As the weeks drag on and people are stuck inside their homes, it is difficult to remember the importance of maintaining relationships.
Although we are all separated by miles, a close community is important now more than ever before.
While it is important to physically distance yourself from others, this does not mean you have to end social interactions. These can include playing a board game with your family, dropping off baked goods to friends, or picking up groceries for your neighbors.
This time is especially difficult for healthcare workers, some of whom must move out of their homes to keep their families safe. A thank you note, a phone call, or even a text message can remind these workers that the community appreciates their hard work.
Thus, we can still be a socially connected community.
