Physical Distancing Tips

Six Feet Saves Lives: Keep Your Distance

Physical Distancing Saves Lives 

Six feet saves lives. Maintaining physical distancing is more than a request, a guideline or a preventative measure. It’s one of the key weapons we have in defending against the spread of COVID-19, and it’s one we can utilize to save lives.

Currently, there is no approved vaccine or medication for COVID-19, and our bodies have yet to develop an immunity to it. COVID-19, like any virus, needs human beings to replicate and survive. Physical distancing — staying six feet apart from people when shopping or walking and working from home if possible, avoiding groups larger than 10 — is a way to rob this virus of what it needs to survive, reduce the number of lives lost and bring an end to this difficult time much sooner. 

Six Feet Saves Lives: Personal ResponsibilityPersonal Responsibility 

Six feet saves lives. And while you may not be able to control others, you can control yourself. If we each stay at home as much as possible, if we each maintain physical distancing, if we each wash our hands frequently, we can control the spread of COVID-19 and we’ll get through this faster. We will get through this together — six feet apart.

Six Feet Save Lives: The Distance of 2 Shopping CartsWhat Does 6 Feet Look Like? 

Six feet. Two words have never been more important. “What can I do to protect my family from COVID-19?” Think six feet. “What can I do to help stop the spread of COVID-19?” Think six feet. Physical distancing is one of the greatest defenses you can employ in the fight against this virus. In fact, your biggest impact can be summed up in two words: six feet. Because six feet saves lives.

Six Feet Saves Lives: Keep Your Family Safe

Keep Your Family Safe 

Fact: COVID-19 spreads from person to person through droplets. Fact: It doesn’t know that you might live with your spouse, your son, your brother and his wife. Fact: The virus doesn’t understand that you are an essential worker and you come home to your family every night. Always stay six feet apart from others when you leave your house. Think about staying six feet apart even at home. It could be the difference between life and death.

Six Feet Saves Lives: Connect Virtually

Connect Virtually 

Six feet saves lives. We know it’s hard. You can’t see your friends, you might not even be able to see your family. We’re in the same boat. But we all can connect virtually. Skype. Call. Text. Keep these connections alive. Don’t let COVID-19 steal them from you. Don’t let this virus have control over “seeing” family and friends via phone or computer.

Six Feet Saves Lives: Kindness is KeyKindness is Key 

Staying six feet apart can be tough. But it saves lives. This virus is causing a lot of disruption in our lives. Events and celebrations we’ve been looking forward to are canceled or postponed. The reason: to stop the spread. Remember to show kindness to others and acknowledge we’re all making sacrifices to fight COVID-19. We’ll get through this together — six feet apart.


Six Feet Saves Lives: Be SMART


Six feet saves lives. Be SMART about COVID-19. Stay at home as much as possible. Maintain six feet between yourself and others. Avoid spreading rumors; always check the source you’re getting information from. Reach out to others; distancing our bodies doesn’t mean we have to be distanced at heart. Take care of your mental and emotional health. We’re all in this together — six feet apart.

Houses of Worship

We understand canceling religious services, in particular, has a significant impact on communities, congregations and organizations — religiously, spiritually, morally, and emotionally. Gatherings should be done remotely by webinar, teleconference, social media, and/or telephone.
