Safer holiday gatherings at work

COVID-19 has brought so many changes to our work lives and will affect the way we celebrate the holidays with co-workers. Potlucks in the office, a departmentwide lunch out, the company holiday party … all need safety considerations and reconsideration.

Food safety

  • Any holiday meals/treats should be prepackaged (by manufacturer or restaurant) and distributed. No homemade treats this year.
  • Social distancing of 6 feet between place settings is necessary for any group meals. Do not approach others when masks are off.
  • Potlucks, trays of treats and punch bowls are a source of transmission.
  • Provide hand sanitizer and disinfect eating areas after you have finished.

Alternatives to parties or meals

  • Livestream team parties. Have a best-dressed or best decorations contest.
  • Decorate a tree with co-workers. Have a contest for best ornament.
  • Secret Santa gift swap (no homemade edibles)
  • Door or cubicle decorating contest
  • Ugly sweater contest
  • Participate as a team to sponsor a Caring Tree family
