As the holiday season begins, you might be wondering about the risk of getting sick with COVID-19 as you make plans to celebrate.

We asked the experts, what's the risk of allowing family or friends to stay over around the holidays?

Their take: letting family or friends stay over around the holidays is a high risk.


But if you still plan to have people over, be smart!

Experts have said "Masking, trying to have separate bathrooms, you know, sleeping in separate rooms will probably be the right way to do it if you really have to. I'm still again, avoiding it would probably be the right way to go."
