Bookmarked Social Distancing: This is Not a Snow Day | Ariadne Labs (ariadnelabs.org)

I realize that not everyone can do everything. But we have to try our absolute best as a community, starting today. Enhancing social distancing, even by one day, can make a large difference.

Asaf Bitton explains how the current crisis is different to a ‘snow day’. He provides a number of steps to support this:

  • We need to push our local, state, and national leaders to close ALL schools and public spaces and cancel all events and public gatherings now.
  • Takecare of yourself and your family, but maintain social distance.
  • Reduce the frequency of going to stores, restaurants, and coffee shops for the time being.
  • If you are sick, isolate yourself, stay home, and contact a medical professional.

I really like the idea of supporting restaurants by purchasing gifts cards:

You can and should continue to support your local small businesses (especially restaurants and other retailers) during this difficult time by buying gift certificates online that you can use later.

What is interesting is how, even with the reference to snow, many of these ideas go beyond nation or location.
