Stay Social at a Safe Distance

April 16, 2020

You can help slow the spread of COVID-19 and still keep in touch with family and friends. Try these tips to stay safely connected while at home:

Reach out. Sometimes we need to remind ourselves how much a phone call, text or video chat can mean to others. Use this time to talk to that long-lost friend or a long-distance family member.

Connect virtually. Use technology such as video chat to stay connected with friends and family.

Go outdoors, if you can. Take a walk around the block. Check your community’s guidelines to see if parks or local areas are open. Be sure to keep a safe distance from others.

Limit media overload. Too much online news can be overwhelming. Step away and watch a funny movie or read a book to take your mind off the news.
