Make a plan to celebrate the holiday season safely. Be festive while protecting your loved ones and
preventing the spread of COVID-19: Do not travel (rediscover holidays at home); do not host or attend a
holiday party (go virtual instead); and do not gather in groups and only celebrate with household
members (less is more).
As families start to plan their Day of the Dead activities, Fort Bend Health & Human Services reminds residents that some of the traditional ways in which this holiday is celebrated will increase the risk of becoming infected with COVID-19 and spreading the disease to family and friends. The guidelines in this document will assist families in enjoying a safe and festive Day of the Dead celebration.
