As COVID-19 continues to spread in communities, please be aware of the risk of visiting different public settings. When deciding whether to go out, consider factors about how COVID-19 spreads in a certain location, including:

  • how closely and for how long you will be with other people,
  • the number of different people you will be with,
  • how well an area is ventilated, and
  • whether other people will be wearing face coverings.

Your own ability to wear a mask and your risk for developing severe illness from COVID-19 may be important to think about as well.
