Hello! I just wanted to say “Hello” and check everyone, how we communicate, isolate ourselves, stay at home and try to avoid getting coronavirus.
Just because we isolate doesn't mean we can't stay friends and chat, right?
We have MUCH to catch up – I stopped in a long stay when I heard that I had to take refuge at home !! And somehow I got scared, grabbed my things and ran (well, I went) to my parents.
But this post is not about me (unlike 95% of the content in Run Eat Repeat). So let's talk about it another time.
Today I want to share some links and resources. Please pass this on to anyone who may find this helpful. Scroll down to get information on whether you can run or exercise during the outbreak of COVID19 and other health information sites …
Can you work during the outbreak of Coronavirus and Shelter in Place?
I found an article that answers this exact question. I am going to quote it below, I usually rephrase and make a link to the site, but given the important health consequences of this topic, I share it verbally. This is from NPR.org – you can read more here.
People who take to the streets to train are sometimes dishonored on TV and on social media for risky behavior. Is it possible to walk, run or bike on the street?
The White House Coronavirus Guidelines for the 15-day period that began on Monday recommend avoiding “discretionary trips, shopping trips and social visits,” as well as “public gatherings in groups of more than 10 people.” But outdoor exercise is not on the list.
Therefore, unless local regulations state otherwise, the use of fresh air and outdoor exercise is permitted, although it is important to maintain a distance between yourself and others. It is believed that coronavirus spreads mainly through close contact between people – within six feet.
The main mode of transmission is through respiratory droplets.
Outside, airflow is better than in confined spaces. “Outside airflow reduces the risk that one person will transmit the virus to another through droplets in the air,” says Albert Co, an epidemiologist at Yale University. "Therefore, if you go outside and hike or bike or run, and you are not, say, six or ten feet from another person, I would consider this a healthy, safe practice."
Co. also points to serious mental health problems that can be caused or exacerbated when people are locked up.
“According to my personal feelings, if people practice healthy respiratory hygiene, healthy hand hygiene, they physically distance themselves from others, and you train and walk in the park – I think this is actually a good public health practice.”
