Outdoor Recreation Industry and Coronavirus
The outdoor industry takes the health and well-being of our partners, employees and customers very seriously. This is why during the coronavirus pandemic we are focused on helping Americans get through this time as safely and sanely as possible.
We all know the healing power of nature and the outdoors – from John Muir 150 years ago to public health experts today during this unprecedented time. And we all know that engaging in our favorite recreation activity – boating, RVing, climbing, motorcycling, camping, fishing, biking or whatever – does wonders for our health and well-being. However, we have to be smart about getting outside in this public health emergency.
As more parts of the U.S. see closures and recommendations for more social distancing, we all need to find ways to manage the stress and uncertainty. While working from home and with children out of school, unable to go about our normal routines or see our aging relatives, a daily walk, run or hike or weekend camping can be important to your physical and mental health. Just practice social distancing while doing your favorite activity.
