PISC Senior Scholar Eugenia South, MD, and Colleague Raina Merchant, MD, have suggestions for getting outside safely during the current pandemic. South and Merchant highlight the role of spending time outside as a sustainable and proven approach to preserving mental health. In order to safely leverage public outdoor space and nature during COVID-19, social distancing must be maintained.
