In a normal year, Memorial Day is the unofficial start of summer as millions of people head to beaches, parks and backyards to take part in any of a number of fun activities. But with much of the United States being on some form of lockdown due to the outbreak of COVID-19, celebrations are likely going to look very different this time around.
While it may be tempting to rush back to normal life as the temperature rises and we get an extra day off, it’s still important to be cautious and take precautions to avoid the further spread of the disease.
