All December celebrations will look different this year. Celebrate with your immediate household or core bubble. Single people may host their core bubble in their home or go to the homes of people in their core bubble.

  • You must not host gatherings with people outside of your core bubble or household
  • Do not look for loopholes or excuses to gather
  • Consider hosting virtual parties and religious services
  • Unwrap gifts over Zoom or Skype
  • Grandparents who provide regular childcare for their grandchildren can spend time together over the holidays

If you must travel for essential reasons, review the health and safety precautions

Allowed activities

These activities are not considered a social gathering:

    • Going for a walk. You must make sure a walk does not turn into a group of people meeting outside
    • Parents carpooling kids to and from school
    • Grandparents providing child care
    • Public pools and public skating rinks, when not associated with an event, are allowed to continue to operate with a COVID-19 Safety Plan
