While it may be very disappointing to hear that you can’t make it out to The Social Grill during the Lockdown, we do all agree that limiting Social experiences help limit the spread of the COVID-19 Virus.
Keeping a distance of around two meters away from people in public and using a mask responsibly, will help impact the spread. So even though it has meant many of our lives have been impacted in many ways, if we are all united in flattening the curve, we can make a new future starting now.
Tips for social distancing
- Follow guidance from authorities that were issued in the Government Gazette
- When you need to shop for food or medicine, stay at least two meters away from other people.
- Avoid gatherings in private and public spaces, such a friend’s house, parks, restaurants, shops, or any other place.
- Try avoid using any kind of public transportation, Uber, or taxis.
- If you are a student or parent, talk to your school about options for digital/distance learning.
- Work from home when possible.
For other health reasons it is very important to stay in contact with friends and family that don’t live in your home. Call, video chat, or stay connected using social media. This period will induce fear, panic and major stress so stay active and try eat as healthy as possible.
