COVID-19 Guidance for Protests
Tips around attending protests in the COVID-19 era: Sanitization Protocol adapted from QueerCare
Maintaining Physical Distance: Whenever people gather in large numbers, there is a potential for the disease to spread. It’s important to maintain at least 6 feet of physical distancing or more. Shouting generates more aerosols and can spread the virus further, increasing COVID-19 transmission.
Wearing a Mask: We recognize that for people of color, racial bias and stereotypes of criminality have created real fears about going out in public with a mask or face covering. People of color have been removed from stores for wearing masks, and many fear for their lives. We understand these concerns, and at this moment, they must be weighed against the additional protections masks can provide from transmission and exposure to COVID. We encourage you to wear one.
