Eaton Canyon closed for the weekend because hordes of people showed up without masks and no social distancing.

So funny, that phrase was exactly what ran through my mind as I drove through Laguna Beach and past Crystal Cove this weekend.

I was at top of the world on Saturday and there were people there but nothing crazy. I heard Blackstar Canyon was a complete disaster.

I dont think there is science supporting or backing up the requirement of masks in large open air outdoor locations with exposure to elements and sun etc.

Not saying its smart to be that packed near people out on the trail, however risk of exposure at a place like that and in those circumstance are at the extreme low end of the spectrum in comparison to being at your local walmart or work place.

Because breathing harder may release more virus into the air, Ben Levine, physician and director of the Institute for Exercise and Environmental Medicine at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital, told NPR we should double our distance while exercising outside.

I would still want to see this backed up by evidence that people have contracted the virus by being outside near others who are exercising. One thing about passing or being passed by joggers etc. is that you are in close proximity for only a few seconds. Also, the large volume of air and wind dilutes and disperses any pathogens very quickly. It's not at all like being in a closed room for an extended time.

Not saying it couldn't happen, but it still seems highly unlikely that a person jogging past you is going to infect you, no matter how hard they are breathing. I looked at your link and even those "experts" admit they have no actual evidence or data, they are just speculating. And, I might add, erring very far on the side of caution. If I played tennis, I would certainly feel it unnecessary to wipe down the net with disinfectant wipes.

We can't have nice things (like leaving the house, going to the beach, restaurants etc) if people don't follow the guidelines for social distancing, wearing masks, etc.

Do the peeps in the first picture look like they are jogging past anyone? A few seconds of exposure?

This is why I like having weekdays off and not weekends. I was at Black Star Wednesday and it wasn't bad at all.

This is also why I normally go out of my way to get away from cities and into the wilderness areas when I can. I've yet to run into any crowds or closures in my favorite areas, thankfully.
