How to Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day Safely

How to Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day Safely

March 16, 2021

It might be safe to assume that by this point, we’re getting pretty good at celebrating holidays virtually or safely distanced. Every day, we’re getting closer to being able to celebrate our favorite holidays and events with the people we love but until then, it’s just as important to keep wearing masks, washing your hands, maintaining at least 6 feet of physical distance in public spaces and avoiding large gatherings where safe distancing is difficult.

Until the day we can gather safely again, here are a few ways to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day safely:
