How Holiday Traditions Have Been Impacted by Covid-19

Written By Selena Bailey

Covid-19 has affected everyone in some way.Whether that is school, unemployment, or even being able to see loved ones we have all adapted to the new normal. Covid-19 has changed a giant way to make memories with loved ones, Holidays! We late last year saw how Covid-19 changed our Christmas but will it be any different? What has changed from now to then?

First, recently we have developed a vaccine. The vaccine is supposed to help battle Covid-19 and Covid-19 symptoms. This means less fatalities in regards to the disease and less transmission from one person to another. The vaccine is changing a lot about our new normal. It is going to let shops take in more people and schools reopen safer for everyone. This seems to be our first step back to normal.

Thanks to the vaccine we have been given new hope to see those most important in our lives. In Fact the CDC has changed the policies and recommendations for gatherings since Christmas. In a recent recommendation the CDC states,”For people who have not received the vaccine, the CDC wants people to wear masks inside and outside at Easter gatherings.”

This is a huge difference from the article released not even three and a half months ago that stated we should avoid large groups of people and close contact. This means we are able to see our family and make memories together again.

Covid-19 has affected us all and has changed our outlook on the world. Everyone lost hope in going back to normal after the disease first came and our world was flipped upside down. Thanks to the vaccine and the new recommendations we may be able to go back to how life was. So spend time with your loved ones and remember how far we have come as a society.
