Summertime is a time when families and friends travel and celebrate together. Individuals can spread COVID-19 even without symptoms. Travel and gathering indoors with extended family and friends increases the chance of getting and spreading the virus that causes COVID-19. CDPH has provided additional guidance for those who are fully vaccinated. Reducing close contact with individuals outside your household, wearing masks, practicing hand hygiene, and staying home when not feeling well are all important measures to slow the spread.
Staying home with members of your immediate household is the best way to protect yourself and others. Marin County Public Health recommends that you choose a safer alternative way to celebrate summertime family occasions. It is important to plan early and identify safer options.
