Kaiser Permanente Weekly Walks suspended for remainder of 2020 season
In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided to suspend our weekly walks for the remainder of the 2020 walking season. It was our hope that we could resume our weekly walks, but with cases of COVID-19 once again on the rise we feel cancelling the program will help protect the health of our walking club members and our community.
We are truly disappointed that we will not be able to join you each week on the Capitol Mall for our walks. We hope that you all continue walking for fitness on your own while maintaining social distance with those outside your household. Here are some tips to help keep you walking.
We are closely monitoring the evolving COVID-19 situation and will reassess our walking programs for our 2021 season from May through September. In the meantime, please do your part to protect yourself and others from the spread of this disease. The best way to protect yourself is by doing the same things you do to avoid getting any other virus — including the flu. These measures include:
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick, even inside your home.
- Put distance between yourself and other people outside your home.
- Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when around others.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily.
- Be alert for symptoms, and take your temperature if symptoms develop.
