Follow the CDC's advice for being safe with vaccinated vs non-vaccinated people.

Keep things clean - hands, face, handles, masks, surfaces...

Follow travel safety guidelines.

BE SMART

By being safe - see above.

Keep your immune system strong – via vaccines, nutrition, exercise, vaccines, hope, love…

Monitor yourself and others for exposures and symptoms.

If exposed, self-isolate for 14 days.

Get tested & care if needed & follow visit safety requirements.

Rely on credible info - from the CDC and state dept of public health.

Be prepared – have back-up masks, plan ahead.

Get the COVID-19 vaccine as recommended by the CDC , your state and doctor.

Don’t forget about vaccines to protect against the flu and pneumonia.

BE KIND

Thank others for being safe and smart.

Stay connected with people you care about – calls, emails, letters, meals, facetimes, zooms & other ways that can make up for these times being safe.

Be the role model, leading with actions that show care about others – helping to protect anyone – family, friends and strangers, any age, school years to elderly – especially those more vulnerable.

Thank those who work in stores, health care, or other jobs where they are around many people and doing their best to stay safe.

Can you donate food, money and/or time to local food pantries?

Does someone you know need a listening ear, a meal, groceries, something fixed or other ways you can help?

How can you be kind to yourself? Walks outside, great sunsets, sunrises, movies, time with loved ones, avoiding negative news and social media… what else?
