Celebrating Christmas Safely During COVID

Finding ways to celebrate Christmas during COVID is difficult but doable. If you are determined to have a holly jolly Christmas despite the pandemic we have a few suggestions:

  • Keep holiday gatherings as intimate as possible. The less people you invite, the lower the risk for your guests.
  • Sending online Christmas invitations allow you to share your safety plan with your guests. Let people know how many people are invited, social distancing precautions and that you will have Eddie’s Clean Hand’s sanitizer available. Should anything change or if additional information is requested by your guests, digital invitations allow you to easily update everyone.
  • Consider throwing an outdoor holiday party to lower health risks. At each guest’s seat you can provide a basket of goodies to help keep them warm and safe – blankets, hot hands and hand sanitizer. For ambiance set up an outdoor firepit, string lights and light candles.
  • If you decide to hold your gathering indoors be sure to take as many precautions as possible. Disposable tableware is suggested and individual 2 oz hand sanitizers can be placed at each setting. 
  • If you decide to play it safe, virtual celebrations over Zoom can be fun with a little creative planning. You can even send party kits via mail to all of the invitees – think party hats, decorations, matching pyjamas and, the gift that says you care about their health – Eddies’s multi purpose disinfectant and sanitizer.

However you choose to celebrate the holidays this year, including Eddie’s Clean Hands as part of your plans is a great way to stay safe and show your loved ones you care this holiday season. Shop our 40% off sale today to get your order in time for Christmas.

Protecting Yourself from COVID-19 After Holiday Celebrations

Despite recommendations to avoid travel over the Thanksgiving holiday, almost 1.2 million people passed through U.S. airports Sunday, the most since the pandemic gripped the country in March, and others took to the highways to be with family and friends. Travelers are being urged to watch for any signs of illness and get tested right away if they experience symptoms.

Whether you traveled or not, the projections of COVID-19 growth are trending upwards so extra sanitization precautions are recommended for everyone. While you may have opted to stay home you can still come in contact with others who did travel and have a higher risk of infection.

Here are some tips for protecting yourself and others from COVID-19 post holiday:

  • If you did travel it is recommended to quarantine yourself for 14 days and be tested for COVID-19 5 days after returning home
  • In public utilize an alcohol based sanitizer such as Eddie’s Clean Hands to disinfect commonly touched surfaces such as shopping cart handles, door knobs and toilet handles
  • Use Eddie’s hand sanitizer regularly after touching commonly shared surfaces such as credit card keypads, gas pump handles as well as mail and packages
  • Keep a 2 oz bottle of Eddie’s on hand throughout the day while at work or school where you share door knobs, cabinet handles and restroom facilities with a number of people

No matter where you go or what you do it is always a good idea to have a bottle of Eddie’s multi-purpose sanitizing spray with you. It has a 75% alcohol based solution and can be used on your hands as well as surfaces.

With one major holiday down and more around the corner, it is a good time to order a multi-pack of Eddie’s spray to make sure you never leave home without it. While you are at it, order extra gifts for your friends and family. In 2020 the gift of sanitization really shows you care!
