BDB went remote at the beginning of March and we encouraged our team to follow the experts’ safety guidelines and continue to limit contact with anyone outside of their households, keeping any gatherings small. Here are our shelter-in-place spots and tips on how to make the best of summer during the pandemic:

Among the challenges brought by COVID-19 is how to enjoy summer during a pandemic. But the constant threat of contracting or spreading COVID-19 is still very much present. Though some places are beginning to reopen, the virus is not gone and there are still important safety guidelines that everyone should keep in mind.  Our team members sharing their tips and locations on how to enjoy summer with low risk activities.

Staying physically active is one of the best things you can do for your mental health. Running is low risk as long as you are aware of your surroundings and keep off crowded paths. Sports—like golf or tennis—are some other great choices because there is no physical contact.

Visiting parks, trails, and other open outdoor areas are great ways to stay active while still staying six feet apart. However we recommend choosing to visit less popular outdoor areas, where there is limited sharing of equipment and resources. 

A road trip—this is the team’s preferred mode of travel this summer; but only with members of their households.

Working from home can be stressfull at times and take twice the amount of energy to keep productive—especially if you have children to homeschool. It’s important to remind ourselves to be thankful that we have the opportunity to spend more time with our loved ones.
