Fresh Air in a Pandemic: How to Enjoy Chicago’s Outdoors Safely

    

After being cooped up while social distancing, get much-needed fresh air and exercise to help stay healthy during the COVID-19 pandemic. While there are dozens of beautiful and refreshing outdoor spaces to explore in Chicago and its surrounding areas, it’s critical that you take precautions to keep yourself and others healthy. Here’s how you can enjoy Chicago’s outdoors safely.

Have a Face Mask Ready

In general, it’s safe to move about outside of your home without wearing a mask if you can maintain a safe distance of at least six feet from other people. Gatherings and crowds can pop up unexpectedly, however, so you should always have your face mask handy in case you find yourself needing it. If you’re ever in doubt that you can stay adequately far away from people, wear your mask out of an abundance of caution.

Avoid Unexpected Contact

Despite our best social distancing efforts, unexpected close contact with other people can still occur without warning. Pay extra attention to your surroundings in places where people may frequently appear, such as walking trails, scenic locations, and rest areas. You should also keep a close eye on small children and pets, who may suddenly run off and approach strangers, which can lead to risky close contact.

Stay Informed About Closures and Restrictions

Responses to the COVID-19 pandemic have been continuously evolving in states, counties, and cities across the country, including in Chicago and its surrounding suburbs. Before you head out to your favorite Chicago-area outdoor destination, check for the latest information about possible closures, rules, and restrictions. If the place you had in mind is temporarily closed, you’ll have an easier time finding an alternative if you’re prepared ahead of time.

By practicing social distancing and taking basic health and safety measures, people can continue to enjoy Chicago’s outdoor attractions going forward in the COVID-19 pandemic.
