We’ve all been told to social distance, but not everyone knows what that means or how it helps. Some people are getting the wrong message about social distancing – that it means you can’t talk to anyone or leave your house at all. That’s just not the case. Humans are social creatures by nature, and getting social interaction is crucial. You just have to be smarter about how to prevent isolation during a pandemic.

It’s important to find ways to continue to get exercise and socialize throughout the pandemic. You don’t have to go through this alone!
