Is it safe to go outside?
Yes, it is safe to go outside. In fact, it is advisable to go out for walks because this can be helpful for both your physical and mental health. The key is to continue to practice effective social distancing while you are outside of your home to avoid being exposed. That means staying more than 6 feet away from others. Think about carrying hand sanitizer with you when you are outdoors and avoid touching your face. Then wash your hands thoroughly when you return.
