如何在社交隔离下庆祝,听听专家们怎么说

Brooke Henderson 2020年07月29日
疫情改变了人们庆贺的方式。

在社交隔离时期,数百万人正在寻找新的方式来庆祝周年纪念日、生日、婚礼、毕业典礼和其他里程碑事件。

以两个朋友为例:全球新冠疫情使汉娜•威尔逊走上毕业典礼讲台的梦想成为泡影,阿萨哈拉•布莱克利于是开始了头脑风暴。

布莱克利说:“汉娜试图对一切保持乐观,但我知道她内心深处非常难过。我想让她知道,无论怎样,她的朋友和家人永远支持她。”

在威尔逊家人和朋友的帮助下,布莱克利借助Zoom组织了一场惊喜派对。在一阵“惊喜!”欢呼之后,亲友们一个接一个地走过去,表达了他们对威尔逊取得成就的自豪和喜悦。

想一些创意,再辅以有用的物品道具,在隔离时期也能够以特别的方式庆祝重要时刻。为了帮助你行动起来,《财富》杂志向公共卫生和医学专家咨询了有关如何在庆祝这些特殊时刻的同时保持安全的建议。

霍华德大学医学院院长休•麦蒂博士:“虚拟庆祝活动效果很好。这种庆祝方式需要一些筹划,一次要少邀请一些人。如果你能够想到,你可以为活动参与者提供一个主题。这是一个绝佳的机会,用好几天的时间来庆祝你的生日,这样你可以第一天和家人一起庆祝,第二天和朋友一起。你会发现实际上你和每个参加派对的人有更多的时间相处。这也是一个很好的联系朋友的机会和方式,即使你们已经有一段时间没有见过面了。如果有人破坏了虚拟派对,你可以断开连接取消对此人的邀请。今天是你的生日。”

“对小孩子来说,虚拟庆祝可能是个挑战,但却可行。首先,请记住,孩子越小,注意力持续的时间越短。对于4至5岁的孩子,举办一个15分钟的生日派对,并有明确的主题——搭房子、最喜欢的动物、运动——是不错的选择。快速播放“生日快乐”歌,做一个简短的活动,并向大家致谢。如果轮流过生日,父母就会有大量机会打招呼,孩子们也会有很多机会见到朋友们。对于年龄较大的孩子来说,存在更多选择,因为他们可以玩多人在线游戏。”

“对于不能上网的人来说,戴口罩、保持距离以及限制聚会规模是至关重要的。鼓励人们保持距离并且可以在户外进行的活动,比如踢足球或传球,比实际比赛或抢球更可取。要记住勤洗手,避免脸部接触。

“吃饭时要记得保持距离,使用个人餐具,不要共用器皿。提前准备好食物,便于携带。比如,吃三明治比食用拿普通容器盛装的食物要好。”

佛罗里达大学医学院教授诺曼•贝蒂博士:“社交隔离对于防止病毒传播至关重要,因此举办生日派对几乎是不可能的。让小朋友或者十几岁的孩子脸上戴着口罩,同时要保持社交距离,这似乎有点困难,而且也是不现实的。一种广受赞同的安全庆祝生日的方法是让亲朋好友开车经过你的房子,车上装饰着庆祝标识,经过时按喇叭鸣笛。这是在保持社交距离的前提下表达支持和庆祝的简单方式。我知道我女儿喜欢看她爷爷奶奶开着被彩带、彩旗、甚至一只独角兽(她最喜欢的动物)装饰的卡车从我们家门前经过。使用你最喜欢的视频电话设备进行虚拟聚会也很有趣。”

华盛顿Healthcare Ready的执行董事尼科莱特•路易桑特:“我的生日其实是几周前的7月4日,这有点与众不同。我的父母也都过生日,但在纽约市隔离,我能为他们这样庆祝:我们可以错开气球和礼物交付,以便他们能够因为每隔几个小时就有礼物收而保持兴奋。至于我自己的生日,我们办了一个Zoom派对。这种方式安静多了,我刚刚在家吃了一顿丰盛的晚餐。我建议大家享受现在可以获得的特别酷但是不贵的服务。比如,在一个包厢里举办隔离派对,把你身后的空间装饰一番,以此为背景办一个非常酷的Zoom聚会。还有一些服务可以让你轻松地在一夜之间给你爱的人寄送可爱的包裹或蛋糕,不必聚在一起你就能表达关心。”

佛罗里达大学儿科研究中心医学主任琳赛•汤普森博士:“总的来说,在疫情期间庆祝特殊时刻非常重要,但是这些庆祝活动应该采取温和的形式。但是,如果有人正在隔离,他们需要杜绝和任何人接触。这时,在线聚会可能会很有效。Zoom等平台支持在‘画廊’模式下看到亲朋好友,让过生日的人感到很特别。与朋友和家人一起驾车游行也是一种向隔离中的人表示敬意的绝佳方式。”

罗格斯大学新泽西医学院院长罗伯特•约翰逊博士:“我们举行了很多驾车游行庆祝活动,尤其是为我们团体的老年人。我们已经完成了——对不起,我说的是“我们”,实际上是我的妻子玛克辛——三四次活动,甚至还有几次是毕业典礼。我属于一个组织者团体,组织者们向每个人发出正式的电子邮件邀请,然后和人们签约获取帮助。

“他们会为每个人挑选见面的地方,比如快餐店的停车场。每一辆车来了,我们都会用气球加以装饰。然后,当整个车队准备好了,我们就一起开车到我们要为之庆祝的人的家里,然后鸣笛。我们刚刚参加的是50周年庆典,那对夫妇走到门廊向每个人挥手致意。”

“我知道有些人在公园里庆祝。但是,只要遵守社交隔离政策,这种庆祝方式就存在风险。”(财富中文网)

Millions of people are finding new ways to celebrate anniversaries, birthdays, weddings, graduations, and other milestones in the era of social distancing.

