If you are with friends and strangers this weekend, stay outdoors, protect yourself in these days leading up to your get-together and be aware of others who are coughing or looking sick and leave if you’re uncomfortable.
Mask and distancing rules in public are always in effect.
Better yet, though, stay inside in the household with family only, to avoid the smoky air and warm temperatures. It’s your best bet, the county health authorities say.
Stay safe this Labor Day.
