COVID-19 continues to spread, and many are left to wonder, “What is there to do this summer season?” Although we need to remain cautious and conscious of where we go, who we’re with, and whether or not our hands are clean, there’s still tons of summer fun to be had for all!
Here are a few tips on how you and your family can stay safe and healthy in the summer, without having to compromise your fun.
Wash your hands
We’ve all heard this over a million times by now, but it still remains true! Washing your hands can protect you from infections (such as COVID-19) and many others, by removing harmful germs from the skin. Be sure to wash your hands and use hand sanitizer as much as possible, especially after touching foreign surfaces. The bottom line is, the more you wash your hands, the less susceptible you’ll be to illnesses.
2. Go camping
Going camping in a secluded area is the perfect place for friends and family who’ve been practicing social distancing to get together. From having a BBQ, to hiking, kayaking, and more, there’s tons of fun to be had at a campground. All you need is a tent, some food, and great friends to make this experience the trip of a lifetime. Just limit your use of public bathrooms or communal picnic areas, and this should be a great low-risk summer getaway.
3. Spend the day at the pool, or the beach!
If you’ve been practicing social distancing, going to the beach or a pool with a small group of friends is low-risk. The idea that the virus can be spread through the water is almost entirely false. While the water won’t completely get rid of the virus, it will dilute it enough to weaken it. This means it is highly unlikely that the virus will be spread through pool or ocean water - so go ahead, grab your towel, and jump in!
4. Stay hydrated & Wear Sunscreen
Staying hydrated not only keeps you cool and quenches your thirst during some fun in the sun, but it also boosts your immune system. Drinking water removes toxins from the body and can help fight infections that may cause illness. If you’re in need of a new water bottle, we’ve got you covered - click here to view our collection.
And of course, wear plenty of sunscreen! The summer sun can be really powerful, and sunscreen will protect your skin from harmful UV rays. Wearing sunscreen is incredibly convenient and widely popular, so you shouldn’t have trouble picking up a bottle or two!
The past few of months have certainly been different, but summer is here and we couldn’t be happier! Be sure to stay safe and healthy this summer, but also have a lot of fun too!
