Today’s Action: Plan a SAFE holiday season

Infection rates in the United States are growing at horrifying speeds; after hitting 10 million cases about a week ago, we reached 11 million just six days later. Our hospitalizations are at new record highs, and many are already full.

And this is happening before the major holiday season hits. The Thanksgiving holiday is coming up next weekend, immediately followed by the launch of the extended Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa/New Years Eve season. We have seen significant increases in cases following every major holiday since the pandemic began – and one by-county tracker can tell you your current chances of gathering with an infected person (hover your mouse over your county for the exact percentage).

It’s time to have the difficult family and community discussions about adjusting your usual gatherings. When it comes to this virus, none of us are the exception to the rule.

Holidays over the internet. This is, by far, the only truly safe way to gather with your loved ones. Love them…by limiting their infection chances. Zoom is offering free, unlimited video conferencing for the entire day on Thanksgiving – so plan ahead to teach your less tech-savvy family members how to use it! Brainstorm now how to make your holidays a special day, whether it’s cooking the same dishes in separate locations, watching a movie together via Teleparty, or teaching your family Zoom games!

Holidays outside. If you’re considering an in-person gathering, it should be outside, limited to a very small number of people, maintaining six-feet social distancing and masks, and executing a vigilant plan for how you’re handling shared serving utensils and restrooms. Ask everyone to take a test in advance – but still act as if you haven’t. If these suggestions feel extreme or overly-cautious, remember that our current mediocre and lax health advice has been strong-armed by the virus-denying Trump Administration for nine months…and we’re at 11 million confirmed cases as a result.

Holiday shopping. Obviously, internet shopping has been around for a long time – major businesses like Amazon.com have banked thanks to the shutdowns. However, this pandemic has crippled local small businesses – and many are now relying on a strong holiday season to stay in existence. Many small businesses have adapted, creating safe curbside pickup options for phone and internet orders. Commit to a local/small-business holiday gift plan this year, and make the extra effort to take advantage of their safe shopping procedures.

The pandemic doesn’t need to cancel your holidays. Instead, it’s an opportunity to explore a new way to celebrate your family traditions, while doing your part to save the lives of those you love and those you’ll never meet.
