A lot of events and places are going strong and coming back to Houston for good, following all kind of good health restrictions such as washing hands and social distancing! For example, the popular event Houston Restaurant Weeks (HRW) is been here in Houston since August 1st and will still be going until September 7th!
Protecting its people and keeping them healthy is Houston’s first priority – which is why even when places are reopening, every detail is being taken care of following the restrictions: using a mask while being outside and it’s not allowed for 10 people to be reunited in the same place. Still, Houston reopens the places you need the most during these times, so you can still live comfortably and enjoy it!
This year has had its up and downs, and we still need to take care of ourselves in order to keep being healthy and enjoying life anywhere in the world. However, since it’s summer and the different places in Houston are aware of this, it’s only natural that most of these places plan something for their beloved people to enjoy, even while staying home!
Houston is doing everything that's possible for its people to engage in new activities, even during these times in which we are adjusting to a new reality in order to keep going affronting the given circumstances. Sometimes, it is necessary to take a break and just spend some time to relax, have some fun, and maybe learn new things. This way, there's no better thing to learn that our precious culture and art!
It’s still not recommended to assist to big events where there are a lot of people reunited; however, Houston has some new and innovative activities to allow people to enjoy while they are still social distancing and aware of the corresponding restrictions. A lot of places and activities are now available for people, in order to assist to these; you need to make sure of the rules so you can be prepared.
Daily life in Houston is progressively going back to normal, following certain restrictions that allow us to work and share, as long as it's possible and it keeps people healthy. As places are currently reopening in Houston, it is possible for you to change your routine, as it may have gotten boring and repetitive during these last weeks, and we will tell which activities you can do to change your day a little bit.
People all around the world are constantly trying to adapt to this new situation that we’re going through right now, such as it’s being in self-isolation and social distancing, and Houston is included. Most restaurants are offering “quarantine survival kits”, which include things such as eggs, meat, and most essential grocery stuff that people need when they’re at home, like toilet paper. One of these places is the well-known Bernie’s Burger Bus, which has transformed itself in a bodega in order to help the people in Houston. Located in Bellaire, it offers ground beef, chili, and many ingredients like these for people to buy and has decided to use a “name your price” system getting to help everyone, and continues to offer takeout and delivery regarding their menu items. On another but related note, Local Foods is working with a pop-up grocery market that offers a lot of food like milk, fresh veggies, cheese, coffee, and if you want to enjoy your time at home in a different way, they also offer wine and beer; being in quarantine doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy yourself, so don’t forget to take advantage of this! This place is also offering their usual menu items, but just like every other restaurant, for pickup or delivery. Don’t forget to enjoy your time at home with your family and, take some time for yourself to rest as well. If you are working from home, remember to stay hydrated and take care of your health. Wash your hands regularly and only go out if it’s necessary! These times are hard, but Houston thanks you for collaborating with the cause and staying home for the well-being of yourself and those who are around you. Our Uptown Team wishes you well, and hopes you stay home and healthy during these times!
Due to the COVID-19, we need to be socially responsible and stay safe. This way, we prove that we care not only about ourselves, but also about everyone around us that we love deeply. Even though we are at home, we can still enjoy these times to spend time with the people we love the most, and Houston offers you some options that are great if you need to buy something without going outside your house.
During these hard times is better to be cautious whether you are alone or with your family, for your safety and the others stay home, do not go outside unless it is something necessary like food, take the dog on a short walk or if you live with someone with special needs like autism.
