Protect yourself and help reduce the spread of COVID-19 when around people that you do not live with at events and gatherings:

– Stay home when you are sick
– Try to stay at least 6 feet apart from other people when possible
– Wear a cloth face covering if able, especially when social distancing is difficult
– Wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not readily available
