Webinar: Closing Streets to Create Space for Walking and Biking During COVID-19
April 2, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm EDT
During this time of extreme social distancing, much of the local guidance includes outdoor exercise as essential, and many public health experts are reinforcing the importance of being physically active. It’s vital to our wellness and boosting our immunity. However, many communities don’t have outdoor facilities equipped to handle the surge in use, especially as trails and parks close and limit access. For example, typical sidewalks, especially those in denser communities, are not wide enough to allow for 6 feet of social distancing.
