These Are the Most High-Risk Things to Do Right Now, Says the CDC

There may be an unwanted guest at your Thanksgiving celebration: COVID-19. Cases are surging again. But you don't need to cancel your plans, especially if you're vaccinated.  "Holiday traditions are important for families and children. There are several ways to enjoy holiday traditions and protect your health," says the CDC. "Because many generations tend to gather to celebrate holidays, the best way to minimize COVID-19 risk and keep your family and friends safer is to get vaccinated if you're eligible." Read on for the list of the CDC's "DO NOTs"—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Sure Signs You've Already Had COVID.


Avoid Crowded, Poorly Ventilated Spaces

The CDC says flat out: "Avoid crowded, poorly ventilated spaces." And adds: "Protect those not yet eligible for vaccination such as young children by getting yourself and other eligible people around them vaccinated. Wear well-fitting masks over your nose and mouth if you are in public indoor settings if you are not fully vaccinated." And remember: "Even those who are fully vaccinated should wear a mask in public indoor settings in communities with substantial to high transmission," says the CDC. "Outdoors is safer than indoors."

Don't Host or Attend a Gathering if You Are Sick or Have Symptoms

Special Considerations

Says the CDC:

  • "People who have a condition or are taking medications that weaken their immune system may not be fully protected even if they are fully vaccinated and have received an additional dose. They should continue to take all precautions recommended for unvaccinated people, including wearing a well-fitted mask, until advised otherwise by their healthcare provider.
  • You might choose to wear a mask regardless of the level of transmission if a member of your household has a weakened immune system, is at increased risk for severe disease, or is unvaccinated.
  • If you are gathering with a group of people from multiple households and potentially from different parts of the country, you could consider additional precautions (e.g., avoiding crowded indoor spaces before travel, taking a test) in advance of gathering to further reduce risk.
  • Do NOT put a mask on children younger than 2 years old."

When Should I Take Creatine?

Creatine is probably the most well-researched supplement on the market today. Numerous studies have found positive adaptations in strength, power and muscle mass thanks to creatine supplementation—especially when it's combined with resistance training. Although the benefits of creatine are well-known to lifters, the best time to take it isn't common knowledge. Which leads us to some important questions:     Does an optimal time for consuming creatine exist?     If it does, should you take it before or after your workout? According to a new study published in the Journal of Exercise and Nutrition, the timing of creatine ingestion does indeed play a role in getting bigger and stronger. Creatine supplementation before resistance training increases muscular strength and lean muscle mass. Interestingly, taking creatine immediately after lifting weights results in greater muscle growth than taking it immediately before. However, in terms of strength gains, no difference betw
