risk levels for kid and family activities during COVID-19

We know there is a lot of confusion around what families should and shouldn't do when it comes to their safety and COVID-19. That's why we worked with Dr. Sherman Alter, infectious disease specialist, to provide you with some recommendations on levels of risk for various activities that kids and families might enjoy doing.

It's important to remember that these are suggestions and that each family needs to do their part to weigh and minimize the risks associated with any activity.

Before participating in any of these activities, we recommend you:

  • Inquire about safety measures at public places
  • Wear a mask when appropriate (age 2 and up)
  • Practice social distancing
  • Wash your hands
