Is it Safe to Run in Groups, now?

Recommended Posts

I still feel that it is not that safe to run in groups yet. Hence i prefer to run alone now or with someone in the household. The virus is still on the rise gradually after Phase 2 opening and we still have to be vigilant and stay clear of unknowns. Some pointers i got from the article.

What do you all think??

Before you consider running with a partner or small group, ask yourself:

  • Are there any restrictions on activities or gatherings in my area?
  • Are coronavirus cases in my community increasing or decreasing?
  • Is community spread low?
  • Am I feeling sick?
  • Will those who I’m running with stay home if they’re feeling sick?
  • Are we running in an area where we can spread out?
  • Are we running in an area where we won’t come in contact with others?
  • Have I or my training partners been in close proximity with others for an extended period of time, such as at a bar or restaurant, an office, or club?
  • Do I live with anyone who is immunocompromised?

@AutumnRunner Agreed. Covid-19 is still present and some countries are not able to handle the current situation now (increasing cases, resources exhausted etc).

We can do our part here by running alone and going to places which are not so crowded. Good pointers by Runners World there.

i strongly believe that humans will still win this war with the virus, hence all runners just have to be a little more patient...
