Staying connected while being physically apart: wellbeing in the time of social distancing.
During the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we’re asking you to, where possible, avoid contact with people who don’t live in your household. This will prevent the spread of germs; help stop people from getting sick and it will save lives. We expect this to be hard - it’s hard for all of us. But it’s the right thing to do at this time. We also know that feeling socially isolated can impact your mental wellbeing. It can make people feel sad, anxious, lonely and depressed. We want to make sure that during this time, you have ways to stay connected to your family, friends and community, even if you can’t see them in person.
