Hi there, Turner from the radio here.

Over the last week or more we’ve been told that we need to distance ourselves socially.

What exactly does that mean though, Turner?

Well, I’m glad you asked!

It means not getting together in large groups, and if you do run into people, you do your best to keep 6 feet or 2 meters between you and everyone else.

Clearly, the folks in the picture at the top of this article didn’t get the memo!

Take this “block party” as an example of good social distancing:

There’s a fun way to visit with your neighbours!

You can also use Skype or FaceTime to visit with friends of course.

Why is this so important?

Flus are very easily contracted through the touching of ones face.

If we can do our part to limit the exposure others receive, less and less people will contract Covid-19 and we can flatten the curve!

Stay home as much as you can, stay physically distant from others, and continue to wash your hands! That’s how you and I can do our part to stop the spread of infectious diseases like Covid-19.

Keep up the hard work and before we know it this will all be over.
