Are you keeping away from those you love? Just a few months ago, that would probably have indicated that there was some kind of problem in your family, but these days, we do it to keep them safe.
Social distancing is a term that we all have gotten more familiar with these days, and it really is having a positive effect. Unfortunately, while some trends are showing a downturn in the number of new cases as well as deaths, social distancing measures will be necessary for a long time.
Social distancing helps by limiting the risk of exposure, and it is especially important when it comes to those that are in the high-risk demographics, such as older ones and those with other health conditions that could lead to death if infected with the coronavirus. While the degree to which we practice social distancing, it might be with us until a vaccine is developed.
