Why It’s Not Time To Get Lax About COVID-19

Ignoring social distancing outdoors

Again, the CDC reports that distance and time of exposure are the biggest predictors of getting the virus. And while it can be annoying to have to talk loudly when you sit in your chairs, six feet apart from friends while hanging out, it’s not yet time to huddle up around a fireplace. And if you think the weather where you are weakens the virus, unfortunately, that’s not true, according to research. Humidity and temperature have little bearing on the virus’s strength, so those enjoying a little sunshine and warmer weather right now are no safer from the virus than those in cold temperatures.
