Gather Your Quarantine Crew

Experts say the number of people invited from one household isn’t as important as the number of households invited because each household is considered a “quarantine unit.” The more units you invite, the higher the chance of infection.

Host Outdoor ONLY at a Distance…EXCEPT for the Bathroom

Being inside hikes the risk of infection in all cases. Consider positioning tables and seating to mark out safe distances. Make the path to the bathroom clear and ask guests to use paper towels to turn off faucets, flush the toilet, and reopen the bathroom door.

Mask Up

Ask people to arrive wearing their masks. When not eating, everyone should wear masks. Have a few extra on hand if someone shows up without one.

Set Up Stations

It’s not the greenest option, but it’s safer to use disposable cups, plates, and cutlery are the way to go at a Socially-Distant BBQ. Put together a basic hand-washing station with sanitizing wipes or hand sanitizer.

Serve Individually Portioned Snacks and Sides

The safest option is to serve or have guests bring drinks and food for individual use.  Sharing food, especially finger foods like dips, invites shared germs as every hand going near a serving bowl can transfer the virus. Brief close-range contact is OK, but sustained contact is risky.

Fire Up the Grill

The heat from the grill at a Socially-Distant BBQ will kill the virus, but to be extra cautious, serve meat right off the grill so there’s no shared serving platter.

Easy to Find Garbage

Put a trash bin near the action and ask guests to throw away used items when they’re done so you don’t need to touch any.
