With the coronavirus being the big topic on everyone’s mind, this week I was being asked if it is okay to get out and enjoy the fresh air and a pretty day and the answer is yes according to most doctors, we think so if you avoid close contact with others.
The coronavirus is thought to spread primarily through close contact between people – within about six feet. The primary mode of transmission is through respiratory droplets. There is better airflow outside than in confined spaces. That air flow outside reduces the risk of one person transmitting the virus to another through droplets in the air, says Albert Ko, the Yale epidemiologist. “So if you’re going out and you’re hiking or biking or running and you’re not within, say, six feet or 10 feet of another person, I would consider that a healthy, safe practice.”
