Many local and state jurisdictions have flagged exercise as a key component for maintaining mental and physical health during the outbreak. In a joint statement released by the National Recreation and Parks Association (NRPA), they emphasize how parks provide natural beauty to enjoy, and plenty of open space for individuals to spread out and exercise in accordance with the CDC’s recommendations for social distancing.
