Know before you go

Staying home is the best way to reduce the risk of getting or spreading COVID-19. Every interaction you have adds to the overall risk for everyone.

Consider if you must go somewhere where other people are.

If you must go out, wear a face covering, clean your hands often, and stay 6 feet apart from anyone who doesn’t live with you.

Think about who will be there, what will be happening, and where you will be.

Questions to think about

Who will be there?

What will be happening?

  • It's safer when everyone wears face coverings. People may not wear them if there is food, drink, or lots of physical activity.
  • People from different households should keep at least 6 feet apart.
  • Avoid sharing any food or items. Disinfect items between use, if you must share.
