A different holiday season

ANAHEIM, Calif. (Dec. 15, 2020) — It brings us no joy to say the holiday season is very different this year.

It started with Thanksgiving and continues with Hanukkah, Christmas and New Year's. All holidays where we come together to celebrate.

But gathering this year not only isn't allowed under California's regional stay-at-home order, it's not safe for loved ones. 

Amid record cases in Anaheim, Orange County and California, it's easy to see why.

We urge everyone to celebrate in smaller ways with your immediate household and connect with loved ones online.

It's not the same, we know. But we must all do our part.

That said, we know some will inevitably gather this holiday season. 

While we do not recommend it, for anyone doing so we urge you to practice what's known as harm reduction.

  • If you do gather, do so outside.
  • At most, see people from your same area -- this is not the year to travel.
  • Stay six feet or more apart from those outside your household
  • When inside, open windows and keep air moving.
  • While it can be awkward, wear masks.
  • Keep any gatherings as small and short as possible.
  • The elderly and those with medical conditions should not mix with others.

With that, we wish everyone a great holiday season. Thank you for doing your part and celebrating the right way. We join you in looking forward to a better 2021.
