Since the start of the COVID-19 global pandemic, we have learned a lot about how the virus spreads between individuals and how we can reduce the chance of becoming infected. Although we were advised to stay home initially, as time passes by, there has come a need to step out of the house for essential and social activities.
When we have to step out, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention recommended we adhere to strict social distancing guidelines to curb the spread of the virus and keep ourselves safe.
If you see them properly, these social distancing rules are easy to follow when visiting a social area such as the park. As long as you follow the SOP’s, you are ensuring your visit is as safe as possible.
What is Social Distancing?
Social distancing means to remain physically distant from those who are not in your immediate household. The distance provided by the CDC is a minimum of six feet. Although with social distancing, it can become easier to restrict the spread of COVID-19, you should also consider other preventive measures such as:
- Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds with soap and water.
- Avoid touching your nose and face in public.
- Wash your hands right before and after eating.
- Use an approved hand sanitizer when you have touched any surface.
- Always wear a mask.
How to Maintain Social Distancing at Parks
It will not be challenging to visit a park during a pandemic as long as you follow the rules. Some parks operate on reduced visitor capacity, and some operate on reduced timings due to less staff. Hence it would be best to check their website and give him a call before going in personally.
While you move around the park, ensure you leave extra room around you and do not stand in the middle of the walking aisle. Although all the parks around the country have strict sanitization rules, you should always keep a sanitizer handy after use. Use the sanitizer right after touching several different surfaces to ensure you do not pick up the `virus. Remember that many have closed down bathroom facilities during the COVID-19 pandemic.
