Physical (Social) Distancing:
The concept of 'social distancing' has been passed around as the key activity every community member should undertake to help stymie the spread of the COVID-19 virus. However, health experts actually indicate that the term 'physical distancing' more accurately describes what is required of each of us. Limiting the amount of time spend physically present with other people also limits the risk of the virus being spread and transmitted. Cancel group events, such as weddings and birthdays, and do not allow visitors inside your home. Only head outside your home when absolutely necessary, such as to obtain groceries or head to work. If you do have to enter into public spaces, do not engage in physical contact, such as hugging, shaking hands, or letting other people pet your dog. Instead, keep a 'pool noodle's' distance (2 metres, or 6-8 feet) apart from others at all times.
However, there are still many ways you can maintain social contact with family, friends, and neighbours, without having to see them in-person. Consider making phone calls to loved ones, or using digital applications such as Skype, Zoom, Google Hangouts, Facetime, or Facebook Messenger to enjoy face-to-face communication. Even as we must distance ourselves for our collective physical health and safety, we should still reach out to one another for our collective mental and emotional wellbeing!
