Minimize your risk - What you need to know
Daily activities and going out:
- In general, the more closely you interact with others and the longer that interaction, the higher the risk of COVID-19 spread.
- If you decide to engage in public activities, continue to protect yourself by practicing everyday preventive actions.
- Keep these items on hand when venturing out: a face mask, tissues, and a hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol, if possible.

Close contact with other people increases risk. In general, the more closely you interact with others and the longer that interaction, the higher the risk of COVID-19 spread.
What makes activities safer?
Activities are safer if:
- You can maintain at least six feet of space between you and others. COVID-19 spreads easier between people who are within six feet of each other.
- They are held in outdoor spaces. Indoor spaces with less ventilation where it might be harder to keep people apart are more risky.
- People are wearing masks. Interacting without wearing masks also increases your risk.
