If you are talking to someone and they are standing 6 feet away from you, does that feel unnatural to you? It probably does, but it has become the new normal. Social distancing was introduced as an effective method of fighting the coronavirus. Social distancing involves both keeping others at a distance and avoiding unnecessary interaction with people outside of your home. This has been a challenge for many since it keeps them away from the people and activities that they love, but it is going to save lives.
Some are disgruntled by these guidelines, especially if they are healthy themselves, but the problem is that those that don’t show any symptoms can spread it to those that are vulnerable, such as elderly ones or those with underlying health conditions they might not even be aware of.
It is definitely worth sacrificing some of our freedom of movement to keep those we love safe.
