Guidance for holiday celebrations

December 3, 2021  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

In-person, unmasked holiday gatherings for units/departments in the health system and patient care areas are not permitted. 

Food can be provided to health care workers or brought in to share but should be either individually wrapped or served in a manner to avoid potential cross-contamination. 

Hand hygiene should be performed prior to serving or distributing food. Food should be consumed in designated areas while appropriately distanced from others (6 feet). Congregating and removing masks within 6 feet of others poses a significant exposure risk.

Thank you for your cooperation.
