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 to an outing.
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 attend?
- People over age 60 or have chronic medical conditions are at greatest risk.
- Keep a small and stable number of people you interact with.
- The fewer people involved, the safer. Gatherings of more than 12 are not permitted.
- If you feel sick, stay home.
What will be happening?
- It's safest 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.
