While there's no place like home for the holidays, this year's home-based holiday parties won't be anything like the ones of the past, especially in California.
California officials are trying to police family celebrations during the upcoming Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. The state's strict new coronavirus rules have now been issued for holiday gatherings, and here are a few of the shocking highlights.
The requirements for attending a gathering include:
- No more than three households can assemble at a time.
- The host should collect the names and contact information of all attendees.
- All gatherings must be outdoors with guests limiting their time indoors.
- Seating shall be at least 6 feet apart in all directions between members of different households.
- Face coverings are mandatory, unless eating or drinking but must be put back on afterward.
- Gatherings should be two hours or less.
Some of the guidelines about families making noise are especially worth noting. They warn against "Singing, chanting, shouting, and physical exertion" because those activities can increase the risk of COVID-19 transmission through the air. The document states:
"Because of this, singing, chanting, and shouting are strongly discouraged, but if they occur, the following rules and recommendations apply: All people who are singing or chanting should wear a face covering at all times while singing or chanting, including anyone who is leading a song or chant... People who are singing or chanting are strongly encouraged to do so quietly (at or below the volume of a normal speaking voice). Instrumental music is allowed..."

Many citizens opposing Gov. Gavin Newsom's extreme COVID policies took to social media to voice their frustration.

User Aubrey Huff even doubted the reality of the new requirements. "Is this real life? This is so beyond ridiculous that even your most heralded sheep will think this is crazy @GavinNewsom."
