In the United States, we are experiencing a national emergency over the Coronavirus pandemic.
One of steps to prevent the spread of COVID-19 (along with things such as washing your hands for at least 20 seconds, disinfecting surfaces around your home or work, and covering your mouth when you sneeze or cough) is social distancing.
For a period of time, it’s wise to avoid crowds as much as possible, put some space between you and others and stock up on supplies so you can avoid crowds as much as possible.
I think it’s also worth mentioning now, that it’s not a time to isolate completely. We still need to communicate, and fortunately with technology we can do that easier than ever before. Phone calling, FaceTime, Video conferencing, social media, etc all allow us to communicate without physically being in the room with the people we are communicating with. Lets use these resources to take bolder actions. The Opposite of Fear speaks to this.
Call your family members. Call your friends. Make sure you’re on the same page.
