COVID19 is still an active and spreading disease, even with businesses reopening. Educate yourself, your friends, your neighbors and your loved ones on what summer activities are deemed safe or a high risk when considering COVID.
The CDC, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, states the following as things that you should know:
Stay home if you’re sick
Use online services when available
Practice social distancing
Wear a cloth face covering when running errands
Use hand sanitizer after leaving stores
Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds when you get home
When visiting public places the CDC recommends:
Stay at least 6 feet away from others (“social distancing”)
Prepare before your visit
Don’t visit public places if you are sick or recently were exposed to COVID-19
With that said, here is a list of activities rated from low, moderate, to high risk that you can partake in this summer.
Backyard BBQ’s – Low Risk
Camping Outside – Low Risk
Going to a Vacation Home – Low Risk
Going to a bar, dance room, or nightclub – High Risk
Outdoor Exercise – Low Risk
Sharing Beverages or Utensils With Friends – Moderate to High Risk
Going to Your Neighbor’s Pool – Low to Moderate Risk
Take a moment, do your research, and know what activities are safe to participate in for Summer 2020. As you pack your bag to head out of the house, don’t forget to bring Transcend Glucose Gels with you to be prepared to treat low blood sugar levels and hypoglycemia from anywhere at any time.
