Risk versus reward: How safe are popular summer outdoor activities?

“There’s a tremendous urge for American’s to get out,” Dr. Andrew Noymer, a Public Health Professor at University of California Irvine, told ABC News. “You can feel it.” … “In the fall I’m expecting things to get worse, not better. Respiratory diseases always get worse in the fall,” he said. “People need to have a summer break. We can’t just stay in the basement for 24 months until the vaccine comes.” … “Remember: we’re in the land of trade-offs now. The only zero-risk activity is staying at home,” Noymer noted. “It’s about balancing risk versus rewards.”
