Docsun Biomed Report on 5 Tips for a Safer Holiday Period during the COVID 19 Pandemic

By: WHO and CDC
JHUBEI CITY, Taiwan - Dec. 20, 2021 - PRLog -- The winter holidays are traditionally a time for people of all ages to come together, whether for family gatherings, religious festivals or meet-ups with friends. They are also a time when many people are planning to travel, either within their own countries or internationally.

1.     Get your full course of vaccinations as soon as possible

Getting vaccinated with the complete series of available doses is the most important thing people can do to be protected from severe disease and death from COVID-19. This is especially important for at-risk groups such as those aged 60 years and above, and for people with underlying health conditions.

Most people needing critical hospital care for COVID-19 are unvaccinated. Current vaccines offer protection against severe disease and death from COVID-19 variants, including Delta. While evidence is still emerging, current vaccines should also protect against severe disease from the new Omicron variant.

2.     Take other personal preventive measures to help stay safe and keep societies open

Combining vaccination with the other available preventive measures this winter helps us to live our lives while controlling the virus and avoiding widespread lockdowns.
  • Wearing a well-fitting mask when needed
  • Maintaining physical distance of at least 1 meter
  • Ventilating indoor spaces by opening windows and/or doors
  • Avoiding closed, confined or crowded spaces
  • Keeping hands clean
  • Coughing or sneezing into a bent elbow or tissue.
3.     Make get-togethers as safe as possible

Indoor gatherings, even smaller ones, can give the virus an opportunity to spread. Gatherings and celebrations should be held outside if possible, and those meeting up should wear masks and maintain physical distance. If held indoors, limiting group size and ensuring good ventilation by opening a door or window when safe to do so are key to reducing the risk of exposure.

4.     Avoid traveling if you are at risk

All travelers should remain vigilant for signs and symptoms of COVID-19, get vaccinated when it is their turn and adhere to preventive measures at all times, regardless of their vaccination status.

5.      Get informed from trusted sources

Misinformation and disinformation put people's health and lives at risk, undermine trust in science, and impede making the right decisions about our health. Seek out reliable information sources that provide advice based on the latest evidence and scientific consensus.
