Before Traveling this Holiday Season Ask Yourself the Following:
1. Is COVID-19 spreading at your destination?
2. Are you or someone you live with at an increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19?
3. Does your destination have requirements or restrictions for travelers?
If you plan to have guests in your home, The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention officials say these are the steps you can take to make it safer:
• Have a small outdoor meal with family and friends who live in your community.
• Limit the number of guests.
• Have conversations with guests ahead of time to set expectations for celebrating together.
• Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces and items between use.
• If celebrating indoors, make sure to open windows.
• Limit the number of people in food preparation areas.
• Have guests bring their own food and drink.
• If sharing food, have one person serve food and use single-use options, like plastic utensils.
