According to Covid-19 guidelines by the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), "Activities are safer if they are held in outdoor spaces. Indoor spaces with less ventilation where it might be harder to keep people apart are more risky." Thus, an increasing number of individuals are choosing the outdoors to plan a small get-together with close family or friends. This is a movement which can be seen across the world, and here are some tweets which are proof.
