Now, you’ve heard the suggestion that to slow the spread of coronavirus in the US, we need to practice social distance. But if you are confused about what it looks like in practice, we have some answers.

On Monday, the White House announced over the next two weeks, urging Americans to avoid gathering in groups of more than 10 people; to avoid discretionary travel, travel, shopping or social visits; and do not go to a restaurant or bar.

This guide is based on a new model of how the virus spreads strength, according to the White House task force coronavirus.

“What has the greatest impact in this model of social distance, small groups, will not be publicly in large groups,” Birx said the White House press conference on Monday.

Also important, says Birx, are 14 quarantine -Day of any household where one person is infected with coronavirus. In the model, “which stops outside the transmission of 100% of households,” he

The federal government urged the elderly and people with serious health conditions that underlie -. Such as lung or heart conditions or a weakened immune system -. for “home stay and away from others” because the data show that these groups are the most susceptible to developing a severe form of COVID-19, a disease caused by a coronavirus new

“Every single generation has a role to play , “Birx said Tuesday at the White House press conference. “We asked our older generation to stay in their home. We ask young people to stop going out in public places, bars and restaurants, and spread the virus without symptoms to countertops and buttons.”

So what is and is not OK in our new world of social distance? Can I have people above or go visit Grandma? This is what has the new CDC guidelines and other health experts say

Can I go to a restaurant, food court or bar

According to the new guidelines Monday, no -.? At least not for eating. The CDC says people should use the drive-through, pickup or delivery of choice instead.

When you get home with your meal, you can take it out of the container, discard them, and then wash your hands thoroughly before eating, says a population health researcher at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia. “We do not want to get too crazy about it, but took precautions should be enough,” he said.

Fortunately, the food itself “may not be a major risk factor here,”, an infectious disease expert at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, was because most infection of coronavirus emerging to start with the respiratory system, instead of the digestive tract.

at the grassroots level, people are also urging people to support their favorite local restaurants and retailers to purchase a gift certificate that they can use later.

How to visit grandma and grandpa?

The federal government asking visitors to stay away from retirement or nursing homes and long term care facilities unless they will provide substantial assistance.

This one is difficult, because of social isolation has become a problem for many parents. But as Birx noted Monday, “We know there is a large group [of people infected] – we do not know exactly percent yet -. That really asymptomatic or have mild cases as they continue to spread the virus”

That includes children. A journal Pediatrics in the finding that 13% of children with confirmed cases of COVID-19 did not show symptoms.

Given all that, “we recommend that older adults avoid contact with children,” said, a geriatrician at Mount Sinai Health System in New York. “We want to minimize the risk that the child express the disease to their grandparents, who are at increased risk.”

Of course, it could be difficult for everyone involved, but now is the timeto think about virtual visits with grandma – whether it’s Facetime calls or streaming movies you all watch it together, almost, Morrison said. That does not mean there are no visits to grandparents – .. But do not keep young children away

Drew Harris suggest now may be a care package for elderly relatives, rather than in-person visits < p> But I am a healthy adult, not a child. Is it OK to visit my elderly relatives

“Do not visiting older relatives unless absolutely necessary -? As in, they need food, they need help at home, they need supplies or they need their medicine , “Morrison said. He said that every parent needs to stay home grown now with plenty of food and medicine supplies on hand. And adult children must have a back-up plan to care for elderly parents in case they get sick, because they are people who are at highest risk of coronavirus.

But do try to keep in touch on a regular basis so that older relatives do not feel too isolated. Now would be a good time to teach your mom and dad how to use the video call if they do not know already.

I still need to go to work. Is it OK to drop my son off at daycare?

Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and the main adviser on the response of the federal government COVID-19, said the new CDC guidelines have not addressed the question. But do not worry about the salary increase spread of the virus at day care. Pediatrician at Baylor College of Medicine, who co-wrote a commentary, acknowledged that some parents, especially low income, will not have the option of keeping their children at home with them.

In that case, Cruz said, trying to find a care setting day with a small number of children, do not send them to child care if they are sick, and make sure the children get a flu shot them (it will not protect them against coronavirus but still flu season). And he said the day care provider should wipe down toys, especially plastic, often with That’s because the evidence shows that the coronavirus can live on surfaces such as plastic for up to 72 hours.

