Summer Safety During COVID

Stay Safe

  • Stay 6 feet apart from people who are not in your household. Don’t hug/kiss/shake hands with people not in your household. An elbow bump or smile will do!
  • Gather with people in outdoor, uncrowded spaces.

Use CDC Guidelines

  • Stay up to date on health information
  • Check location specific information, whether your’re staying home or traveling

Masks Keep Us All Safe

  • Wear a mask when inside a public place, friends’ homes, or in crowded outdoor spaces
  • Ask others to wear a mask when inside your home or vehicle

Make Safe Choices for Everyone

  • Stay home if you or a family member has symptoms such as fever, cough, or shortness of breath
  • Use disposable plates, cups, cutlery if sharing a meal with friends
  • Make/bring your own food and drinks to parties

Expect Change

  • Guidelines and advice may change as more information is learned about COVID-19
  • Restrictions may become more or less strict as time goes on
  • Make flexible reservations in case plans must change

Remember Hand Sanitizer

  • Hand sanitizer can help keep your hands cleaner on the go
  • But washing your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds or more is still the best way to get the virus off your hands
