How to deal with physical distancing – tips from outer space

25 March 2020

Last Sunday, when we all got the government alert on our mobile phones to stay at least 1.5 metres away from each other, we were reminded  to ensure ‘social distancing’ as a measure to prevent the spread of COVID-19.  We must follow this advice as it is in our common interest. Although, I don’t like the use of ‘social’ in this context, as I’m convinced that social contacts, be they online or at a distance are especially important in these times. As it has been suggested by others, I prefer the term ‘physical distancing’ to describe this need.
