Why Outside is a Safer Choice

If you want to spend time with people who don’t live with you, outdoors is the safer choice! COVID-19 spreads more easily indoors than outdoors. Studies show that people are more likely to be exposed to COVID-19 when they are closer than 6 feet apart from others for longer periods of time.

You are more likely to be exposed to COVID-19 when you

  • Attend crowded, poorly ventilated indoor events
  • Have close contact with infected people at home

You are less likely to be exposed to COVID-19 when you

  • Attend outdoor activities
  • Stay at least 6 feet apart
  • Limit the amount of time spent with people who don’t live with you

If you participate in outdoor activities:

  • Bring a mask with you to put on when you encounter people who may get closer than 6 feet
  • Follow local mask mandates

If you want to make indoor activities safer:

    • Pick uncrowded, well ventilated places
    • Stay at least 6 feet apart
    • Wear your mask correctly and consistently
    • Limit the amount of time you spend with others
