My Plan for Staying Safe. To stay safe, I will:

  • Walk/ride a bike instead of ride shares or public transportation
  • Get an outdoor table at a restaurant
  • Wear a mask
  • Carry and use hand sanitizer
  • Stay 6 feet away from others
  • Sit away from others at church
  • Give air hugs
  • Avoid touching eyes, mouth and nose
  • Call ahead to ask what safety measures are in place
  • Carry disinfectant wipes to clean surfaces
  • Tell family/friends about my personal safety boundaries
  • Airdrop/text photos rather than handing my phone over
  • Meet with family or friends outside
  • Not share food or drinks
  • Ask others to wear masks too
  • Wash hands before and after meals
  • Shop in a less crowded part of the store
  • Elbow bump instead of shaking hands
  • Wipe down credit/debit cards
  • Wash my hands after arriving home
  • Not pick up things other people have been using (e.g. basketball, game controllers, pens, utensils, books)
  • Pay online or ahead of time when possible
  • Sanitize my cell phone/tablet after being out

Am I ready to get back to this activity safely?

  • Yes
  • No, I need more info/support
  • No, I’ll wait
