Social Distancing Is the Key to
Reducing the Spread of This Virus

Yes, washing your hands and being careful
with your coughing and sneezing
are important,

but

it is of the utmost importance
in tackling this pandemic for you to
follow the various guidelines for
Self-isolation & Social Distancing:

> avoiding crowds
> keeping your distance and
> interacting with as few people
and places as possible

=======

So what can you do
until this is under control?


Stay informed:
find reliable news sources;
don't fall victim to
scams, schemes and miracle cures
(they're out to get you, too).

Go outside:
take a walk, go birding,
away from crowds.

Stay inside:
keep your distance,
postpone trips and visits that you
can put off for a couple of weeks.

Stay in touch virtually:
phone, social media, video chats,
hear your friends' ideas, opinions & concerns,
(but rumors can be dangerous, so
remember the first tip above.)

Pay attention:
to your health, the
health of those around you, and
the guidelines and restrictions provided
by your community leaders.

===

Washing your hands is good for your health.

Self-isolation and Social Distancing
are crucial for overcoming this pandemic
and for everyone's health.
