Labor Day – Stay Safe!

Stay Safe Over Labor Day ​

Orange County is now off the state watch list. This means the number of cases is slowly dropping. But the coronavirus is not gone. We still need to follow the rules to stop the spread of this virus.

This weekend is Labor Day. It usually means parties to celebrate the end of summer. Please be extra careful if you are seeing people who don't live with you. Your risk of getting COVID-19 from someone you do not live with increases with the amount of time you spend with them. ​

Here's what you can do to stay safe. ​

  • Limit the size of your gathering
  • Stay outside as much as possible. The coronavirus can float and live in the air up to 3 hours.
  • ​Set out individual plates of food for each person. Do not let guests serve themselves. You want to avoid others from breathing on the food. 

And remember to: ​
  • Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer often. You may want to place hand sanitizer by the food and other places.
  • ​Stay at least 6 feel apart from people you do not live with. People can have COVID-19 and have no symptoms. 
  • Wear a face covering or mask in public places. Wear one at gathering where you can't be 6 feet away from others. Be sure the face covering or mask covers both your mouth and your nose. ​

Coronavirus is the virus that causes COVID-19. 
  • Coronavirus has been found in some pets like dogs and cats.  
  • This means that people who have the disease may be able to spread it to their pets.
  • Experts do not think the virus can be spread from the pet to a person. So far, there is no evidence of this.
  • Experts also do not think that the virus can make your pet sick. So far, there is no evidence of this, either. 

However, just to be on the safe side, here's what experts recommend. 

If you or someone in your house has COVID-19:

  • Keep your pets away from anyone in the house who has the virus.
  • Avoid dog parks.
