As summer is approaching, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
announced that fully vaccinated Americans will no longer have to wear face masks in a statement made on May 16. With COVID-19 restrictions being lifted and vaccines coming out, the amount of summer activities are endless.
This summer will definitely be different than last summer. In 2020, the majority of summer activities for children and teens were shut down leaving them with nothing to do. Kids were forced to sit in their homes without socialization.
Students and families now have the ability to spend the summer doing a variety of activities. Students can go on teen tours, sleepaway camps, participate in community service and even attend local day camps.
The borders have opened up for most countries and flying on a plane has become more common for people who are fully vaccinated. Some borders are still closed in Europe, Central America, and South America. Students can also enjoy their summer without even having to leave Parkland or Coral Springs.
“I am so excited to be able to leave my house and travel this summer,” sophomore Olivia Binder said. “My family and I are going to a bunch of tropical islands.”
