Celebrating the 4th While Staying Safe

Published in For the Health of It Author:

The Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has recommended the following tips to help friends and families slow the spread of COVID-19 during gatherings or cook-outs.

If you are planning an event this holiday weekend, please keep in mind the following tips:

  • Host your gatherings outdoors, when possible.
  • Arrange tables and chairs so families can be 6 feet apart.
  • Encourage guests to bring their own food or drinks.
  • Stay home if you feel sick, have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 or if you have COVID-19 symptoms.
  • Wear face coverings when you are less than 6 feet apart from others, wash hands, and clean and disinfect commonly touched surfaces.
