Attending gatherings to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day increases your risk of getting and spreading COVID-19, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The safest way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day this year is to gather virtually, with people who live with you, or outside and at least 6 feet apart from others. If you plan to celebrate with others, outdoors is safer than indoors.
Here are some safer ways to help you celebrate:
1. Decorate your home in St. Patrick’s Day colors, shamrocks, and leprechauns.
2. Celebrate by making Irish-inspired recipes. Here are some from the Food Network.
3. Have an outdoor neighborhood St. Patrick’s Day celebration with everyone at least 6 feet apart and wearing masks.
4. Watch a virtual St. Patrick’s Day celebration.
