As the year 2020 draws to a close, we are still struggling to make sense of this pandemic.
Wether you live in Horry County, Georgetown County, South Carolina or somewhere else in the USA, we just know your life has been affected!
Kids are learning virtually, seniors are homebound due to the danger of being exposed to COVID-19, millions are still out of work and others are working from home, and we are seeing yet another spike of new cases.
Personal safety is important to us. We want our customers and friends to be safe as well.
It’s safe to say things will be different.
Each family will need to decide for themselves how to navigate the unknown of a pandemic holiday season.
We are glad however to have discovered some great resources for those who need ideas and suggestions.
As many people in the United States begin to plan for fall and winter holiday celebrations, CDC offers the following considerations to help protect individuals and their families, friends, and communities from COVID-19. These considerations are meant to supplement—not replace—any state, local, territorial, or tribal health and safety laws, rules, and regulations with which holiday gatherings must comply. When planning to host a holiday celebration, you should assess current COVID-19 levels in your community to determine whether to postpone, cancel, or limit the number of attendees.
For parents who are concerned about potential COVID-19 exposure a ‘traditional Trick or Treat‘ activity might pose, here are some lower risk Halloween activity ideas.
While it’s tempting, the CDC urges all of us to do our part and avoid large gatherings and close contact with people outside our safe zone.
Here are their recommendations of activities to avoid:
While we all want to be able to be with family during the holidays, it might be wise to adjust your plans now to only get together with family members who are local to you. Avoid unnecessary travel, including airplanes.
Instead, use technology to connect virtually and make alternative plans.
Be safe. Stay healthy.
No matter where you live or work, chances are that you’ve been affected by COVID-19. “In times like these” isn’t a phrase we can use because none of us have ever seen a time like this before. We are in this together, whether we like it, or not.
Whether you are practicing social distancing, self-quarantining or have been asked to shelter in place, please know we feel anxiety, stress and worries just like you are.
Unless you’ve opened your pool early this year, or you are using power tools, staying safe at home during this Pandemic means practicing and adhering to safety protocols as usual.
This is a bit trickier. Your mental health is important to be able to function at home for the long haul of being quarantined. Make sure to use technology to connect with loved ones, pick up new hobbies and above all, eat healthily and exercise! If you have a pet, taking care of your pet’s needs or walking your dog also helps relieve stress.
It’s easy to fall into bad habits; while we can’t go out and eat, this is a great time to cook, bake and enjoy some home-made recipes. Do go to the store once per week if possible to buy fresh produce; it’s more important than ever to take in as many vitamins and minerals as possible to boost your immune system!
As far as occupying your time and entertainment goes, we have some ideas to share.
Pull out old family movies, watch long-forgotten classics or stream the latest Hulu, NetFlix, Disney or Amazon Prime shows and movies. Home theaters at a time like this can offer great relief at the end of yet another quarantined day!
As far as technology goes, the sky is the limit. Imagine it and you can do it!
We’ve seen the gamut and encourage you to ‘think outside the box’ to stay connected while distancing.
After all, we really should call it physical distancing, not social distancing!
Stay safe, healthy and connected and give us a call if you need anything.
