The urge to engage in social activity with others is natural. But don’t let your social appetite put you at risk of contracting a socially transmitted disease like COVID-19. The Getting It On video series can help protect you–and your social partners–by showing you how to practice safer socializing. And whatever your reason for being socially active, get behind the mask.
When it comes to social activity, there can be safety in numbers. Smaller numbers, that is. Go for quality over quantity by keeping your number of social partners to a minimum, especially indoors.
Put A Mask
We get it. Social experiences aren’t as fun when you’re covered up, but a mask is the easiest and most effective way to protect yourself and your social partners from a socially transmitted disease like COVID-19. Just make sure it covers your nose and mouth.
Do your best to maintain proper social distancing of 6 feet. Sure, things naturally ebb and flow when engaged in social activites, but when you notice things getting a little close for comfort, reestablish your personal boundary.
Whenever you’re socializing, make sure you have hand sanitizer on, well, hand. Reapplyperiodically. The more often, the better. And when you wind up back at your place, wash your hands well with soap and water.
