Holiday Gathering Recommendations from DESE & DPH

Holiday Gathering Recommendations from DESE & DPH

As we enter the holiday season, we will all have difficult decisions to make around holiday gatherings and celebrations.  DESE has encouraged each district to share the Department of Public Health guidance with our staff and students. 
Limit gathering size: Indoor gatherings at private residences are limited to 10 people, and outdoor gatherings at private residences are limited to 25 people.
Individuals should stay within their household: For a lower-risk celebration, people should limit in-person holiday gatherings to only people they live with or limit the gathering to a small group of individuals with whom they are regularly in contact.
Avoid travel: Anyone considering travel should review and abide by Massachusetts travel orders, and people who want to travel to another state that is not a lower-risk state should be aware of the quarantine requirements involved with such travel.
