While much of the focus lately has been on the importance of wearing face coverings, let’s not forget the power of maintaining 6 feet of distance from others not in our household. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and public health officials have told us that COVID-19 spreads mainly among people who are in close contact (within about 6 feet). Spread happens when an infected person coughs, sneezes or talks, and droplets from their mouth or nose are launched into the air and land in the mouths or noses of people nearby. The droplets can also be inhaled into the lungs.
Recent studies indicate that people who are infected but do not have symptoms likely also play a role in the spread of COVID-19. Since people can spread the virus before they know they are sick, it’s important to stay at least 6 feet away from others you’re not living with, even if you—or they—do not have any symptoms.
As you go about your daily life in Whether you’re at the grocery store, dining outdoors, or one of our city’s parks and open spaces, please help protect yourself and others by maintaining distance as much as possible.
