CDC has released considerations for Holiday Celebrations and Small Gatherings to help minimize risk and prevent the spread of COVID-19 as many across the country plan for holiday celebrations and small gatherings. The considerations were updated to reflect small and informal gatherings of family and friends from across multiple households that often occur during the holiday season. The Thanksgiving tip sheet is a resource to help people take steps to make their Thanksgivings safer. These considerations complement other resources to help minimize risk and keep family, friends, and communities safer.
CDC and the CDC Foundation have also provided resources to address stress and coping, and for parents and caregivers to help protect children and young people’s social, emotional, and mental health.
