Yesterday, Dr. Anthony Fauci said it’s too early to tell if Christmas gatherings are ok this year. He walked it back today by claiming he didn’t mean what he said. Here is what he said:

It’s just too soon to tell. We’ve just gotta concentrate on continuing to get those numbers down and not try to jump ahead by weeks or months and say what we’re gonna do at a particular time.”

Dr. Fauci may have walked back his comments about Christmas, but the CDC is jumping the gun.

The CDC just released their guidelines for Americans for the ‘Holiday Season .’ They’re not pushing togetherness.

The CDC says the best way to protect yourself from COVID is to stay away from family during the Holidays. No gathering unless it’s ‘virtual gatherings’ with extended family or just celebrating with immediate family.

One of the funnier guidelines is to ‘avoid crowds’ during the ‘Holiday Season’

Practice Social

Stay at least 6 feet from
other people who are
not from your household
in both indoor and
outdoor spaces.
Avoid crowds.

The most outrageous recommendation is to gather outside and stay six feet apart, but open all windows and doors if you gather indoors. It’s December…Brrrrr!

The CDC suggests talking to family and friends about what to do.

We’d like to know if anyone is doing anything different because of COVID during the Holiday Season. Are you staying home? Traveling?
