School, birthday parties, social gatherings


Regardless of the size of the gathering, you are at risk from COVID-19 whenever you get together with people. The virus that causes COVID-19 spreads easily indoors, especially in poorly ventilated settings.

If you or your children don’t feel well or show any symptoms of COVID-19, stay home.

If you choose to attend a gathering—or send your children to school in-person—practice prevention measures, regardless of your COVID-19 vaccination status:  

  • Stay at least six feet from others,
  • wear a mask,
  • avoid crowded or poorly ventilated areas,
  • cover coughs and sneezes with bent elbow or tissues and  
  • clean your hands frequently.
