Covid-19: Getting organised for social distancing

We are fortunate to have so many wide open spaces here in the North East, especially when it’s Low Tide. The advice about what we need to do to minimise the impact of Covid-19 are coming through thick and fast. Current advice from the government is asking us to take measures to reduce contact with others. These measures include self-isolation if you think you have symptoms of coronavirus and social-distancing to help reduce the transmission of the disease.

We are quickly using “social distancing” in our every day conversations like it is a term we have been using for years, rather than days. But as a community of humans, this is a very novel approach for most of us. Now the shock of our situation is starting to sink in, we need to take a step back and think about how we apply social-distancing.

This is the first of my posts that will share some useful resources to help you and your family and friends keep active, productive and positive over the coming months.

Today, I am sharing a useful guide from the Royal College of Occupational Therapists about how to stay well during social distancing.

As I would expect from my practical colleagues, there are some useful tips. Which ones do you think will help you?
