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

  • Provide hand sanitizer and disinfect eating areas after you have finished.

Alternatives to parties or meals
