    Experts rate the risks of 14 common summer activities (www.npr.org)

    It’s been around two months of quarantine for many of us. The urge to get out and enjoy the summer is real. But what’s safe? We asked a panel of infectious disease and public health experts to rate the risk of summer activities, from backyard gatherings, to a day at the pool, to sharing a vacation house with another household.

    One big warning: Your personal risk depends on your age and health, the prevalence of the virus in your area, and the precautions you take during any of these activities. Also, many areas continue to restrict the activities described here, so check your local laws.

    And there’s no such thing as a zero-risk outing right now. As states begin allowing businesses and public areas to reopen, decisions about what’s safe will be up to individuals. It can help to think through the risks the way the experts do.

The result is a $23.5 million mansion that, design-wise, is quintessential South Florida: a white stone façade, a bright living room with soaring 32-foot ceilings, marble flooring and mother-of-pearl ceiling treatments. It’s the amenities that add a splash of Vegas glam to the place, making it a truly unique offering.
