The world is starting to open again and we are all eager to get out and get back to a normal routine. But how can we stay active while maintain our distance from others?
Getting Active Outside
If you feel like you need to be outside, there are several bike and walking trails in our area. The Cedar River Trail connects to the Cedar Valley trail at the trailhead on Boyson Road in Hiawatha. The trails interconnect to the north and the south. Other trails include Sac and Fox Trail, CEMAR Trail, and Boyson Trail.
There are also trails at Noelridge and Ellis parks, as well as all the parks in Hiawatha. Tennis and basketball courts are now open, as is the disc golf course at Clark, Ellis, and Jones parks.
Keeping your distance from others and using sanitizer after playing ball, or handling equipment others use, is the key to being safe during this time. Even though it seems like things are getting back to normal, COVID-19 is still a threat, and we can’t let our guard down. Masks, hand wipes, and sanitizers might seem like an inconvenience, but using them will keep yourself safe, and everyone else, much safer.
Even though many events had to be cancelled this summer, there are still countless fun ways you can stay active. – Cindy Petersen
