When planning or attending an event during the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the CDC recommends these behaviors to reduce spread:
Stay home when appropriate: If you are feeling ill, have a temperature, or have knowingly come in contact with someone diagnosed with Covid-19, please stay home.
Physical/social distancing: Stay at least 6-feet away from people outside of your household and avoid physical contact (handshakes, hugs, etc.).
Masks: Although masks are not required in either Minnesota or North Dakota, many events are encouraging to at least have them on hand so you can be protected in a variety of situations.
Travelers to Fargo-Moorhead and all destinations should continue to observe the health recommendations of national and local public health officials, if they plan to travel, when they travel, and when they are visiting any destination.
If you decide to travel, be sure to practice all precautions given by the CDC to prevent getting and spreading COVID-19 .
