Is it Time to Leave the House?

Unfortunately, according to Scientist, Coronavirus-19 may be with us for some time, perhaps even years. There is no possible way for most people to remain in quartine, and homebound forever. Besides staying home, we know the necessary recommendations for remaining safe and virus free: wash your hands, wear a mask, and social distance.

Health experts indicate that the best way to slow the spread is to limit social contact as much as possible. There is no way that life will return to “normal,” as we re-emerge from quarantine. Nor is there a surefire way to eliminate our risk. A fact of life is that social distancing may be with us for a while.

Infectious disease epidemiologists from Harvard and Boston Universities say that there are options, and there is a middle ground between remaining in the house and venturing out. They’ve created an infographic to help us make decisions about social distancing as we leave our homes and begin socializing. Social distancing will only work if enough of us do it. If done correctly, it could mean the difference between the life and death of someone you know.
