Case updates September 2, 2020; Info on the safest way to gather

Friday, September 4, 2020

Safer parties use COVID-19 prevention practices this Labor Day weekend. Here is a short list of things to remember when it comes to gathering together in the time of COVID-19:

  • Outside is safer than inside.
  • Small groups are safer than large groups.
  • Less time together is safer than more time together.
  • Within six feet, face coverings are better than no face coverings.

So, while a Zoom happy hour might be your safest choice, an outdoor barbecue with one other family, with the chairs set up six feet apart, where the hand sanitizer flows freely, and everyone goes home early, is a less risky option, as far as these things go. Read the full blog post from DOH here.
