Know Your Risk and Take Action During Labor Day Weekend

As we approach Labor Day weekend, people need to remember that Jackson County is still on the Governor’s Watch List, and it is best to begin planning now how to keep yourself and those around you safe and healthy from COVID-19. The more people a person interacts with and for extended amounts of time increases a person’s risk for contracting and spreading COVID-19. This includes attending and hosting social gatherings with family, extended family, and friends.

Activities that take place outdoors that allow for enough room to maintain physical distancing and involve fewer people are lower risk activities compared to activities that take place indoors that do not allow for physical distancing and involve more people. This guidance will be critical to follow as we approach Labor Day weekend:

  • Limit your social gathers outside your household, noting that Governor Brown has made social gatherings with more than 10 people off-limits.
  • Wear a face covering if you cannot maintain 6 feet of physical distance.
  • Stay home if you’re sick, have a pending COVID-19 test, if you have been a close contact of a confirmed COVID-19 case, or if you have an underlying medical condition that puts you at a higher risk of severe illness from COVID-19.
  • If you host a gathering, have it outside and refrain from hosting large groups of people (10 people or less).
  • Provide hand sanitizer or give people easy access to places where they can frequently wash their hands.
  • Adjust your food offerings to avoid sharing utensils and offer individual servings. Don’t share drinks.
  • During and afterward, thoroughly clean all frequently touched areas your guest had access to.

 Overall, people in Oregon should follow the three W’s:

  • WEAR a face covering
  • WATCH your distance
  • WASH your hands
