Can I go to the beach?
As states begin to loosen stay at home orders, several are allowing visitors to beaches, with restrictions. Fresh air and exercise outside is always recommended, but when going, maintain the standard precautions of social distancing. Being at a beach is safer than being inside at a gathering, it’s still a risk to interact with large groups of people and share public spaces. That’s why many beaches are limiting activities that could force contact and proximity.
Also be aware that when you’re at the beach, you may need to use public changing rooms and bathrooms, which present more concerns about being in indoor close quarters with others. This makes it easier to spread the virus. Keep your distance and wash your hands thoroughly, frequently and wipe down any surfaces before touching them with a disinfectant wipe, including toilet seats, door knobs and handles.
