As week 3 of our social distancing regulations commence, it’s important to stay up-to-date as far as the latest developments are concerned — both with the spread of COVID-19 as well as what our current obligations are when it comes to social distancing and sheltering in place.
Health professionals and CDC figureheads are projecting that the US alone could face 100,000 deaths or more due to this serious illness, and our social distancing regulations are set to be in place through the month of April, meaning that most businesses will likely stay closed, especially in more densely populated urban centers.
We’re all being encouraged to stay at home. Of course, we still have a right to go outside, but only when we need to — to do a grocery run, to manage any essential daily functions, or to go out and stretch our legs cautiously and respectfully of others.
More than a few people are refusing to observe the regulations of social distancing by either having parties at home or continuing to go on with most of their normal daily activities, perhaps even hitting up the beach for leisure time.
That’s actually not what we’re trying to do here. We’re all expected to stay indoors and only go out when we absolutely have to.
An acceptable amount of times to go on a walk per day might be something like 1 or 2. Try not to go out for extended periods of time. If you have to connect with people during this time, do so with at least 6 feet of social distance.
Taking these measures seriously is for the greater good. Contact Lovett Chiropractic today to learn more about how we’re taking every measure to keep our community safe, to prevent the spread of COVID-19, and to provide our services while lending a helping hand throughout our community.
