The state released new guidance on Friday, October 9 that allows private gatherings of up to three households. The new guidance went into effect in San Diego County Saturday.
- The gatherings must take place outdoors. If at someone’s home, guests may go inside to use a bathroom.
- Any interaction with others increases the risk of transmitting COVID-19. The smaller the gathering, the lower the risk. The new guidance recommends keeping the households you gather with stable over time.
- Participants in a gathering need to stay at least six feet apart from non-household members and wear face coverings in accordance with state guidance. Gatherings should be kept to two hours or less.
- Anyone with COVID-19-like symptoms should stay home. If you attend a gathering and develop COVID-19 symptoms within 48 hours of a gathering, you should notify everyone who was there.
- Those in a high-risk group, such as older adults and people with chronic medical conditions, are strongly urged not to attend gatherings.
