In today’s world, getting outside is important. The current recommendation is to stay close to home. Only travel with your own household, and try to stay 6′ apart from others you may encounter. Wear a mask when you get this close to others.
Explore your neighborhood! If you visit the Crosstown Trail, here are some updates you should be aware of.

SF Rec and Park Trails Open
From SF Rec & Park: “During these unprecedented times, we would like to assure you that our parks, trails and open spaces remain open to allow people to go outside and get some fresh air. Parks provide many benefits that are essential to the wellbeing of our communities. Exercise and spending time in nature can improve both our mental and physical health. Spending just 20 minutes a day outdoors can significantly lower stress hormones while regular exercise can boost our cardiovascular health and immune system.”
