Remember, staying active is a great tool for keeping yourself and your family physically and mentally healthy, as long as you maintain a six-foot distance from people outside of your household and wear a face covering.

The six-foot distance is based on current guidance as of March 25, 2020. Be sure to follow the most current guidance from the Oregon Health Authority and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on keeping yourself, your family, and your community safe from coronavirus. As always, be sure to stay home if you are at all sick.
