The safest way to celebrate the winter holidays during the pandemic is to celebrate at home with people who live with you. But, if you are traveling, welcoming college students home or having guests stay for the holidays, the CDC offers suggestions on steps to take to minimize risk including the following:

*Ask guests to get a viral COVID-19 test 1-3 days before their trip. Postpone the visit if the test is positive.

*Wear masks inside the house. Removed only for eating, drinking and sleeping.

*Wash hands regularly, especially when arriving.

*Stay at least 6 feet from each other at all times.

*Improve ventilation by opening windows and doors or by placing central air and heating on continuous circulation.
