Give Me Six Feet

Everyone is talking about “Social Distancing” and the importance of it right now during this COVID-10 pandemic.  Also, another buzz phrase is “flatting the curve.”  What does all this mean?


In this photo is the Big Dawg DreDay from 105.1 The Block and Tommy Paradise from 95.3 The Bear, and they are giving you an example of what it looks like to stay six feet apart.  Also, according to my friend, I’ve been disinfecting and doing six feet for quite some time.  Check out this videos from my friend Actress and Comedian, @CristalBubblin!  It’s a good laugh!


Social Distancing

I’ve been telling everyone, give me six feet, please. [In my cutest and sweetest voice, I can give] USA Today said that “droplets can be inhaled or even land in the mouths or noses of those nearby. Personal contact is usually between two people, six feet apart or less. The virus can also live for hours or days on hard surfaces like desks or doorknobs.”  According to NPR, President Donald Trump has given this guidance, “Therefore, my administration is recommending that all Americans, including the young and healthy, work to engage in schooling from home when possible, avoid gathering in groups of more than 10 people, avoid discretionary travel and avoid eating and drinking at bars, restaurants and public food courts.

Flattening The Curve

The HUB of Johns Hopkins University, mentions that “with COVID-19, the goal of social distancing right now is to slow down the outbreak in order to reduce the chance of infection among high-risk populations and to reduce the burden on health care systems and workers. Experts describe this as "flattening the curve," which generally refers to the potential success of social distancing measures to prevent surges in illness that could overwhelm health care systems.”

I encourage you not to panic, be resourceful, and make smart decisions for you and your family based on facts and not fear.  @MaryKRadio
