Here’s what I say. No way should you sit and hide. If you have family over or family invites you? Go. Now common sense says that those who are infected need to stay home. Now my sister and brother in law have covid. As do their three children. So no I go nowhere near them. Now they aren’t sick, they just all tested positive.
If you’re healthy and your family and friends are healthy, eat drink and be merry. Don’t hide and wait for the end. Go out, enjoy.
Here’s what the CDC says.
People with or exposed to COVID-19

Do not host or attend gatherings with anyone who has COVID-19 or has been exposed to someone with COVID-19 in the last 14 days.
People at increased risk for severe illness
If you are an older adult or person with certain medical conditions who is at increased risk of severe illness from COVID-19, or live or work with someone at increased risk of severe illness, you should avoid in-person gatherings with people who do not live in your household.
