The December celebrations have been a family tradition in our country. Share with those we love, with those who live far away, and gather around a home and a feeling.
However, the Covid-19 pandemic has changed all routines since March, including these family gatherings. For this reason, the Ministry of Health and Social Protection issued recommendations from the Promotion and Prevention direction for the care of all at this time.
“Although it is clear that after so many months we want to be able to share with our friends and families, we must understand that the virus still continues and has not gone away, so we must also adapt these celebrations as we have adapted our work, education and other aspects of our daily life ”, said Gerson Bermont, director of Promotion and Prevention of Minsalud.
The invitation from Minsalud is to celebrate at home only with the family nucleus with which he lives, this because meeting with nuclei and friends outside the residence can increase the risk of contagion.
“Taking into account that the vulnerable population are those who have comorbidities and those over 60, the best Christmas gift we can give them is taking care of ourselves to take care of them”added the director.
For the tradition of the Novenas de Aguinaldos, the suggestion given by the Health portfolio is to take advantage of the technological tools that since March we have been learning in other settings of our lives. Create virtual dynamics, games, and make of these a space to meet as a family – remotely – protecting those we love.
“It is also essential to be attentive to the symptoms that we present and that we can, in some cases, be mistaken as the flu. If we have any respiratory symptoms we must immediately isolate ourselves “Bermont noted.
