Go Out Smart Stay Apart!
We’ve all been staying home and limiting our outdoor activities for months to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Our efforts are paying off and we’re finally seeing meaningful progress. As the curve continues to flatten and the weather begins to get warmer, cabin fever has set in and most of us are ready to enjoy the fresh air and sunlight.
With Hudson County and State Parks now open to residents and more restrictions being lifted, it’s up to all of us to do our part to keep ourselves and those around us healthy. So if you’re headed out for a quick run, stroll through the park or a bike ride with the family, here’s a few important tips to follow before you head out the door.
