Let’s Change it from Social Distancing to Physical Distancing
Let’s Change it from Social Distancing to Physical Distancing. We need to practice Physical Distancing. Stay in touch with those you care about. We still need each other. So stay social, from a physical distance.
I agree! We must stay in touch with others when we cannot meet face to face. We can still call people, email, text or even video chat with others. Technology is in our favor for this! Take advantage of it!
We can even write an old fashion letter too! Mail it out!
Too many people think they must stay away from everyone else even in the form of communication with calling, texting, chatting, video chats, etc. No! That’s not right! We need each other more than ever!
Health officials state we must stay 6 feet apart and not be in groups of 10 or more to stay safe during this coronavirus pandemic.
How to practice social distancing during a pandemic
Again let’s call it Physical Distancing!
So how can people physically distance themselves? Here are some of the recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the World Health Organization and other leading health groups.
· Opt out of group events. Steer clear of events, whether meetings, sports games, conferences, and other gatherings where large amounts of people congregate together.
· Stick to non-contact greetings. Avoid hugs, kisses and handshakes. Substitute a smile, a wave or a bumping of elbows, instead.
· Practice remote learning. Students who attend large schools, such as high schools, universities and colleges, can continue their studies via remote learning and virtual classes instead of gathering in classrooms.
· Work from home. Many companies are now equipped to allow employees to work from home all the time or a portion of the time. Businesses can encourage employees to stay home and utilize the internet to get their work done.
· Stagger commute times. Commuters in urban areas can consider staggering work hours so that they help curb crowds on public transportation.
· Alter shopping schedules. Try to visit stores in the early morning or late at night when they are less likely to be crowded.
· Make changes in worship practices. Celebrants may have to make modifications to the way they worship. Some are doing Online Services Only and some have done Drive-in Church. Plus use platforms like Zoom to do Small Group or Sunday School. (Video Conferencing)
Common sense is key to stall disease transmission, and social distancing can be an important public health measure.
