This warm weather has us all craving summertime activities, which means it’s hard to resist the urge to picnic! With restrictions easing up a bit, we can’t help but wonder if there’s a way to safely gather with a small group of friends and share food.

The good news — If you’re careful, you can dine outside with minimal risk of endangering yourself or others. Globeo knows five tips to help you plan for a socially distant picnic.

1. Location, Location, Location!

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]If you have a private green space (backyard, garden, golf course), consider holding your picnic close to home. Or, plan your park visit in advance. Check the park’s opening hours and to avoid the crowds, try to go at an off-time.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”16px”][vc_column_text]

2. Think Before You Pack!

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Come prepared with a mask, hand sanitizer, disinfectant spray, and gloves. Keep in mind that some park services may be restricted, like bathroom usage, functioning water fountains(so bring plenty of water), and public picnic tables. A good picnic calls for a comfy picnic blanket or, if you have trouble sitting on the ground, bring lawn chairs[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”16px”][vc_column_text]

3. Prep The Menu!

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Meeting with friends? Try to coordinate menus beforehand. You can each try your hand at the same recipe and compare results. However, If you do decide to cook for your friends, cooking is cleaning, coronaviruses can be killed by cooking foods to the appropriate internal temperatures. To ensure everyone stays safe, sanitize all prep surfaces with disinfectant before preparing food. It’s also super important to wash produce or buy pre-washed produce to keep everyone healthy. Click here for easy picnic recipes.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”16px”][vc_column_text]

4. BYO…..Everything!

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]To help keep risk low, be sure to bring your own picnic items with you. Bringing your own chair can help you keep a safe distance from your fellow picnic-goers. Bringing your own utensils is another great way to reduce risks. Most importantly, bring some tissues to cover any coughing or sneezing. No tissue? No biggie, use the bend of your arm instead.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”16px”][vc_column_text]

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]It’s getting very difficult to stay apart, but maintaining social distance has never been more important as we slowly start to relax on restrictions. Whether you’re setting up lawn chairs, laying down picnic blankets, or gathering for a tailgate get-together, be sure to keep that six-foot space between one another.
