Social distancing is a term applied to certain actions that are taken by Public Health officials to stop/slow down the spread of a very contagious disease. We are currently being told to social distance ourselves from those who are not direct family. The measures include, “limiting large groups of people coming together, closing buildings and canceling events.” It is very important that we listen to the people telling us to do this because they know what they are talking about.
The spread of COVID-19, a respiratory illness, throughout the world is why we are currently being told to social distance ourselves from others, in hopes to flatten the curve. We are, “deliberately increasing physical space between people to avoid spreading illness.” We all need to follow this or the disease is going to continue to spread.
As of today, April 3, 2020, in the United States there are currently 265,506 cases, 6,786 deaths, and 11,983 people have recovered. We must be social distancing! If we don’t, this virus is going to continue to spread and people are going to continue to die.Judge Memorial Catholic High School
