What Is Social Distancing? [CHART]
Now with most schools in the Capital Region closed for at least a week and some for a month, it is important to know what the term "social distancing" means. Here is a chart that tells you where and what you should be doing during the coronavirus outbreak. The chart posted by the Saratoga County Prosperity Partnership outlines what is and isn't okay according to how we should be social distancing ourselves.
It is important to note that because most schools are closed in the Capital Region and that doesn't mean it's a typical snow day or spring break. You shouldn't make play dates with other families, have sleepovers, go to trampoline places, or movie theaters. Social distancing also means that you can visit some places for short periods of time while using caution like restaurants, grocery stores, and getting take out.
The safe things to do during this social distancing period are getting outside in the fresh air, cooking meals at home with family, family game nights, reading a book, and going for a drive.
