Another Friday has come around—another work week done. We know you’re probably itching to have some weekend fun, but if you’re like us, you’re probably also wondering what kind of activities are safe to take part in right now. To try to help out with that, we’ve picked out a few goings-on in the area this weekend that are either virtual, outdoors, or in venues that have established COVID-19 protocols to help keep their patrons safe. Whatever you decide to do this weekend, be sure and check out the COVID safety rules at any locations you visit, as many are changing in the face of the current crisis situation. And to paraphrase Dr. Dobbs, remember that you can never completely eliminate the risk of being exposed, but you can usually make choices to mitigate that risk.
