COVID-19: Physical Distancing
Physical distancing helps limit the spread of COVID-19 – this means we keep a distance of at least 1m from each other and avoid spending time in crowded places or in groups.
Protect yourself and others. Break the chain of transmission.
Be a hero and break the chain of COVID-19 transmission by practicing physical distancing.
This means we keep a distance of at least 1m from each other and avoid spending time in crowded places or in groups.
We do not always know who may be sick with coronavirus.
That’s why it’s important to stay home and practice physical distancing. If we must go out, e.g. to buy groceries or for medical reasons, we should stay at least 1m away from others.
Staying at home as much as possible is the right thing to do now.
Limiting gatherings with people outside your household – like group activities and religious events – can reduce the spread of COVID-19.
Even small group activities can lead to COVID-19 spreading.
Staying home and connecting with friends and family through a call or video chat is a smart choice.
If you’ve been asked to self-isolate or self-quarantine, there is a good reason for this. No one wants to be responsible for making other people sick.
Protect yourself and others. Do your part. Break the chain of COVID-19 transmission.
Physical distancing is new for all of us, so it can feel strange. But it’s the smart choice.
We can stay socially connected while physically distant – through video, call or text.

Try to stay active in your home or outdoors while keeping a distance of at least 1m from others.
Some of our common habits, like greeting each other with a hug or handshake, put us in close contact with others and can cause COVID-19 to spread.
Let’s keep a distance of at least 1m from one another – even when saying hello!
While you may need to leave your home while physical distancing, follow national health advice and stay safe.
Together, we can break the chain of COVID-19 transmission.
