“The final word on outdoor recreation? Of course, go out and be active. It's important for your mental and physical health. But, choose wisely, be prepared and stay safe,” Claudia Finkelstein, a professor of family medicine told CNN.
Make a plan in advance: This is not the summer to indulge your spontaneous side. Make a plan in advance, including making a reservation, charting out your meals and bringing everything you'll need for your stay to avoid making extra trips to the store.
Bring supplies with you: Think about bringing additional cleaning supplies and hand sanitizer. Also, may want to pack your own toilet paper and paper towels.
Maintain distance: Even at your campsite, make sure to think about the distance between yourself and people who don't live in the same household as you. Social distancing can definitely be accomplished when camping, with some proper planning.
Follow the rules: As noted, some campsites have some new rules in place this summer. Some places may have trails closed or require masks in public areas. Following the rules will help keep you and other visitors safe.
