During these unfortunate times with Coronavirus in full swing, it's important to take measures to limit your exposure, which is what Social Distancing attempts to address. You may have heard about Social Distancing on the news or from a friend and maybe you're wondering how you can do what you can to limit the spread of the virus without feeling like you have to isolate yourself from the rest of humanity.
In this day and age, we have many tools at our disposal that will make our self-quarantines far more liveable, even enjoyable.
Talk to friends and relatives on the phone or even via Face talk apps like Skype or FaceTime, instead of meeting up with friends and family to engage with them in person.
Stop shaking hands -- we know this might be an uncomfortable adjustment, but America is one of the last cultures that still holds on to this perhaps outdated mode of showing acknowledgment or respect. Adopt a respectful bow until it's more acceptable to shake hands again. You might even develop new healthier habits moving forward that will limit your exposure to germs.
Working from home, if you have the option, is another great way to practice social distancing, since so many of us get sick from our coworkers coming into work sick.
Stay away from larger gatherings. Wash your hands frequently and often and avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. Stop touching handrails and use a napkin when touching door handles that get used by the public.
