The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said the surest way to say goodbye to the year and welcome the new one is to celebrate it at home with the people who live with you or virtually with friends and family.
“Staying home is the best way to protect yourself and others. Travel and meetings with family and friends who do not live with you can increase your chances of contracting and transmitting Covid-19 or the flu,” the CDC said in a guide posted on their website.
Virtual celebrations with loved ones and attending virtual concerts are from the recommendations given.
However, if you still decide to celebrate with people outside your family nucleus, the federal agency recalled the importance of the use of masks both for inside the house and for outdoor activities. Likewise, he reiterated the importance of spacing at least six feet.
On the other hand, they urged citizens to avoid spaces with crowds or where there is no good air ventilation.
If you organize a celebration, the agency recommended limiting the number of guests; keep the celebrations outdoors or if it is indoors, open the windows and doors.
“Have guests bring their own food, drinks, plates, cups, and utensils. Have additional unused masks available for your guests and encourage everyone to wear them in and out. Keep the volume of background music low so guests do not have to shout “, are other recommendations.
In addition, there are several activities that they ask to avoid. These are: alcohol and drugs that can alter judgment and make it difficult to practice Covid-19 security measures, as well as yelling and singing.
