Social distancing is a global public health strategy recommended to curtail the spread of COVID-19. Social distancing does not mean self-isolation, but it does mean that we must avoid close physical contact with other people and contaminated surfaces as much as possible.

Here are some do’s and don’ts of social distancing:

DO’s

  • Do keep a 1-metre distance between yourself and other people
  • Do use an alcohol-based sanitiser and wash your hands for 20 seconds
  • Do stay in touch with friends and family via phone, video chats and social media
  • Do keep a daily routine
  • Do exercise in open areas and/or take walks in your neighbourhood

DON’Ts

  • Don’t gather in groups of 5 of more
  • Don’t shake hands or hug people
  • Don’t accept visitors, or visit family and friends
  • Don’t go to bars, restaurants, hotels, gyms or playgrounds
  • Don’t make non-essential trips
