These activities could put you at risk for COVID-19 during the holidays

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Are you wondering what your holidays will look like during a pandemic? Should you go visit family members or stay at home for the holidays?

The Texas Medical Association (TMA) created a chart that shows what activities put you and your family at risk of exposure during the holidays.

Dr. Ogechika Alozie is an infectious diseases expert in El Paso and a member of the Texas Medical Association's COVID-19 Task Force.

The TMA's COVID-19 Task Force consists of 15 expert physicians from across the state. Dr. Alozie said there is a public demand for safety messages as the seasons change, and the community questioned what activities were safe during the holidays.

The TMA asked for medical leaders and physicians' input and created a chart ranking the activities from "low-risk" to "high-risk."

"People are asking, 'How social can I be during the holidays? What is safe or not safe?'" Alozie said. "So, the task force really wanted to be diligent about calling out certain activities and give people a compass to guide their behavior."

Alozie said it's important for people to remember the three Ws: wear a mask, wash your hands, and watch your symptoms.
