CDC Releases New Guidelines On How To Celebrate Safe Next Vacation During Pandemic
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has released new guidelines on how to celebrate safely while on vacation.
First of all, they say you are fully vaccinated if you are eligible. The CDC also recommends hosting a video chat night as opposed to an in-person rally.
But if you are attending a gathering in another house, parties outside are always safer than those inside.
They usually say you don’t need your mask at outdoor celebrations. You should always wear a mask in indoor public places and indoor parties.
If you’re having an indoor party, try opening a window and letting in some fresh air. You can even use a fan to blow air out the window so more air enters through open windows. And as always, if you’re not feeling well, stay home.
