Easy Ways To Create Social Distancing Awareness In Your Family!

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Social Distancing is the most suited tool to limit the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). However, we are unable to see everyone on the same page when the question of maintaining distance while the pandemic rises.

Countless young adults are trying to convey these details to their ageing parents and grandparents who are still going about their social routines as they normally do. All of this despite the fact they are one of the groups at common risk of complications.

What possibly can we do to get them to follow the proper precautionary measures?
How can we get others to respect our personal space during this time?
While we can’t manage what others are doing, these are the steps you can take to encourage your loved ones to engage in social distancing.

Let Everyone Know You’re Practicing Social Distancing

Let your social circle know you are practising social distancing. Convey to people about your wish to maintain physical distance during the epidemic. But don’t assume everyone will know exactly what guidelines are to be followed. Be precise about what you are doing and what you expect from others.

Explain Why It Is Important

People with a higher chance of complexities from COVID-19 are aged adults and those who have a serious underlying medical condition. This includes people of any age with asthma and similar chronic conditions.
Remind those around you that social distancing makes a difference in reducing the spread of the virus. Limiting physical touch with others can lessen the number of infections and protect those who may be the most vulnerable to serious complications.

Explain It In A Humorous Way

It might seem stupid to be sharing hand washing and social distancing memes in the midst of a dangerous pandemic. However, it can truly make people engage in those behaviours.

Recommended Tips For Social Distancing

  • Work from home if possible
  • Avoid social gatherings, for a while at least
  • Avoid eating out
  • Opt for online deliveries
  • Stay at least six feet away from others
  • Take care of your hygiene
