Kenya continues to battle the COVID-19 pandemic with cases steadily rising each day. There are many things we can do to prevent the spread of virus that causes COVID-19. This includes washing our hands, coughing into our elbows, avoiding touching our faces, staying home if we’re feeling sick and social distancing.
What does social distancing mean?
Social distancing is the practice of purposefully reducing close contact between people. This includes: remaining out of “congregate settings” as much as possible, avoiding mass gatherings and maintaining distance of about 6 feet from others when possible. So actually it is physical distancing and using other means to continue social contact. There are many ways you can connect with friends: phone calls, text messages, emails and video chats are all great virtual options. While physical social distancing is important for our health, so is social interaction – trying alternative ways to stay connected is a good way to take care of your emotional health.
