Socializing During the Pandemic

We are all aware of restrictions during the pandemic but those need to be reinforced as many times as necessary so people can have the best chance of making it through these tough times.

Here are some basic guidelines:

  • Stay home if you are sick or have been around anyone who has exhibited signs and symptoms of the virus.
  • Wear masks in public settings and when around people who don’t live in your household, especially when other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain.
  • Use social distancing (stay at least 6 feet away from others). Even when outside, it’s important to realize that maintaining a safe distance makes a difference.
  • Wherever you are going, call ahead and ask what extra prevention strategies they are using, like requiring staff to wear masks.
  • Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds when you get home.
  • Get tested. If you feel like you have the symptoms of the virus, then look up your local testing site and get tested. In most locations it doesn’t take much time and the results can be obtained fairly quickly.
