At CorpsTHAT, we understand how import the outdoors is for our physical and mental health. We recognize how challenging getting outdoors safely has felt while quarantining, following our shelter in place orders and social distancing. During this COVID-19 pandemic it is even more important to make sure we are going outdoors safely so we do not put ourselves or others at risk. This video provides guidance and best practices for social distancing while still enjoying and connecting with the outdoors.
Listed here are additional resources for getting outdoors safely during COVID-19:
