As the pandemic draws on, families around the country are realizing that we are in this for the long-haul. While we may have been content to shelter-in-place, hunker down, and bake bread in the first several months, many are beginning to realize that this pandemic is not going to let up anytime soon, and that we need to adjust to a new normal by finding more sustainable ways to attend to our mental and emotional health.

So in the spirit of keeping those most at risk physically safe, while still caring for the emotional needs of our families, we've rounded up a few COVID-safe activities you can do in the Plano area.
