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.
