It’s understandable that plenty of folks are still concerned about contracting the coronavirus by going to stores and restaurants. But how risky is it really for all of us to start resuming our normal lives?
Well, according to a survey of four public health experts by MLive in Michigan, some activities are definitely more risky than others, so you may want to think about that next time you make plans to go out. The experts suggest keeping a few things in mind before deciding on an activity – proximity to people; the likelihood others will practice safe behavior; indoors or out; exposure time, and personal health risks.
The survey ranked activities based on a risk scale of 1 to ten, and here are some of the most and least risky activities out there:
- Bars and large concerts – 9
