Summer barbecues are a great way to enjoy the outdoors and each other’s company. Keep your barbecues with family

TIP #1 Keep It Clean!  Wash clean. Wash hands with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds before and after handling food. If you're eating where there’s no source of clean water, bring water, soap, and paper towels or have disposable wipes or hand sanitizer available.
