Social Distancing is Still Critical for Running Outdoors
In our previous post, Running During Coronavirus, we talked about making sure you maintain social distancing even when you're running outdoors.
There is still a lot to learn about the virus and how it's spread through the air, but it's clear now that it is transmitted through the air. An article I read today, noted the terrible spread potentially due to a choir practice in early March. You may think that it has nothing in common with running, but both activities involve forcefully exhaling your breath into the air. Even outdoors, if you're running within 6 feet or downwind from another runner, you're putting yourself in danger.
Stay safe and run alone, cross the street when you see another runner and avoid crowded running routes and stick to streets that are lesser populated.
