Social vs. physical distancing
As many of us are getting accustomed to working from home, we wanted to take this opportunity to share the differences between social/physical distancing and self-isolation.
In the absence of face-to-face contact, you can watch the following five minute video as Natasha explains the differences between these new terms that we’re all getting used to with COVID-19.
Here are a couple of important reminders:
- Stay home if you are sick.
- As per Alberta Health Services, if you have symptoms including fever, cough, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, sore throat, runny nose or nasal congestion or have been exposed to someone who has COVID-19, you MUST self-isolate for 14 days.
- Complete the COVID-19 online self-assessment tool available on the Alberta Health Services website to determine if you should receive testing for COVID-19.
- Remember that masks are not needed if you are healthy. The mask supply is critical and we need to do our part to ensure health-care workers and first responders get what they need.
- Continue to practice good hand hygiene and cough/sneeze etiquette.
- For up to date information and frequently asked questions regarding COVID-19, please refer to the Alberta Health Services website. And if you can’t find the answer, you may send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
We all have a personal responsibility in the fight against COVID-19. We all must adhere to the directives and guidelines from the health agencies in order to flatten the curve. And remember that you are not alone! Reach out to your family, friends, and co-workers. Go outside and hug the air and find joy in the simple things. As an Airport community we are resilient and together we will get through this! Stay healthy everyone!
