Ashton on her Instagram @drjashton. The CDC is advising us to avoid large gatherings. We're looking for safe ways to spend time with our families. Here is trae bodge, thank you for being with us. We love having you. The CDC obviously telling all of us to avoid large gatherings that we love. You can host and try to stay safe if we're able to spend time with our family and friends. What can we do to minimize risks as we're trying to do that in small settings? Sure. So there are three main things to keep in mind. Keep your distance, minimize contact and keep your surfaces clean. Thanks to your sponsor the Libman company, I'm going to share some tips with you. You said keep your distance. We all know to do that. How do you set the party up if you will in different stations to encourage people to stay apart? That's a great point. Different stations are the way to go and you can see if you are gathering with people outside your household I would seat everyone individually. I used folding tables and chairs that are indoor/outdoor. You might need a heating element as well if it's cold out. Then prepackaged meals. This way there's no reaching. There's no cluster at the buffet table. Place holders, had a little fun with covered insulated cups. I have a 14-year-old calligrapher at home.. We personalized the cups. Then that way people can take something home afterwards. It feels like glamping there. I like it. I know you have ways to keep those stations and spaces and items clean. It's so important to keep our surfaces clean. We've had a hard time finding disinfecting wipes. I recommend a spray. This is the Libman company multi-surface disinfecting cleaner. It kills viruses and 99.9% of germs. Spray it on and wipe. It's available at stores nationwide. They have a gallon size if you want to stock up for the holidays. All right. A little extra planning and preparation can go a long way so we can see one another in small groups outdoors. Trae, thank you so much. We appreciate it. Thanks so much. All this time, robach, when I came over and you sat me in a corner by myself, you were just being safe. I was only thinking about you. Thank you. All makes sense now.
