Know Your Pod, Limit Your Risk


Podding is a great way for people to experience social interaction during the pandemic, but there is more to it than “just hanging out with a few people.” Every person in a pod is connected to all of the other people members of their pod may come in contact with as well. When a reporter traced his own pod, he soon realized what he thought would be a small bubble of people quickly grew to include more than 100 contacts.

Pods are helpful during the pandemic but they are not invincible. Members should continue to wear a mask, wash their hands and maintain social distance whenever possible. It is important to be thoughtful about who makes up a pod and how to maintain its integrity. The smaller the pod, the lower the risk of exposure and spread.
