The risk levels of everyday activities like dining out, going to the gym, and getting a haircut, according to an infectious-disease expert – via

A superb article, mostly for two reasons.

One, it covers a huge range of our everyday activities.

Two, it differentiates into most the activities, delineating what makes it risky or less so, in general.

An excerpt –
Coronavirus transmission is not black and white — some activities are riskier than others, while some should cause little worry.

Covered topics are

  • Gatherings of friends or family
  • Bars
  • Religious functions
  • Movie theaters and sporting events
  • Gyms
  • Restaurants (indoors)
  • Hair and nail salons
  • Dates or gatherings with a couple of friends
  • Beaches
  • Outdoor dining
  • Outdoor activities
  • Shopping
  • Touching mail or groceries

I esp like that the author points out positive things that mitigate risk in an activity, along with things that could make the activity much riskier.

The segments are short yet comprehensive, each has an image to easily “see” the daily life activity in motion. I’ve even shared the post on Facebook where I’ve now seen many other folks have shared it also. I hope you’ll take a look 😊

Be mindful, not only for yourself, but others. We’ll scale through this together 💕

  1. Good information, I hope that more people take the risk seriously and error on the side of caution. I personally will be keeping a distance, wearing a mask and I won’t be going to bars or restaurants anytime soon. Thank goodness I’m perfectly content staying in my home studio! Stay healthy and well my friend!

    • Very wise stance I think too, Tiffany. Bars & restaurants are so high risk, esp indoors. There’s quite a few things that could be done to mitigate risk, on many levels, but few have been implemented or started. We need a big change of direction. Even some of the Federal Reserve governors say as much (make health a priority) – so that’s saying something, lol! ☺️


  2. Thanks for this , Felipe . It was good to see it all laid out so clearly . I think that I will be assessing risks for a good few months yet .
