Outdoor Activities

It’s heating up in Arizona and many of us are spending more time indoors during this time due to closures of other recreational areas. Getting outdoors can be very beneficial for both mental and physical health!  In Arizona there are always necessary precautions to be taken in order to safely participate in outdoor activities like applying sun protection and having enough water, but now there are a few more additional steps needed to be taken in order to reduce the spread of COVID-19. 

  • Sun exposure may kill the virus on surfaces but it does not prevent people from transmitting the virus between each other outdoors.
  • Exposures to temperatures above 77 degrees fahrenheit will not prevent the virus
  • The virus is still able to spread in warmer temperatures
  • Taking hot baths or using hand dryers are not effective methods for preventing or killing COVID-19
  • Avoid UV lamps or lights, as they can be harmful to the skin and do not prevent infection
