Social distancing also called “physical distancing,” means keeping space between yourself and other people outside of your home. To practice social or physical distancing:
~Stay at least 6 feet (2 meters) from other people~Do not gather in groups
~Stay out of crowded places and avoid mass gatherings
Why? When someone coughs or sneezes they spray small liquid droplets from their nose or mouth which may contain a virus. If you are too close, you can breathe in the droplets, including the COVID-19 virus if the person coughing has the disease.
