The safest way to celebrate holidays is at home with the people who live with you. Travel and gatherings with family and friends who do not live with you can increase your chances of getting or spreading COVID-19 or the flu.

Take Care of Yourself

  • Being away from family and friends during the holidays can be hard.
  • When you talk with your friends and family about plans, it’s okay if you decide to stay home and remain apart from others.

Do What’s Best for Your Household

  • Doing what’s best for you includes eating healthy foods and getting enough sleep.
  • Take care of your body and stay active to lessen fatigue, anxiety, and sadness.

Spend Time with Those in Your Household