Take this example of two friends: When the global pandemic made Hannah Wilson’s dream of walking across the stage at graduation impossible, Ashayla Blakely started brainstorming.

“She was trying to be optimistic about everything, but I knew deep down inside she was sad about it,” Blakely said. “I wanted her to know that her friends and family supported her no matter the circumstances.”

With the help of Wilson’s family and friends, Blakey organized a surprise Zoom party. After a great cheer of “Surprise!” loved ones went one by one, expressing their pride and happiness at Wilson’s accomplishments.

Celebrating in quarantine can be just as special with a little creativity and helpful supplies. To help you get started, Fortune asked public health and medical experts for their tips on how to stay safe while recognizing these special moments.

Dr. Hugh Mighty, dean of Howard University’s College of Medicine: “Virtual celebrations work. It takes a little planning, but start by inviting smaller numbers of people at a time. Give them a theme to follow if you have one. It is a good time also to celebrate your birthday over several days, that way you can have day one for family and day two for friends. You may find that you actually share more time with each person attending. This is a good time and way to connect with friends even if you have not seen them for a while. In the event that someone crashes the virtual party, you can always disinvite them by disconnecting them. It is truly your birthday.

“Virtual celebrations for younger children can be a challenge, but doable. First, remember that the younger the child, the less the attention span. A 15-minute birthday with a focused theme—construction, favorite animal, sport—may be good for the 4- to 5-year-old group. Get to the ‘Happy Birthday’ song quickly, do a short activity, and thank everyone. If you rotate the birthdays, there will be plenty of opportunities for parents to say hello and children to see their friends. For older children, there are more options, because of multi-person online games.

“For those who lack Internet connectivity, masks, distance, and limiting the size of the gathering is essential. Activities that encourage distancing and that can be done outdoors, such as kicking around a soccer ball or passing a football, would be preferable to actual games or tackling. Hand washing and avoiding face touching should be remembered.

“Eat with distancing in mind, use individual utensils, and don’t share containers. Prepare food in advance and make it easy to pick up. Sandwiches are better than serving food from a common container, for example.”

Dr. Norman Beatty, professor at the University of Florida College of Medicine: “Since social distancing is essential to fighting the spread of this virus, having a birthday party is nearly impossible to swallow. The reality of keeping a face covering on little ones—or even a teenager—and social distancing itself seems a bit challenging and unrealistic. One popular approach to safely celebrate someone’s birthday is to have friends and loved ones drive by your house with signs, sirens, and honking car horns. This is one simple way to show your support and celebrate with social distancing in mind. I know my daughter loved seeing her grandma and grandpa’s truck decorated in streamers, colorful flags, and even a unicorn (her favorite animal) as they drove by our home. Virtual hangouts using your favorite video-calling device can also be fun.”

Nicolette Louissaint, executive director of Healthcare Ready in Washington, D.C.: “My birthday was actually a couple of weeks ago on July 4. It is a bit different. One thing that I was able to do for both of my parents who both had birthdays as well and are quarantined in New York City: We were able to stagger balloon and gift deliveries, so that they were able to feel like they were kind of getting something every couple of hours to kind of keep things exciting. We did a Zoom party for my own birthday. It was a lot quieter, and I just had a great dinner at home. One thing I would recommend is to lean into some of the really cool and inexpensive services that are being offered now. There are things like a quarantine party in a box that allows you to decorate the space behind you and have a really cool Zoom party with a background. There are also services that make it very easy for you to send cute packages or cake to loved ones overnight. That allows you to still be able to express care without having to congregate.”

Dr. Lindsay Thompson, medical director of the Pediatric Research Hub at the University of Florida: “Overall, it is important to celebrate special moments during the pandemic, although these celebrations should be in a tempered format. If someone is in quarantine, however, they need to be completely separate. Online parties can be effective: Platforms like Zoom allow a ‘gallery’ view of friends and family and can make the birthday person feel special. Drive-by parades of cars with friends and family can also be a fabulous way to honor a person in quarantine.”

Dr. Robert Johnson, dean of the Rutgers New Jersey Medical School: “We’ve been doing a lot of drive-by celebrations, especially for the seniors in our family. We’ve done—I’m sorry, I’m saying ‘we,’ but it’s really my wife, Maxine—we’ve done three or four of them, even some graduations. I belong to a family of organizers, so they sent out formal email invitations to everybody and signed people up to help.

“They pick a place for everyone to meet, like a fast-food parking lot. As each car arrives, we decorate them with balloons. Then, when the whole caravan is ready, we drive together to the house of the person we’re celebrating and honk. The one we just went to was actually a 50th anniversary celebration, and the couple came out on the porch to wave to everybody.

“I know that some are having celebrations in parks. It gets to be a little a little risky as far as social distancing goes.”
