Social Distancing

Here is what Social Distancing means:

Limit close contact with people

  • Limit physical contact, including handshakes
  • Avoid hugging or kissing people who are sick or showing symptoms of illness, keep your distance about six feet away
  • Limit in-person meetings, using phone, email and other communication tools when possible.
  • Increase physical space when you are working or talking with others out in public.

Stay home if you are sick

Stay home from work, school, church or other group gatherings if you are ill with these symptoms:

  • Fever of 100 degrees or higher
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath
  • Sore throat

Identify actions to take if you need to postpone or cancel events

  • Officials may ask you to modify, postpone or cancel large events for the safety and well-being of your event staff, participants and the community
  • If possible, plan alternative ways for participants to enjoy the events by television, radio, or online

Avoid crowds, especially in poor ventilated spaces

  • Your risk of exposure to respiratory viruses like COVID-19 may increase in crowded, closed-in settings with little air circulation if there are sick people in the crowd

Reduce or limit large gatherings

  • Consider that now may not be the best time for parties or potlucks

Limit non-essential travel
