Gathering safely

This time of year, families and friends will be making choices about whether or not to gather for celebrations, game days or other seasonal events.  

Gathering in groups—even with people we know—may spread COVID-19. The more people we interact with at a gathering and the longer that interaction lasts, the higher the risk of becoming infected.

The safest action, especially if you’re in a high-risk category, is to avoid gatherings and find different ways to celebrate. This website from Washington State Department of Health includes ideas for how to gather virtually and a checklist to help plan a safer gathering.

Tips for Halloween activities

Traditional Halloween activities are fun, but some can increase the risk of getting or spreading COVID-19 or flu. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has a new webpage that features new ways of trick or treating and other Halloween activities.

When trick or treating or participating in other Halloween activities with people outside your household, wear a mask. You can make it fun by making your mask part of your costume, but when it comes to slowing the spread of COVID-19, a costume mask is not a substitute for a cloth mask. Also, do not wear a costume mask over a cloth mask. It can make breathing more difficult.
