SAFE AND HEALTHY BBQ
–When serving your BBQ, use paper plates, cups and utensils so everything can be thrown away. Keep a receptacle outside so everyone can dispose of their own trash.
–Never put your hands in bowls of chips or snack foods. Always use a serving spoon or have multiple bowls designated for each family.
–Set chairs 6 feet apart when possible. Have separate families eat at separate tables.
–Place sanitizer in several locations so everyone can disinfect before and after eating.
–Serve your food directly from the grill so food isn’t handled.
