Recommendations - Social Distancing

This contented is borrowed from the RRCA, Read the full story here. We are all in this together, do your part to reduce the chances of making someone else ill. 

  • Don't go out for a run or walk if you are feeling ill or have flu-like symptoms.

  • Do practice social distancing - ensure appropriate spacing between runners; the current recommendation is at least six to eight feet of separation.

  • Do respect community regulations if parks, tracks, and multi-use trails have been closed due to over-use during stay-at-home orders.

  • Do run single-file, not two abreast unless there is ample public space to do so.  Don't force others off of a sidewalk or trail by hogging the space. 

  • Do alter your route or time of day you run if you find it too crowded to ensure appropriate social distancing.

  • Don't spit or “nose rocket” your nose in public – bring along tissues or a small towel or a good old-fashioned hanky if you need to get rid of some snot during your run/walk.

  • Carry your own fluids and avoid contact with public water fountains.

  • Do wash your hands or use hand sanitizer after using a port-a-john.  As NPRA reminds people, prepare for limited access to public restrooms or water fountains.

  • Don't share towels, food, gels, or any other item if you run or walk with family or one close friend.

  • Do tactfully remind others you see out on your run to practice social distancing if you see groups of 3 or more.

  • Do use sidewalks where available in your community.  Most communities have ordinances requiring the use of sidewalks by pedestrians when available. Do not create unsafe driving situations for emergency vehicles by running down the middle of a road. The last thing the medical community needs right now is to treat avoidable accidents and injuries.

  • Don't post group selfies on social media after a run....you shouldn't be running in a group right now.
