There are many different methods that have been encouraged for us to keep ourselves from getting infected by the coronavirus. Not touching our face, wearing a face mask, and precautions like those, but one of the methods that really has shown itself to be effective is social distancing. By giving one another space, we can prevent the spread of the virus. The recommended distance is 6 feet, but there are certain situations where more distance is needed, such as when someone is coughing or sneezing. This is why stores have started limiting how many people can be inside at one time, restaurants focus on takeout and delivery, and many citizens have chosen to shelter in place.
This is an important measure, despite the inconvenience that it causes. While you might not fare too badly from the virus, you run the risk of infecting older ones or those with underlying problems that can lead to serious side effects.
