Tucson, Arizona (KGUN) — Think of Black Friday shopping when the Thanksgiving table is cleared, or perhaps before. But how can you reduce your COVID risk in a store crowded with enthusiastic Black Friday shoppers?

When you’re focused on grabbing these doorbuster deals before they’re sold out, someone is trying to break your 6-foot bubble in that upcoming Black Friday retail battle.

Dr. Teresa Karen, Director of Health, Pima County, said: So, if you’re sick, stay home, wear a mask, wash your hands, or use hand sanitizers to protect yourself and your loved ones as much as possible. “

Dr. Karen says it’s not time to ease hand washing and its disinfectant gel.

“COVID is a respiratory illness, but it’s easy to touch your face and then touch others.”

Dr. Karen says the current medical advice is mask-up, but it’s not a simple cloth mask. She says she goes with an N-95 or KN-95 mask, or at least a disposable medical mask that fits well on your face.

She says Pima County Health is committed to enabling businesses to run, but your commitment to preventative measures can help reduce the spread of COVID.
