Public health officials have released a set of guidelines for the second pandemic December holiday season. The guidance, which Doctor Kieran Moore shared yesterday, says groups of fully vaccinated people don’t need to wear masks at indoor holiday gatherings if everyone is comfortable. However, it’s recommended that people wear masks and physically distance from others if meeting with people from multiple households who aren’t vaccinated, are partially vaccinated or their vaccination status isn’t known. Among other recommendations, public health officials are also advising hosts to keep indoor gatherings within the provincial limit of 25 people, keep windows open and ask people not to attend if they have symptoms of COVID-19.
