The Recipe For Social Distancing: This Summer Does Not Have to Be a Bummer.

Posted by Lianne Stokes on

A Personal Space Summer is always the busiest season. In between providing the latest pieces for home remodels we always receive an influx of orders for dishware and everything dining. This 2020 Summer is a bit different for all of us. Some of us are isolated and fearful during a global health pandemic. We are sending love and light to our community who is struggling with homeschooling, camp cancelations, and working from home. Several of our clients have voiced to us that they long to get out and enjoy nature but wanted tips on how to stay safe from Covid-19. 

Being a novel virus, the research is ever-evolving. But we are confident in recent findings that scientists have found the virus transmits more easily indoors and that being out in the open air is a healthier option while socializing. This May 23rd, 2020 article in the New York Times sums it up beautifully. Humans transmit the virus while talking via droplets. You can get the virus outdoors, but it's not as likely. Plus, wind dilutes the virus. A breeze continues to be a welcome thing. While outdoors, remain 6 feet away from anyone you do not live with. Wear a mask. While eating or drinking  it's hard to do, so be cautious of not speaking while you chew :-) 

If you're going to host a picnic or a BBQ this summer, remember, set out blankets 6 feet apart and have hand sanitizer available as well as soap and water for your guests. Make sure the communal bathroom has extra sanitizing measures such as Lysol spray and Clorox wipes. Ask your guests to wear masks. Now you're ready to gather on the lawn with your blankets and your shades, here are some recipes to ensure your taste buds pop.
