After doing food shopping at the local grocery store this morning from 7 to 8am, when it was not at all crowded and shelves were stocked, we came back home so as to limit contact with others.
It was such a beautiful sunny day today, we sat around a fire outside (yes, I have our burn permit :)) and roasted hot dogs and marsh mellows. This was a way to have some family over and keep our distance (no hugs!).
Many of you know the Simcoe District Health Unit COVID – 19 site provides much information and regular updates.
As we are hearing, we can work to get ahead of this by conscientiously practicing social distancing.
Social distancing involves taking steps to limit the number of people you come into close contact with. Social distancing includes, but is not limited to:
o working from home where possible;
o avoiding visits to long-term care homes, retirement homes, supportive housing, hospices and other congregate care settings unless the visit is absolutely essential;
o avoiding non-essential trips in the community;
o ensuring vehicle windows are down if you have to go into the community for an essential trip via taxi or rideshare;
o limiting or cancelling group gatherings;
o conducting meetings virtually instead of in person.
o spending time outside and in settings where people can maintain a 2 metre (6 feet) distance from each other.
Stay well, be positive and help others.
