The 2020 holiday season is before us, but the Alexandria Health Department is advising residents to stay home.
For thousands of residents, the annual fall and winter celebrations are heartwarming chances for friends and family to reconnect, however this year has been all about limited gatherings.
“The safest way to enjoy the holidays while COVID-19 remains in the community is to find ways to celebrate at home,” the city said in a release.
Last year, an estimated 1.34 million travelers in the D.C. area traveled 50 miles or more from their homes for the Thanksgiving holiday.
For unavoidable get togethers, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends:
- Participating in outdoor activities, which are are safer than indoor activities
- Checking with the event hostabout any COVID-19 safety guidelines
- Bringing extra masks (do not share or swap with others), hand sanitizer and tissues
- Avoiding contact with people outside of your household for 14 days before the gathering
