IDPH Releases COVID-19 Holiday Season Safety Guide

The Illinois Department of Public Health is offering guidance for getting through the holidays safely during the pandemic. State Health Director Doctor Ngozi Ezike says this year is going to take some extra planning. She says the safest way to celebrate is with members of your household and connecting with others virtually. Doctor Ezike advises everyone to wear a mask when not eating or drinking, holding gatherings outside if the weather allows, and increasing airflow inside by cracking windows.
