Fourth of July is only a few days away, and is usually associated with fireworks, crowds and injuries. The July 4 safety tips will be different than in previous years, as most counties cancel their fireworks to reduce the crowd and prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Counties encourage community members to watch from home or stream their ad online. Check with your county to see if a virtual show is streaming, or search for “firecrackers near me” to see if your county is still showing an ad.
Backyard barbeques or pool parties are always popular for the fourth time. Make sure you are safe and continue to practice social distancing, wear a mask, maintain frequent hand hygiene, and stay home when you are sick! We understand that the temptation to gather for large groups is extremely great; However, people should continue to avoid large gatherings and non-essential trips and visits.
