5 Creative Ways to Stay Social During Social DistancingAs is the case for many of us, we are now self-isolating, or at the very least, social distancing, as per the Government guidelines. And if you’re not…you should be! We have to work together (apart) to slow down the spread of this illness, and we can only do that by taking some time away from one another. Social distancing is important because coronavirus spreads when an infected person coughs small droplets - packed with the virus - into the air. These can be breathed in, or can cause an infection if you touch a surface they have landed on, and then touch your face with unwashed hands. The less time people spend together, the less chance there is of this happening. Humans though, by nature are very social beings. Especially as the weather gets warmer, there’s nothing we like more than a few drinks in the park with our friends, and a big, slap-up meal in our favourite restaurants. It’s no fun to stay in, but we simply HAVE to. There are so, so many options for us all to stay positive and keep up to date with each other. Here are some of the best way to stay social in social isolation.
#1. Go to the Virtual PubJust because the pubs are closed doesn’t mean you can’t get down to your local…laptop bar. I joined a pub party with my friends on Friday, and we ended up having such as much (well, nearly) as much fun as we’d have had in real life, playing a quiz and singing karaoke. It’s also much cheaper than being out, so a win-win.
#2. Netflix Party
