For the second straight year, it appears the coronavirus pandemic may upset family gatherings and holiday celebrations. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has released its recommendations for the upcoming holiday season saying it would prefer Americans not gather indoors with loved ones or visitors this winter.

According to NBC News, the CDC seems to be repeating many of its guidelines from last year. The agency suggests people get together only with members of a household, meet remote family and friends virtually or, host an outdoor celebration where everyone can follow social distance measures.

Additionally, the CDC is doubling down on its urging for Americans to get vaccinated and reminding people to wear face coverings, even outdoors, in areas of high spread or if you don’t know the vaccination status of others.

If you will be hosting a holiday gathering, the CDC suggests using a window fan to keep the indoor air as fresh as possible. Its guidance states: “You can use a window fan in one of the open windows to blow air out of the window. This will pull fresh air in through the other open windows.”

The Seniors Trust is committed to improving the lives of seniors by working to improve Social Security. It wants to see Congress pass the Social Security Expansion Act. This landmark piece of legislation will provide bigger monthly Social Security benefits, establish a more realistic cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) for seniors, and guarantee the long-term solvency of the Social Security program.
