Safe Outdoor Activities during COVID
Picnics- Whether you order take out or make and pack food from home this is an easy one to stay safe. Set out blankets, head to your favorite park, get your space and soak in the day.
Drive-In Movies-This concept may take on forms other than movies as the pandemic continues. Very easy to keep your distance, and on top of the safety factor, a cool, throwback to when drive-ins were all the rage to see a movie at.
Farmers Markets- Given the booths and close proximity to vendors in this setting, a mask would be advisable. However, this is another great “normal” summer activity that with the simple addition of a mask makes it even safer.
House Party or Gatherings with Friends- Keep the handshakes and “hugs” to a minimum and give each other your 6 feet. Plan out some fun games or activities that you can play from a distance. Friends are another thing a lot of people miss during this pandemic. Never underestimate the power of a conversation with a true friend. It can lift the spirits and even help in the most difficult of times. Just remember to keep that 6-foot distance!
