This holiday season is unique because of COVID-19 and social distancing guidelines. While social distancing continues to be implemented, that does not mean that families cannot enjoy the holiday season. Visiting Angels Northern Neck-Middle Peninsula discusses how families can celebrate the holidays during COVID-19.
Visiting Angels NNMP brings up five questions that you should ask yourself before planning anything for the holidays. First, you should ask yourself if you know how many COVID-19 cases are in your community. If you do not know, you should do some research do find out the most recent number of cases in your community. If the number of cases are high, then it would not be safe to either host a celebration or attend a celebration.
On the other hand, if you are planning to celebrate with a small number of people, you should still consider the venue. Will there be enough space for everyone to practice social distancing? Will you provide disinfectant for everyone? What will you do if a guest does not wear a mask? Maybe you should also consider the benefits of hosting a virtual celebration.
