Safer gathering tips

Looking for safer ways to get together with family and friends? Here are a few tips to help make these gatherings safer: 

  • Consider meeting in a park, a backyard or the driveway where there is plenty of fresh air.
  • Choose a location with plenty of room, so households can easily stay 6 feet apart.
  • Have everyone bring their own meal and utensils.
  • Wear masks when not eating or drinking.
  • And, avoid handshakes or hugs, instead using words to let them know how much you care.
