Stay Home. Be Safe

By EMN Updated: Mar 27, 2020 10:37 pm

Good hygiene and social distancing remain the top two tactics. This is a great time to practice restraint. Nothing has changed about the way COVID-19 spreads. “Social distancing” remains the only way to combat the spread of the pandemic. The only thing we can do today is to take the responsible decision to stay at home. As thoughtful citizens, the information that we have tells us that the only way to stop this monster is with social distancing. Physical distancing is a key component to decrease asymptomatic spread. Social distancing is crucial for preventing the spread of contagious illnesses such as COVID-19.  Despite the advice of the World Health Organization and the recommendations of the health authorities of the countries most affected, many people continue to heed and take responsibility for the pandemic.

It’s important to note that some drawbacks of social distancing can include loneliness, reduced productivity, and the loss of other benefits associated with human interaction. Avoiding crowds of people will be important in slowing the spread of the Coronavirus. It helps to stop COVID-19 from spreading rapidly and also helps to keep the number of people who are sick at one time as low as possible. If we care about the well-being of anyone besides ourself, we need to stay at home right now. Let us work to practice social distancing instead of deliberately making selfish choices that put others in danger. Be safe. Do not panic.
