Be Safe Through the Holidays | Manténgase Seguro Durante los Días Festivos

The Division of Public Health recommends Delawareans take the following actions to prevent further spread of infection in the community:

  • Only dine socially (at home and in restaurants) with those who live with you
  • Don’t spend time socially with people outside your household
  • Don’t plan on holding holiday dinners with those outside your household – even family

“What we can see in our data is that social gatherings, whether at a house party, casual dinner, or restaurant, where people take off their masks while they eat, drink and chat, are the primary situations in which COVID-19 is being spread,” said DPH Director Dr. Karyl Rattay. “It is just not safe right now to socially eat, drink, casually hang out or party with people outside of our household unless we are socially distanced and outside.”
