Walking SV is OK

The California COVID-19 website has added a “FAQ” (Frequently Asked Questions) page clarifying what’s included in the state “Stay Home” Executive Order. Among the Q&A items covered is clarification that walking (including with pets as per the SVMHA rules) is specifically approved.

*The key caveat is that 6′ separation is mandated for anyone not in your household. That standard measure mandated for public places in addition to ample fresh air is deemed safe, so we can get our exercise and enjoy this wonderful Spring air and views of our green hills.

We’ve added links to the FAQ and the full text PDF file of the Executive Order to our C-19 page here on the SVMHA website.

Excerpts:

  • “Can I still exercise? Take my kids to the park for fresh air? Take a walk around the block?

    Yes. So long as you are maintaining a safe social distance of six feet from people who aren’t part of your household, it is ok to go outside for exercise, a walk or fresh air. Gyms are closed.”

  • “Can I walk my dog? Take my pet to the vet?

    You can walk your dog. You can go to the vet or pet hospital if your pet is sick. Remember to distance yourself at least six feet from other pets and owners.”
