Make it easier for people to exercise

The new exercise restrictions will negatively impact the health of Caymanians as many will be unable to exercise outdoors. 

My disabled relative, who swims in the sea for exercise, will be unable to get much-needed outdoor exercise. Also, many of us drive to our place of exercise because we live on narrow streets with no sidewalks, making walking from our home difficult and dangerous, especially when walking with a young child or pushing a stroller. 

At this time, Caymanians of all ages desperately need outdoor exercise and sunshine (Vitamin D!) to boost our immune system and preserve our mental/emotional health. Our government officials certainly display an abundance of caution, but can we plead for a little common sense? This type of ‘cure’ may indeed make us sicker than the virus.
