COVID 19 and Venturing Out

Indeed COVID 19 made the world stand still in many respects. Many states and many countries started opening back up again a few months ago. The United States was among many. Unlike many other ‘developed’ nations the United States remains the leader in COVID 19 cases. We would like to think of ourselves as global leaders, however, this is not quit what was meant by that. Some were eager to re open as closing contributed to the economic hardship of many and caused several businesses large and small to close their doors for good. Nonetheless, venturing out has not been easy as states all over, such as Florida, continue to struggle with spikes in COVID 19 cases. Many states as Governor Northam said, were left to fight a biological war by themselves. Indeed, states were left without a true and clear national COVID 19 plan.

For the most part, we stay home as much as we can. We wear our masks and practice social distancing among other precautions. We have begun to venture out slowly to some of our old routines. In the spirit of good health: the gym is one of them. We first visited our old gym, re toured the facility, and reviewed their COVID 19 health measures. We mapped out our return and exercise plan. After asking a few follow up questions and getting a lay of the ‘new’ land so to speak we started back our old exercise regimen and have begun to work on our physical fitness again: what we believe is one of the 3 pillars of overall health (exercise, health (being disease free) and diet.

With everyone we know being impacted by COVID 19, we wanted to share some information about free and local testing (Norfolk, VA, USA). We encourage you to locate a (free) testing location if you are not located in Norfolk, VA. Some congressman are stating that testing was a missed opportunity when reopening. As we reopen some of us are faced with work environments that may unintentionally expose us to COVID 19. Indeed we are all susceptible leaving many of us questioning if we have COVID 19? What do we do if we do have COVID 19? These are definitely scary times and we understand because we truly are all in this together. We encourage everyone to make informed decisions and to inform those around you if you are indeed positive for COVID 19. Many people have survived and we hope that time will be on your side should you or a loved one have to face overcoming this virus. We wish everyone great health. Remember healthy is the New Normal. As we know the communities impacted the most were those with preexisting conditions. How has COVID 19 impact you and your family? How have things changed for you since COVID 19? How have you cooped with the pandemic? Share your comments below. Thank you to the City of Norfolk for providing this resource and to those who have shared it.
