Today, we’re sharing suggestions on what you should and should not do as people are being implored to practice social distancing as much as possible.
For starters, strongly consider avoiding social gatherings and if you do decide to gather, make sure it isn’t more than the number recommended. The fewer the people, the fewer the chances of spreading the virus to someone else. Don’t forget to keep your six-foot distance.
It’s impossible to tell if someone is infected with the coronavirus by simply looking at them. As it is possible to become infected by someone even before that person develops any noticeable symptoms, and as you alone are ultimately responsible for protecting yourself, take precautions and limit your exposure to others.
There will likely come a time when you do have to step outside, perhaps to go buy some essentials such as groceries or medications. Try to refrain from getting too close to others, consider wearing a face mask and if possible, disinfect objects such as the handles of shopping carts as these are touched by hundreds of people every day.
While keeping your distance from others is critical, this doesn’t necessarily mean locking yourself up indoors and never stepping outside. You may be able to enjoy walking or exercise outdoors provided you maintain social distancing recommendations. Further, there are creative ways to deepen your connection with others through social media, messaging or phone calls in the absence of direct physical contact.
