Tips for a healthy outdoor brunch

In today’s pandemic environment, group gatherings can cause concern. You should always follow your country and local government’s safety guidelines and social distancing rules first.

However, should you decide to host an intimate gathering, here are some smart safety tips.

  • Plan your event entirely outdoors: Have a gathering at a park or in someone’s yard.
  • Themed tables: Instead of one long table, have multiple tables with one to two dishes on each. This will avoid crowding and long buffet lines.
  • Tell your guests to bring everything they need to serve themselves and eat: Dishes, cups, and utensils. This will also minimize clean-up for the host! Win-win.
  • Have a handwashing station: Also, bring disinfecting gel and wipes to sanitize anything that might be shared.
  • Avoid shaking hands or hugging: Simply wave (and, of course, smile!) to greet your guests from a distance. You can also have each guest stand up and say something kind to the others as a way to share love without physically touching.
  • Wear a face-covering: Whenever you are not eating.
