Why Outside is a Safer Choice

COVID-19 spreads more easily indoors than outdoors. Studies show that people are more likely to be exposed to COVID-19 when they are closer than 6 feet apart from others for longer periods of time.

You are more likely to be exposed to COVID-19 when you

  • Attend crowded, poorly ventilated indoor events
  • Have close contact with infected people at home

You are less likely to be exposed to COVID-19 when you

  • Attend outdoor activities
  • Stay at least 6 feet apart
  • Limit the amount of time spent with people who don’t live with you
