Department of Health spokesperson Maria Rosario Vergeire said Filipinos should opt to celebrate the holidays with members of their own household and choose alternative ways of marking Christmas.

Vergeire said Christmas celebrations, if ever held, should be done in well-ventilated spaces.

She also warned against buffet-style meals, which she said could also lead to coronavirus infections.

The DOH is also appealing to national government agencies and local government units to reconsider holding holiday outreach programs, which could draw crowds and increase the risk of virus transmission.

If ever outreach programs are held, the DOH said minimum public health standards should be observed, which include proper handwashing, physical distancing and wearing of face masks.
