Celebrating the Holiday Season in 2020

At this point in the year, we are all likely making preparations for Thanksgiving and Christmas. For the next couple of weeks, you’ll be finalizing your holiday dinner menus and your Christmas shopping list. Like everything in 2020, your celebrations this year will look different thanks to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Below, we’re giving you our tips to ensure your holiday season goes smoothly and safely.

 

Travel

For the majority of the year, there have been travel restrictions. These restrictions are beginning to be lifted and people are likely to begin traveling. At this time, it is not recommended people travel since it can increase the spread of COVID-19. If it is necessary to travel, be sure to take the proper precautions. This includes wearing a mask, using hand sanitizer, and social distancing when possible. You can explore tips on how to travel safely on our previous blog post!

 

Shopping 

This year, there has been a massive shift to online shopping versus shopping in-person. With holiday shopping commencing, people will see an influx of online shopping, potentially leading to items being sold out. If you find yourself in a position to shop in-person, be sure to wear a mask and socially distance when possible.

 

Gatherings

As we mentioned at the start, this holiday season looks different for everyone. The biggest difference is the lack of social gatherings people will be having and attending this year. Due to the coronavirus, gatherings should be limited to only your immediate household. By limiting your gathering you will reduce the spread of the coronavirus. To ensure you are creating the safest and healthiest space possible, be sure to wipe down high-touch zones in your home with disinfectant wipes.
