temporary cover for hole in roof

I'm about the tear down the chimney of the house I'm renovating (to make way for a new steel chimney for a wood stove). Roofing is one department I don't have any experience in and I'm wondering what the best way to cover the hole (it'll be coming up through the ridge) temporarily is. Plywood, tarp, tacked down furring strips? Is it important not to pierce the asphalt shingles? Hopefully it will only be a week or so before the new chimney and roof patch happens.
thanks

blue tarps have become fashinable in this area .

blue tarp nailed on with furring strips is what I would do .

Hole cover

Be sure to patch the furring strip nail holes when finished.
