We are all doing our best to stay sane while staying at home. With social distancing relaxing in some areas, it’s healthy to venture outside and enjoy outdoor activity like running and cycling. Understanding key concepts of transmission can help to keep you safe outside, while keeping you healthy with outdoor exercise.

Understanding the transmission of COVID-19 will help to give you peace of mind. We are still learning about the virus, and while it is not considered “airborne,” we are still learning how people get sick. The best recommendations currently include changing and showering as soon as you get home in case some particles acquired by passers-by potentially contaminated your clothes. You can also lower the risks by following social distancing protocols, wearing masks in public, avoiding touching your face, disinfecting fabrics and surfaces, and of course – washing your hands!
