The self quarantine doesn't mean that you shouldn't go outside.  It's actually the opposite of that.  You just shouldn't go to places where many people are gathered.

The news came yesterday that schools in Erie and Niagara County would be closed through April 20th.  Many parents said, "What am I going to do with my kids if I can't leave the house?"

There are options.

One of those options is to go to a park.  Get out of the house.  Take in some fresh air and go for a walk.

Governor Cuomo announced today that New York State will be waiving park fees in all state, local and county parks.

The idea is to offer a place for people to go where they won't be gathered closely and spread the virus.
