Social distancing, where you must stay at least 6 ft away from another person, is now the new norm. Distancing ourselves from others helps to protect us from the coronavirus. As we walk into supermarkets, restaurants and many other businesses, we see taped lines on the floor to remind us that we have to keep our distance. Employees also warn us about social distancing as they are doing a great job and remaining calm during this crisis. Since people want to stay healthy, social distancing is a rule that the majority of people are strictly following.
If we do happen to see one of our friends or neighbors, we must say hello from a distance. However, we can still remain close to our friends and loved ones by using facebook. Facebook has always been an important tool for socializing, but it is now even more significant due to social distancing.
Many people are indeed very nervous about the coronavirus, and we can help them feel better by talking to them on Facebok. If there was a time in which we needed true friends, it is now as we need plenty of courage to face all the challenges that await us due to this pandemic.
