Did you know that the current "Safer at Home" order allows for individuals to "engage in outdoor activity, provided the individuals comply with the social distancing requirements…such as, by way of example and without limitation, walking, hiking and running." Here are a few ideas:
- Visit one of our local parks - Our parks are free and still open to the public. However, the park restrooms are closed.
- Visit a nearby hiking trail.
- Head to the beach.
- Walk/run around your neighborhood and say hi (from a distance) to all of your neighbors who are getting outside too.
- Go for a drive or ride your bike.