So why the concern over the matter? Cruz said there was evidence that an infected person can shed virus in their feces for several weeks after the diagnosis. The most common tests for the coronavirus can not distinguish whether the virus into the barn was alive or dead, note Cruz. But she said the findings do pay increase caregiver concerns changing diapers for children who are not potty trained potentially exposed to the virus. “I think child care, if the children are older who are all trained in the toilet, it’s less of a risk,” said Cruz.

Are children play date OK?

Millions of American parents are now trying to find ways to work from home – while also tend to be children of the school were closed to fight the spread of the coronavirus. play dates seem like an obvious solution to help small children burn off energy when you get a job. But while the CDC does not offer official guidance here, some experts say play dates might defeat the purpose of everyone hunkering down.

“I personally took the line that is really tight,” said. “I would say that inherently have a risk play date – .. I do not know how big or small, but if we can put them off for a few weeks and replacing it with a family, it would be better”

He notes that children of elementary school age get about five virus infection average season. “If they play with three or four friends, each one will be around to own, possess or get over a viral disease that can they then, unfortunately, shares,” he said. And at this moment, he said, it was not just the coronavirus that is a concern, but every virus that may cause a child in need of medical attention. That’s because you want to avoid a doctor visit if you can, both to avoid the possibility of being infected with the coronavirus and to avoid overloading the health care system.

What’s more, the symptoms COVID-19 average take five days to appear from the time of infection – but one can still pass it on to someone else during that time. So while it may be tempting to have one or two more children, do not do it, say, a primary care physician and public health researcher affiliated with Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.

“Someone who comes in the look can also transmit the virus,” wrote Bitton in But “even if you choose only one to have more friends, you are creating new links and possibilities for this type of transmission that all school / work / closing public event we are trying to prevent, “he wrote.

a developmental behavioral pediatrician at the University of Michigan, said the goal is for parents to exposure limits, period. “My guidance now for the family is, as much as possible, do not have your children in someone else’s house. Not having children of others in your home. There are moments in which to child care settings or for an absolute requirement, you must have one or two or more children together. But if possible, really just keep the kids at home. “

How to play outside with other children or go to the park?

If you let your kids outside to play with other people, make sure the kids keep at least 6 foot distance from other children (which can be very difficult for young children to obey) that’s because the virus can be transmitted between – .. about 6-foot radius “We’re avoiding playgrounds and other places that germs can piling up, “said Radesky.

and for adults, what about having close friends during the visit?

guidelines for new CDC is to avoid, a social visit for today again, think maya – .. Facetime may have a dinner party with friends

Morrison says the answer partly depends on where you live if there is a wide transmission coronavirus in your community, the advice is to skip the visitor at all. But “if you located in areas where there is little spread of ma the public, the then restrict visitors rather than eliminating them, in my opinion, may be a reasonable approach. “He suggested limiting their interaction with one friend at a

trip. Can I time? I saw the plane really cheap now.

CDC tell people to avoid discretionary travel. Think about it: It can be difficult to stay at least 6 feet from other people on an airplane. And even if you’re planning on driving to your destination, the whole purpose of this 15-day period is hunkering down to keep your germs to yourself so that we slow down the spread of the virus – a concept known as. That means minimizing contact with others outside your immediate home.

I had a doctor’s visit was scheduled months ago. Should I still go?

If it is non-essential visits to the doctor or dentist, reschedule it, Birx said Tuesday in a White House news conference. “Things do not need to be done during the next two weeks, did not finish it. If you people with elective surgery, you do not want to go to the hospital now.” He urged people to “responsible” for the release of hospital beds and space.

I have to go to the grocery store. How do I do it the safest way for me and others?

This is regarded as an important trip, of course. But try to go to the grocery store during off-peak hours, when it tends to be crowded, say, an assistant professor of pediatrics and communicable diseases at the University of Colorado School of Medicine.

Harris said he was wiping down the handle on a shopping cart or basket when she shops. The shops were visited to offer wipes, but also must work hand sanitizer.

Both Harris and Morrison suggest being careful not to touch your face with your hands when you are in the store, and wash your hands before and after going. And try to keep a distance of at least 6 feet from other people. “Social distancing …. does not mean that no one has ever set foot out the front door,” said Morris. “This means be careful.”

Once you unload food at home, wash your hands again, Harris said. And if you are in high-risk groups such as the elderly or immunosuppressed, she suggests asking others to shop for you or have groceries delivered instead.
