safest way to celebrate the holiday season is with the people you live with. If you are attending a small gathering it is important to continue wearing face masks and practicing social distancing.

CDC offers the following considerations to slow the spread of COVID-19 during small gatherings:

Considerations for Small Gatherings of Family and Friends

Considerations for Hosting or Attending a Gathering

Food and Drinks at Small Holiday Gatherings

Travel and Overnight Stays

Considerations for Staying Overnight or Hosting Overnight Guests

Steps to Take if Exposed to COVID-19 During a Holiday Gathering

These considerations are meant to supplement—not replace—any state, local, territorial, or tribal health and safety laws, rules, and regulations with which all gatherings must comply.
