NOTE: These suggestions for exercising outdoors during coronavirus are that only: suggestions. Always check with your state and local government orders before traveling anywhere during the COVID-19 outbreak, even a park in the next neighborhood over.
With U.S. residents under orders to stay at home to help ﬂatten the curve of the COVID-19, people are asking if it’s OK to go outside for activities like hiking, running or biking? In many cases, public health ofﬁcials say the answer is yes—as long as you’re not sick, adhere to local orders, practice social distancing and common sense. Mandatory stay-at-home orders often allow exceptions for engaging in activities outdoors, generally close to home, like walking your dog, riding a bike or going on a run. Whatever you do outside, practice social distancing, which means keep at least 6 feet away from others to avoid contracting or spreading the virus, the CDC says.
