- Social gatherings/activities shall be limited to a maximum of 10 participants indoor and 25 participants outdoor.
- In accordance with current CDC recommendations, wear masks, use social distancing and limit physical contact by maintaining a distance of at least 6 feet or more from people who don’t live in your household.
When celebrating gameday, every little safe decision you make adds up. Here’s what you can do be safe:
- Wear a mask. This is especially important when the game gets going. Yelling and cheering should all happen behind a mask.
- Avoid large or packed crowds. It’s no fun to watch the game alone, but limiting the number of people you watch with will go a long way. Celebrating outside lets you move around if things get too close.
- Don’t share food or drinks. Think burgers instead of BBQ, canned beverages instead of pitchers, or bring your own if you’re not sure what will be served.
