As more Connecticut residents get fully vaccinated against COVID-19, people can start getting back to pre-pandemic normalcy and enjoying the things they’ve been missing out on since the pandemic began, including ballparks, time with family, birthday parties and summer activities.
It’s time to book some summer adventures, and ConnectiCare, a leading health plan based in Connecticut, has a few ideas:
Yoga In Our City
Yoga is a great way to exercise and decompress. While virtual classes offer flexibility, ConnectiCare understands that you might be missing in-person classes and connections. Celebrate being back outside by taking yoga outdoors! ConnectiCare has teamed up with Yoga In Our City to provide yoga classes in various park locations in cities including Bridgeport, Hartford, New Haven, New London, Waterbury and Willimantic. Everyone is welcome to practice, for free, from now through October 10. Visit Yoga In Our City for more information.
Go to a Baseball Game
Sports spectatorship is back! The type of camaraderie that you can only get from attending sporting events in person is unmatched. Cheer on the Hartford Yard Goats at a baseball game this summer. It’s also a great time to indulge in some of your favorite ballpark treats. Because let’s face it: a burger at a baseball game over a burger anywhere else is just better. Visit the Hartford Yard Goats website to get tickets to the next home game.
Health and Wellness Classes
We all want to live healthier lives, but sometimes it’s difficult to figure out the best approach to take. That’s why ConnectiCare offers free health and wellness classes at the ConnectiCare Centers. You can walk in for in-person support or choose from a range of virtual classes on topics like getting back into a fitness routine, eating mindfully, meal prep and more. Check out the schedule for upcoming events.
Support Your Local Farmers Markets
Head to a local farmers market and shop for fresh produce, artisan preserves and other delicious treats supplied by local businesses. Take some of your yummy purchases and create a healthy brunch or fun charcuterie spread for people you love, whether you gather indoors, or have a picnic at the park.
ConnectiCare reminds people that it’s important to continue working together to protect each other and keep Connecticut safe by getting fully vaccinated and taking proper precautions to curb the spread of COVID-19. Learn more about the COVID-19 vaccine at connecticare.com/choosehealth.
