Stay Safe Outside the Home

Running Errands

Running errands can be safe with just a little planning:

  • Stay home if you are sick; use delivery options instead.

  • Vulnerable people should use delivery or curbside-pickup options when possible.

  • Wear a face-covering. 

  • Know the rules and expectations at any place of business and be prepared to follow and respect them.  

  • Be careful not to touch your face while running errands, especially your nose and mouth.

  • Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds with soap and hot water after you get home.

Staying safe and smart while volunteering will help keep our community healthy:

  • Use social distancing whenever possible.

  • Wash hands frequently for at least 20 seconds using soap and hot water.

  • Wear masks whenever possible and especially when social distancing is not possible. Read the Missoula Public Health Guidance for Volunteers for further advice.


Traveling in times of COVID-19 requires travelers to be careful:

  • The CDC says vaccinated individuals can safely travel.

  • Do not travel if you are sick, or if you have been around someone with COVID-19 in the past 14 days.

  • Do not travel with someone who is sick.

  • Bring a mask and hand sanitizer.

  • Check and respect the local health ordinances of the city/county/state you are visiting.

  • If you or a member of your group develops symptoms after you return from a trip, contact Missoula Public Health or your health care provider as soon as possible.
