How to Host Safe Celebrations All Year Long
With 2022 under way and Covid-19 variants still very much a part of everyday life, many are feeling uncertain about hosting their typical celebrations this year. If you have already questioned throwing an event sometime this year, we’ve put together the following ideas and tips to ensure your guests remain healthy and have fun throughout the year!
For starters, you should follow the CDC’s guidelines anytime you are in doubt. Whether it’s online or via social media, the CDC provides powerful tools and information to keep the public safe. Regarding gatherings, the CDC recommends only with those who have been fully vaccinated attend. And while it may seem difficult to remove those who are unvaccinated from the guest list, it is among the best ways to prevent the spread of Covid-19. If you prefer not to exclude anyone, it is highly recommended that you ask those who are not vaccinated to quarantine before attending or to wear a mask when they are not eating or drinking.
Another idea for safe celebrations is to host an outdoor event. This allows for fresh open air to circulate and provides ample space for people to socially distance. Plus, renting heaters or setting up a firepit are both great ways to keep everyone warm in the winter months.
Ultimately, if you feel that the safest way to throw a party is to not have one at all, then consider hosting a virtual event! Plan a video call with everyone who would have attended and set up some drinks and snacks as if they were there. Not only does this guarantee everyone stays safe, but it also keeps the spirits high and brings everyone you love together!
