Spring is here and the sun has been making an appearance more and more – a refreshing change when we’re all confined to our homes. It’s not surprising that the nice weather brings runners, cyclists, and families out, but in this COVID-19 world we need to remain aware of the need for physical distancing and the risks associated with not following those guidelines.
Here are our experts’ recommendations for enjoying nice whether safely:
- If you’re running or biking, maintain a distance of several metres from people you pass or come across. Because you’re exercising and moving faster, there is actually an increased risk of droplets and it becomes easier to break the traditional precautions.
- If you are taking the kids out to a park or trail, look for local, smaller ones that may not be as busy as the bigger, well-known ones. And, as tempting as they are, keep the kids away from playgrounds.
- As a general rule, stay away from people as much as possible – go for solo walks and runs, and if you’re walking your dog make sure you keep a safe distance from other dog walkers, including at dog parks.
We’re with you – we all want to enjoy the sun and get some fresh air, but we also want to make sure you’re all staying healthy and helping keep your community safe.
