The holiday season is a time for joy, love, family, and friends. This time of year is typically when we take time off work to surround ourselves with our loved ones and give thanks for all of the good that we’ve experienced the past year. In 2020, however, things are looking a little different.

Since October, COVID cases have begun to spike again, sending the country into a bit of a frenzy, making us wonder how we can get this virus under control. The most straightforward way we’ve seen is by social distancing from one another, but this can be difficult to maintain, especially during the holiday season.

If you’re planning on having a small holiday gathering this season, keep reading for our helpful guide to hosting guests during this season of COVID-19.

Limit the Capacity of Your Party

When creating your guest list this year, pay attention to how many people from different households you’re inviting, and try to limit it. Guests from the same household are less likely to transmit anything new to one of their household members. However, if you have multiple households in attendance, there’s a much greater risk of interhousehold transmission.

Keep the Party Outdoors

If you are hosting a gathering this year, keep in mind how much space you have. You don’t want your guests packed into your home like sardines in a can. Additionally, use any outdoor areas that you have, such as a backyard, a balcony, or a rooftop.

Clean, Clean, Clean

The last step on the list is clean. Clean before guests arrive, and certainly clean after guests leave. And we don’t mean just breaking out an old mop and broom to clean up food and drink messes. We recommend getting the full space disinfected.

At FP Property Restoration, we are licensed, bonded, and insured to provide disinfecting services during this COVID outbreak. Our team is trained and prepared to disinfect your residential property with CDC approved COVID botanical-based disinfectant, Bioesque.
