COVID-19 has taken over the world and all of our lives. Everything and everyone from home, work, to school life is affected by the pandemic. And with the summer holidays approaching, everyone is looking for low-risk activities to do this summer, especially parents with small kids.
Even though people are getting vaccinated, the risk of COVID-19 still lingers in the summer of 2021. So we will be suggesting activities you can do close to home or with minimal contact with other people. These activities carry a low risk of COVID-19 transmission. Please remember to wear your masks, use sanitizers and maintain social distancing in public spaces.
Here are low-risk things you can do during the COVID summer of 2021
Visit drive-in movies
While most movie theatres are closed because of the pandemic, drive-in movie theatres are making a comeback. Drive-in movies allow viewers to enjoy the experience of watching movies together at a distance. You have to drive up to the drive-in movies and park at your spot. You get to experience the movie without the risk of coming in physical contact with people.
This activity is most recommended for couples as it can prove to be a romantic date idea. Also, you can bring popcorn or other food you want to eat while watching the movies.
Have a family picnic
Another outdoor activity that you can do in the pandemic plans a picnic. Pack up food and beverages and visit a nearby park. You can also have a picnic in your backyard, patio, or deck. It would be best if you remembered to only invite people who are in your quarantine bubble.
Also, keep in mind that the park you are visiting is not crowded at the time. You should also maintain social distancing guidelines if there are other people around the park. A family picnic can be refreshing for couples as well as parents and children. Children can run around and get all of their energy out.
Camping is also something you can do with your family or roommates during this pandemic. Just remember to book a camping spot that does not have many people around. Make sure to take your essentials like food, water, and a sleeping bag.
Camping can also be a fun activity for your kids. You can go camping with your kids at a national park or just in your backyard. Make a bonfire and roast some marshmallows. This activity can be soothing and will also be lots of fun. At night, you can look at the stars and enjoy your time with your family.
Not doing lots of outdoor activity has been one of the hardest things during the pandemic. So going hiking with your pets on a nearby hiking trail can prove to be a refreshing activity. Again, remember to go on a safe hiking trail that is not too crowded. Wear masks while passing people.
Similar to camping, going on a hike will help you appreciate nature. You will able to breathe some fresh air and get some exercise as well. Take water as well as some healthy snacks along on your hike.
