#PhysicalDistancing – Three tweets from Dr. Teresa Tam, The Chief Public Health Office

Dr. Teresa Tam, the Chief Public Health Officer of Canada is suggesting a more accurate term to use in these times of crisis. Words are important because they can also dictate our behaviour.

1/3 Ok Canada, you said it #PhysicalDistancing is the new #SocialDistancing! We need to ↑ physical distance but NOT ↓ our virtual social interactions. Therefore, going forward I will be using #PhysicalDistancing. #COVID19 #TogetherApart

2/3 Practice #PhysicalDistancing by: Keeping 2 metres ↔ from others at all times; For those who have no symptoms – it’s okay to walk in the fresh air but the 2 metre-rule still applies, always, everywhere.

3/3 #PhysicalDistancing is not enough on its own. Pair with: disinfecting high touch surfaces, #WashYourHands frequently and only virtual socialising (no visits, no playdates) to #FlattentheCurve #PlanktheCurve #COVID19
