• Get set: Prepare your family and home ahead of time for the possibility of having to evacuate. Ensure you have a plan of what to take and where to go – evacuation plans will be different this year due to COVID-19. If you do need to evacuate and plan to stay with friends or relatives, ask first if they have symptoms of COVID-19 or have people in their home at higher risk for serious illness. If that is the case, make other arrangements. Check with hotels, motels and campgrounds to learn if they are open.

• Stress and anxiety regarding COVID-19 and local fires can result in an increase of stress-related health conditions. Find tips for stress management in the California Surgeon General’s Playbook (also in Spanish).
