Safe Social Distancing

As Californians begin to adjust to new rules and regulations on where they can and can’t go due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many are seeking options for getting out of their house in a safe way. Places like restaurants, bars, movie theaters, gyms, bowling alleys and salons have now been ordered to shut down by Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and California Governor Gavin Newsom. However, there are still a number of safe ways Angelenos can participate in social distancing activities in Los Angeles.

Virtual Happy Hour

Just because bars and restaurants are closed doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy happy hour, with apps like Zoom and Houseparty gaining popularity for uniting groups of friends for a video celebration. Pour yourself a drink and toast the camera for a fun way to stay social during social distancing.

Live Streaming Music Sets

Many musicians have taken to Instagram Live to continue performing for massive crowds, each in their own home. DJs like Diplo and DJ D-Nice have made waves through the quarantine by spinning playlists for fans. Check out your favorite artist’s Instagram to see if they’ll be going live for an intimate performance during self-isolation.

Low-Contact Sports

While the NBA, NFL and MLB have all ceased operations, that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy your own sporting events with select low-contact activities. Sports like tennis and volleyball are great for staying active, with the proper precautions in place to minimize spreading germs. Even more casual sports like frisbee or badminton are great for a quarantine break.

Dog Park

Plenty of LA citizens have their pets to worry about during the statewide Stay at Home order. For those with dogs, a visit to the dog park might be just what you and your pup need to clear your mind. Dogs are not known to contract or carry COVID-19, so them playing with other dogs is perfectly safe as a social distancing activity.

Road Trip

Why not take the extra time on your hands and go for a drive? If you’re road tripping with a friend, wearing face masks helps keep your germs to yourself along with making use of the backseat and cracking the windows for proper ventilation.

Swimming & Jacuzzi

Anyone with swimming pool or jacuzzi access is in luck, as the CDC confirms that the heat, humidity and chlorine will inactivate the COVID-19 virus. A properly-maintained pool or jacuzzi is perfectly safe to lounge in during the statewide quarantine.
