Frequently Asked Questions
The success and failure of the social bubble concept depends not only on your personal actions but also everybody else. It’s about solidarity. Keeping our bubbles small and consistent is really important to prevent an increase in the number of infections and a stress on our health care providers and hospitals. It’s best to be upfront about what levels of contact you expect to be having. Set ground rules together, since your idea of proper contact may not be the same as someone else in your bubble. Remember: their behavior impacts your health and vice versa.
Technically, yes. But, it’s important to take precautions. Social bubbles are an excellent way to allow families across multiple households to come together once again. However, older adults are especially vulnerable to severe symptoms of COVID-19. Therefore, all members of a social bubble should continue to practice other protective measures of physical distancing, wearing face coverings, frequent hand washing, staying home when sick, and obeying isolation or quarantine guidelines if a member of the social bubble is diagnosed or exposed to COVID-19. People who are forming a bubble that includes people over 65 or those at high risk should consider a smaller-sized bubble with a very cautious approach to outside contact.
Depending on the activity that you and your social bubble are participating in, make sure you are in compliance with the California State guidelines for masks and face coverings. When in doubt, wear a face covering.
We suggest that you figure out what level of risk each social bubble member is comfortable with before agreeing to be in each other’s bubble. Make sure you are creating a social bubble with people you really trust so that everyone feels comfortable and safe.
Child care or summer camp bubbles are separate from household bubbles. This means that if you send your child to camp or preschool, you don't have to forgo bubbling with your extended family or friends. Your child can be in both bubbles. However, a child can only participate in one childcare or camp bubble during any three week period.
No. One social bubble and one childcare or camp bubble only.
