Don’t Freak Out - #ShakeOut! On October 15th at 10:15 am, millions of people worldwide will practice earthquake safety and how to “Drop, Cover, and Hold On” during the annual Great International ShakeOut. This is a good opportunity to consider COVID-19 safety procedures for your workplace, classroom, or household while practicing earthquake preparedness.
Consider adapting your ShakeOut drill with COVID-19 measures in mind:
- Where will your drill be held? At work, school, or home? Consider video-conferencing!
- How will you incorporate COVID-19 health and safety guidelines into your activity?
- Is it better to have everyone participate all at once, or perhaps in staggered dates and times?
