Phase 5 (?), the new normal – whatever you want to call it, we’ve unlocked a new level in this twisted video game called Coronacation.
Let’s take a quick trip down memory lane for….. fun. Shall we? In May there were drive-in movies, tennis, golf, and farmers markets. In June we got the chance at patio and indoor dining and libraries to hold us over. July *blessed* us with the reopening of museums, zoos, aquariums, u-pick farms and even malls, plus a few other things to do. And gyms started pulling together outdoor fitness classes when and wherever they could. Raise your hand 🙋 if you’ve worked out in the rain this summer.
Thankfully come late-August, we’ve got a couple more things to do! Read on for the 2 things you can do this weekend that you couldn’t do before.


Friendly reminder: now that these additional business types are able to reopen, they need your support! Let’s get out there and show them how much we care. And before we get too far into this, let us just say that we highly encourage everyone to step out responsibly and safely during WNY’s continued phased reopening – not only in order to keep our region healthy but to also allow for continued progress in getting local business and organizations opened up! Wear a mask, keep your distance, don’t over do it, guys.

1. Hit the Gym

While a lot of fitness studios and gyms have been doing their best to offer outdoor classes, they finally got the green light to reopen indoors at limited capacity. Everyone is required to wear masks at all times and you must sign a waiver when you enter that can be used to contact trace, plus all machines must be wiped down between each use.
Check with your go-to gym or fitness studio to see when and how they plan to reopen!


2. Go Bowling

Bowling alleys are a go as of last Monday, allowed to reopen at 50% capacity and with everyone wearing masks. You’ll only be able to get food and drink via table service, as bar service is still shut down for the time being.
Check with your local bowling alley to see when and how they plan to reopen!
