What is social distancing?

  • Maintain a distance between you and other people, in this case six feet
  • Minimize contact with people
  • Avoid public transportation whenever possible
  • Limit nonessential travel
  • Work from home
  • Skip social gatherings

Every single reduction in the number of contacts you have per day will have a significant impact on the ability of the virus to spread in the population.
