Well, the first thing is plan ahead. Don't "wing it".
That's a recipe for disaster.
There are three things you should focus on when planning:
Now that you are all organized and have planned things in advance, time for a bit of a refresher - don't forget the basics of responsible behavior.
TRY TO STAY
BRING A MASK JUST IN CASE.
