All traditional AVA walks have been cancelled through April 30. National
Walking Week walks have been cancelled.
Contact any walk organizers for other events (including year-round
events) to determine if they are still being held or there are alternate
arrangements for registration. You can find that information for any
event, any state at the AVA.org site
If you use the sign-in log and stamp, be sure to sanitize your hands
before and after touching it, for your safety and the safety of others.
The CDC now recommends wearing a cloth face covering when you are out
Here are easy ways to make them, including 2 no-sew ways, one simply
using a bandana and rubber bands or ponytail holders:
DO NOT WALK WITH ANYONE WHO IS NOT A MEMBER OF YOUR HOUSEHOLD UNLESS YOU
CAN STAY 6 FEET APART AT ALL TIMES.
Actually, a study found that staying 15 or more feet apart is best when
walking (especially without a face covering).
Stay home as much as possible. When walking outdoors in public, avoid
other people. Take enhanced precautions to avoid touching surfaces and
then touching your face. (If possible, touch surfaces only with a tissue
or your sleeve). Wash hands with soap and water when available, but
carry hand sanitizer for other times. One study found the virus could
survive for over 24 hours on a metal surface.
If you have any symptoms such as a cough or fever, it is best not to go
out in public at this time, to protect those who are vulnerable.
