COVID-19 Safety Tips for Labor Day

COVID-19 Safety Tips for Labor Day

For many families, the Labor Day weekend is typically a time to celebrate together. However, it’s important to understand that COVID-19 is still a very real threat in our Valley, so keep these safety tips in mind as you’re planning your holiday weekend to keep you and your family safe.

  • Do a wellness check of you and your family. Check for symptoms such as fever, cough, shortness of breath, chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, or loss of taste or smell. If you or your family experience these symptoms, please stay home and call your doctor. 
  • Wear a face mask that covers your nose and mouth. It is recommended to wear a mask when you are out in public, or indoors where you can’t social distance.
  • Practice social distancing. Maintain six feet of physical distance with people who don’t live in the same household while keeping your mask on.
  • Practice proper hand hygiene. Wash your hands frequently, bring hand sanitizer with you when you leave your home and avoid touching your face, mouth and eyes. 

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), staying home is the best way to protect yourself and others from COVID-19. Please stay safe and enjoy the upcoming holiday!
