* The CDC says “if you want to spend time with people who don’t live with you, outdoors is the safer choice!” You are less likely to be exposed to COVID-19 during outdoor activities, even without the use of masks, when you:
- Stay at least 6 feet apart from people who don’t live with you
- Limit your time around others
