The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has released new guidance to ensure a safe Easter celebration.
It says the safest way to celebrate is virtually or with your own household.
The CDC says if everyone at the gathering is vaccinated against COVID-19, it is not necessary to wear masks.
Other holiday suggestions from the CDC include bringing your own food, drinks and utensils and avoiding singing or shouting.
It says hosts should provide unused masks and one-time use items like dressing and sauce packets.
The CDC also says if you're going to be together indoors, open windows and use a fan to blow air out of your home.
The CDC suggests holding Easter egg hunts with your household or outdoors with others at a distance of 6 feet apart.
