Why is the term “physical distancing” better than “Social Distancing”?

However, human beings are social beings.  At a March 20, news briefing, WHO officials said that physical distancing "does not mean that socially we have to disconnect from our loved ones, from our family."

While physical distancing and self-isolation are in effect, please remember to maintain social connections every day, integrating this into your daily schedule.  

Now more than ever, reach out and connect however you can. Let people know you care.  While a live human connection is best, a phone call, with a real voice, is still better than a text or email, and a video chat is even better than a phone call.  

This will bring a smile to your face!  We can almost guarantee it…
