Social distancing versus self-isolation

Social distancing and self-isolation are not interchangeable! The only commonality is to wash your hands thoroughly and frequently!

 

EVERYONE in the UK should be social distancing at the moment.
  • Avoid contact with other people unless necessary. SIMPLE!
  • Work from home unless you are a key worker
  • Keep children at home unless you are a key worker
  • Avoid public transport.
  • Do not go to public buildings such as a GP surgery.
  • Don’t attend parties or social gatherings.
  • You can go for walks but try to stay 2 metres away from any other person

 

Self isolation is for those at risk, the vulnerable, including the elderly and pregnant.
  • Stay at home and do not go out. SIMPLE!
  • If you or anyone in your family has symptoms then stay in the house for 14 days and avoid having visitors.

 

We all need to play our part in saving lives.
This is only temporary.
The sadness of not seeing loved ones for big events like Mother’s Day or birthdays is tiny compared to the grief of losing a loved one and bearing the guilt of being responsible for infecting them.
PLEASE support your community and country by staying home unless absolutely necessary!

  1. I wish people would take more notice of this. The only people I’ve seen walking past my window today are people walking their dogs and groups of teenagers. Ugh! My teen’s friends were meeting in town today. They don’t seem bothered by this at all. Thankfully my teen had the sense not to even ask to go out. x
