How risky is staying in a hotel?

Updated: Aug 16, 2020

As states open up, how much your life changes is in your hands. I found this article by NPR helpful. It gives you a great overview of the risk of common summer activities, summarized here:

  • A BYOB backyard gathering with one other household: low to medium risk

  • Eating indoors at a restaurant: medium to high risk

  • Attending a religious service indoors: high risk

  • Spending the day at a popular beach or pool: low risk

  • An outdoor celebration such as a wedding with more than 10 guests: medium to high risk

  • Using a public restroom: low to medium risk

  • Letting a friend use your bathroom: low risk

  • Going to a vacation house with another family: low risk

  • Staying at a hotel: low to medium risk

  • Getting a haircut: medium to high risk

  • Going shopping at a mall: risk varies

  • Going to a nightclub: high risk

  • Going camping: low risk

  • Exercising outdoors: low risk

We’re going camping in a couple of weeks, and I can’t wait. What was/is your first big venture out?
