You can’t keep adding new people to the bubble or swapping in others. It’s important to keep the bubble small and make sure everyone is on the same page about health guidelines for the three-week timeframe.

“Neighbor-to-neighbor” assistance is reaching out to your neighbor(s) by phone, email, text, or going to their home to check on them, to see if there is anything they need that you are able to help them with, such as groceries. If you go to their home, please knock and back up 6 feet before they answer. Follow the safety guidelines above to keep vulnerable people safe. Try to connect people with official resources as much as possible.
No, all members of a household must be part of the same social bubble.
All individuals are required to wear masks/face coverings when at a business, both indoors or outdoors, whether employee or customer. Businesses are required to enforce this, so if a restaurant asks you to keep your mask on while you are waiting for your food to arrive, or after you have finished your meal, please comply.
You can remove your mask to address basic biological necessities like eating and drinking, but you should replace your mask as soon as possible if you have to remove it. This is especially important if you are eating or drinking in public areas -- indoors or outdoors. Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer both before and after handling your face covering.
