CDC Urges People Not To Sing When Gathering For The Holidays

If your family and friends are the singing type during the holiday gatherings, you may want to share the Centers for Disease Control’s recommendation which urges Americans who are hosting for the upcoming holiday season not to sing while gathering inside their homes and even protect their pets from interacting with guests.

According to the New York Times, the CDC made a list of recommendations that were added to its guidelines to help stop the spread of the novel coronavirus. Many believe the nation is approaching the second wave which has begun to spread at alarming rates ahead of the holiday season.

“Encourage guests to avoid singing or shouting, especially indoors. Keep music levels down so people don’t have to shout or speak loudly to be heard,” the CDC stated. Adding in, “Treat pets as you would other human family members – do not let pets interact with people outside the household.”

There have been a small number of reports that pets have contracted the virus that causes COVID-19 due to their interactions with people who had the virus, the agency reported. However, there is minimal risk that pets/animals spread the virus, it is a novel virus that we continue to learn more about, therefore people should added precautions—isolating themselves from animals if they get sick.

If weather permits, the CDC says hosting your Thanksgiving dinner outside is the best option, but still should put a limitation on the number of guests they allow into their space.
Be safe people!
