The experts at SouthCoast Health in Savannah answer the question “Can I Go Outside During the Coronavirus Pandemic?”

The good news is the answer to this question is yes! You can still go outside and enjoy the fresh air, as long as you follow safety guidelines. In fact, many health experts recommend it. Going outside means you’re getting a break from being stuck in quarantine and soaking in some much-needed vitamin D.

But, if you do plan to go outside, make sure to follow these safety tips:

Since the coronavirus is spread through droplets made through actions such as coughing or sneezing, it’s best to still wear a mask if you plan to go outside. This will protect you from those droplets.

It’s best to keep up social distancing measures. Still plan to keep about six feet away from everyone around you. The good news is that it’s easier to do this while exploring outside versus being stuck in close corridors inside.

If you are in the high-risk category, unfortunately for you it is best to stay indoors still, unless you plan to sit outside or walk around in your own yard where you know no one else will enter.

The final conscious is: yes. It’s safe to go outside during the coronavirus pandemic. Make sure to follow the guidelines above.
