After a year in quarantine, outside is finally opening back up full force. As more start to get vaccinated, and coronavirus cases are decreasing, people are becoming warmed up to stepping out into the new normal and start living again. For some, the “new normal” looks like going out with your mask on and staying six feet away and for others, it’s taking that risk and living life like it’s 2019.
