After the extended Vitamin D deficiency that has constituted the past few months, you are probably excited to spend time outside in the sunshine. Summer has definitely arrived, and while it may look a little different than last year, there are still plenty of ways to take advantage of the warm weather.
Note: If you’re stepping outdoors, stay safe and keep your mask on. The confusing and contradictory stance on masks from political leaders is discouraging, but the science speaks for itself. The results of many studies and analysis of epidemiological data have supported the hypothesis that mask-wearing reduces transmission! Keep yourself as safe as possible.
