Safer Gatherings and Celebrations

Here's what we know:

Gathering with people we don't live with-even close friends and family-may spread COVID-19. The more people we interact with at a gathering and the longer that interaction lasts, the higher the risk of becoming infected. Although the COVID-19 vaccine is now available, it will take time for everyone to receive the vaccine and get immunity. It's more important than ever that we continue to wear masks, stay six feet apart, and avoid gatherings with people we don't live with. 

The Washington State COVID-19 Response website provides information on how to celebrate and gather safely.
