The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has updated its guidelines for how to more safely celebrate the holidays amid the second year of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

In its updated online guidance, the CDC suggested hosting events outdoors or virtual celebrations, wearing a mask if not fully vaccinated and using fans by open windows and doors to keep the air at indoor gatherings fresh.

The agency warns against people traveling unless they are fully vaccinated and wearing masks on public transportation.

“The safest way to celebrate is virtually, with people who live with you, or outside and at least six feet apart from others,” the CDC wrote.
