The Healthy Host: Tips On Hosting Safe Holiday Parties
Published: 18:33 PM, December 09, 2022
The holiday season is a time for us to meet our loved ones and celebrate the year that was. However, that shouldn’t mean becoming complacent regarding our safety, especially since these gatherings will place us within close proximity to other people, increasing the risk of infection. With that in mind, we have a few tips to help you and your family stay safe as you host your get-togethers.
Keep the air flowing.
Proper ventilation is one of the key ways to ensure bacteria and viruses don’t linger inside your home. While you have guests indoors, it’s best to keep your doors and windows open and point your electric fans at these openings, blowing outside. If you have exhaust fans, turn them on for the duration of your gathering and until an hour after your guests have left.
Limit the number of guests.
We suggest keeping your gatherings small and intimate. In cases where this isn’t an option, though, make sure everyone is masked up and stays in the largest, most well-ventilated space in your home.
Of course, meeting outdoors is far safer than meeting indoors, since proper ventilation isn’t an issue anymore. Try meeting in a courtyard, garden, or any open-air event space, and remember to practice physical distancing while you’re there!
Vax when possible.
The best way to prevent infections and protect your most at-risk guests is vaccination. Because of this, it’s ideal to request that all your guests be fully-vaccinated before they come to your gathering.
Maintain a balanced immune system.
Even with all our preparations, we still can’t fully eliminate the risk of infection when we actually meet people face-to-face. That’s why it pays to have a balanced immune system when we do, so that our immunity is in optimum form to protect us. For situations like these, we recommend Immunomax with CM-Glucan!
More than just the bad weather, the wet season also comes with many threats on the health of your kids. The good thing is there are things that could help prevent your children from getting sick. And when you find the right balance in doing all these things, your kids stay safe and healthy during the rainy days.
