Host a Virtual Easter Gathering

With the holiday long weekend approaching, be prepared to celebrate Easter in a different way this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Instead of inviting family and friends over for dinner, host a virtual gathering using digital technology.

Here are some other things to keep in mind:

  • Restrict in-person Easter gatherings to only people living in the same home.
  • Beat the pre-holiday rush and purchase your Easter dinner groceries ahead of time.  Remember, only one person from a household should go shopping.  Make a list so you can quickly purchase your goods.
  • Always practice preventative measures – frequent hand washing and physical distancing.
