Physical (or social) distancing means limiting your physical contact with other people in order to stop, slow down or contain the spread of COVID-19. Everyone has a part to play in reducing the spread of COVID-19.
You should try to stay home as much as possible.
If you do have to leave home for essentials such as groceries or medications, avoid crowds and maintain a distance of 2 arm lengths from other people. Try to go during off-peak hours.
Physical distancing doesn’t have to mean social distancing. There are lots of ways to stay connected with your family and friends, such as Facetime or Skype, telephone calls, and social media.
