I don’t know if this is true for many of you, but I have recently been hearing from a few people that the way many of my parents reacted to the coronavirus situation was by not social-distancing in the way they should have been. My parents are no longer on the list of the people who should be social distancing.
I know this might sound strange to some of you, but there’s nothing inherently wrong with not social-distancing. You’re allowed to be around people as long as you’re not sick. You can even be in your own home as long as you’re not sick. These are pretty reasonable rules of thumb.
The only thing worse than social distancing is not keeping in touch with your own family, friends, or anyone in your household. If you’re on social distancing you will probably find yourself with more security and more control.
But for the reasons mentioned above for not keeping in touch, I have a huge aversion to social distancing. I think the reasons are pretty obvious. No one wants to see their neighbors, co-workers, or friends sick. So if youre not a doctor, nurse, or engineer, you can’t really be that important to anyone. And unless youre an important person, there is really no reason to stay home. Theres no reason you should be out of touch.

I thought I had a really good idea. I put a timer on my bedroom computer to make sure I don’t put too much time into setting up my Internet-hosting-apps, but I didn’t know how to keep that going, so I’m gonna do it now, but if I’m not going to get it working, I’ll do it myself.
I see a lot of people who say, “I dont want anyone to know that I’m home.” I don’t understand that. I’m not asking you to be secret, but just to be careful. The majority of people I know who dont have sick family members are doing great. I mean, a lot of them have been tested for the virus, and most have been found to be fine.
You don’t need to be home to catch the flu, but being home can be a good thing. Most people who don’t have sick family members are still getting tested, and a good number of them are still in good health. The reason that being home is important is that it means that your family and friends are safe. They will know where you are, you can be tested in the hospital, and they can follow your symptoms.
The CDC has found that many of our family members also have a good chance of being immune. The virus is much more contagious among the elderly, people with severe chronic illnesses, those with immune system problems, and those with weakened immune systems. We are working with public health officials to make sure that we are all healthy and getting tested regularly, as well as providing the best possible health care for everyone.
While this is a huge step forward, it is still possible for people who are sick to spread the virus to others. For example, a person who is infected with the measles or the flu, but is immune, can spread the virus to others, sometimes for the rest of their lives. We have to keep in mind that many of the people who are sick with these illnesses are already living with the disease and can spread it to others.
