The Greeks developed a comprehensive philosophy of herbal medicine by 100 BCE and the Romans built upon it to create a variety of medical practices, some of which are still used today.

Many grocery stores and other venues that are still open have marked places where customers must stand. Don’t think of it as an inconvenience purposely put in place to annoy you. It has been proven social distancing really does work and helps to flatten the curve. You may want to consider enlisting a grocery delivery service or order your medications on line.


The CDC says when COVID-19 is spreading in your area, everyone should limit close contact with individuals outside your household in indoor and outdoor spaces. Since people can spread the virus before they know they are sick, it is important to stay away from others whenever possible, even if you have no symptoms. Social distancing is especially important for people who are at higher risk of getting very sick. These include people whose health is already compromised, those with underlying health concerns and people age 60 years and older.

SOCIAL DISTANCING WORKS!

It may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose or eyes. However, health officials do not think this is the main way the virus spreads. COVID-19 can live for hours or days on a surface, depending on factors such as sunlight and humidity. Social distancing helps limit contact with infected people and contaminated surfaces.


Although the risk of severe illness may be different for everyone, anyone can get and spread COVID-19. A person may have been exposed to the virus without knowing it (for example, when traveling or out in the community) or they could have the virus without feeling symptoms. Everyone can play a role in slowing the spread and protecting themselves, their family and their community. You can stay connected with family, coworkers and loved ones through phone calls, video chats and social media. Together we can stop the spread of COVID-19. The sooner we all comply, the sooner we will all be together again at work, worship, at restaurants and other social settings.

It’s a new phrase for most of us: social distancing. As the coronavirus pandemic widens, health officials have been advocating social distancing as the best way to prevent the spread of COVID-19.


Social distancing, also called physical distancing, means deliberately keeping physical space between yourself and other people outside of your home to avoid spreading illness. Staying at least 6 feet away from other people lessens your chances of catching and/ or spreading COVID-19. COVID-19 spreads mainly among people who are in close contact for a prolonged period. The disease spreads when an infected person coughs, sneezes or talks and droplets from their mouth or nose launch into the air and land in the mouths or noses of people nearby. The droplets can also be inhaled into the lungs. Recent studies indicate people who are infected but do not have symptoms likely play a role in the spread of COVID-19 as well.
