You’ve probably heard this term being thrown about these past few months but what is the true meaning behind it?

This includes reducing how often we go out to visit our friends, other family members, how often we attend events and gatherings.

How do we stress this so that the world can understand? It is very important that we control and limit our social interaction as it will prevent the further spread of the coronavirus. If you don’t come into contact with people as often, you can’t pass on the germs.

In order to carry out social distancing in an effective manner, we all need to first understand how serious this global pandemic has become. Why? Because some people don’t realize the severity of this virus, ain’t that right, Vanessa Hudgens and co.?

There are many factors that make some people more susceptible to falling victim to the disease and it typically involves their health or their age.

But it’s not about you. It’s about everyone else. That’s why social distancing is important, in order to prevent further spread.

We know things seem hopeless right now, but these photos and tips are so heartwarming that your faith in our communities will be restored.
