Limiting face-to-face interaction with people is the best way to decrease the spread of corona virus disease 2019 (COVID-19) .
Social distancing is also called “physical distancing,” means keeping distance between yourself and further individuals outside of your house. To practice social distancing:
When COVID-19 is scattering in your zone, everybody should limit close interaction with persons outside your house in inside and outside spaces. Meanwhile, individuals can spread the virus before they recognize they are sick, it is essential to stay away from people when conceivable, even if you have no indications. Social distancing is particularly vital for individuals who are at higher risk of getting very sick.
COVID-19 extents mostly among persons who are in nearby interaction (within about 6 feet) for an extended period. Spread occurs when an infected individual sneezes, coughs or talks, and droplets from their mouth or nose are thrown into the air and land in the mouths or noses of individuals nearby. The droplets may be inhaled into the lungs. Latest studies show that persons who are infected but do not have indications likely also play a part in the spread of COVID-19.
It may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or eyes. However, this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads. COVID-19 can live for hours or days on a surface, depending on factors such as sun light and humidity. Social distancing helps limit contact with infected people and contaminated surfaces.
Although the risk of severe illness may be different for everyone, anyone can get and spread COVID-19. Everyone has a role to play in slowing the spread and protecting themselves, their family, and their community.
Stay connected while staying away. It is very important to stay in touch with friends and family that don’t live in your home. Call, video chat, or stay connected using social media. Everyone reacts differently to stressful situations and having to socially distance yourself from someone you love can be difficult.
Quarantine is used to keep someone who might have been exposed to COVID-19 away from others. Someone in self-quarantine stays separated from others, and they limit movement outside of their home or current place. A person may have been exposed to the virus without knowing it (for example, when traveling or out in the community), or they could have the virus without feeling symptoms. Quarantine helps limit further spread of COVID-19.
Isolation is used to separate sick people from healthy people. People who are in isolation should stay home. In the home, anyone sick should separate themselves from others by staying in a specific “sick” bedroom or space and using a different bathroom (if possible).
