We are now approaching our second holiday season within the coronavirus pandemic, and health experts are beginning to dole out their expected, disappointing advice for how best to mitigate the risks of spreading the deadly illness among friends and family.
Now, with a great many Americans vaccinated against COVID-19, and with coronavirus cases at a far lower number than a year ago, one would expect that the CDC would be suggesting some more relaxed guidelines for keeping everyone safe.
Instead, it appears they have spent the better part of the year thinking of ways to make us all as uncomfortable as possible.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released recommendations Saturday for the upcoming holiday season, including the idea of using a window fan to keep air at an indoor party as fresh as possible.
The CDC appears to be suggesting that circulating air indoors can ward off the airborne coronavirus, or at least reduce its chances of spreading during home gatherings.
“If celebrating indoors, bring in fresh air by opening windows and doors, if possible,” its holiday celebrations guidance states. “You can use a window fan in one of the open windows to blow air out of the window. This will pull fresh air in through the other open windows.”
But that’s not all:
It recommends getting together only with members of a household, meeting remote family and friends virtually or, if necessary, “Have an outdoor celebration with everyone at least 6 feet apart.”
The news isn’t likely to sit well with Americans who’ve been fully annoyed with the ongoing doom and gloom surrounding the virus, especially after nearly 56% of the country is fully vaccinated.
