Stay home if you are sick. If you decide to participate in an in-person social activity, make it safer:

• Remember the big three.
o Maintain physical distance (6 feet).
o Wash your hands frequently.
o Wear a face covering.

• Take supplies.
o A mask or cloth face covering.
o Tissues.
o Hand sanitizer (with at least 60% alcohol) and disinfecting wipes, if possible.

• Spend less time.
o For example, bring a shopping list to be efficient. Get your hair cut but not shampooed or colored.
• Avoid unnecessary contact.
o For example, use curbside pick up and drop off when available for purchases and services, pay over the phone (if it’s not advertised, ask). Use less crowded spaces for outdoor activities.

• Be flexible.
o Change your plans if a situation looks crowded or you feel uncomfortable about the risk.

• Be assertive.
o Regardless of outside pressure, follow your own plan to maintain the risk level that fits your situation.
o Err on the side of less risk to both yourself and others.

• Don’t touch.
o Avoid touching things if you don’t have to, and clean your hands afterward when you do.
o Try not to touch your face until you wash your hands.
o Avoid sharing items with others.
