Stay Safe While Going Out and Resuming Pre-Pandemic Daily Activities

With the end of the Blueprint in June, our community and local businesses have reopened. To safely resume pre-pandemic daily activities, it is important to understand potential risks and adopt different types of prevention measures protect you, your loved ones, and our community by reducing the spread of COVID-19. It's okay if you decide to stay home and remain apart from others. Do what's best for you. For more information about how to stay safe when going out and resuming daily activities, please visit the CDC Website

Follow these recommendations from the CDC for staying safe:

If You Want to Make Indoor Activities Safer:
  • Pick uncrowded, well ventilated places
  • Stay at least 6 feet apart
  • Wear your mask correctly and consistently
  • Limit the amount of time you spend with others
Why Outside is a Safer Choice:

COVID-19 spreads more easily indoors than outdoors. Studies show that people are more likely to be exposed to COVID-19 when they are closer than 6 feet apart from others for longer periods of time.

You are more likely to be exposed to COVID-19 when you:

  • Attend crowded, poorly ventilated indoor events
  • Have close contact with infected people at home

You are less likely to be exposed to COVID-19 when you:

  • Attend outdoor activities
  • Stay at least 6 feet apart
  • Limit the amount of time spent with people who don’t live with you
