Social distancing is a new term for most of us. While it sounds isolating, today’s variety of advanced technologies actually allow us to stay connected while keeping a safe distance to preserve everyone’s health. Use the simple stoplight chart below to help guide your choices on how you interact with others while we work through this temporary situation.
“Won’t you be my neighbor?”
Today (March 20th) would have been Fred Rogers’ 92nd birthday, and he always encouraged his viewers to “look for the helpers” in times of crisis. We’ve all been urged to stay at home and limit contact with other groups of people which can feel scary for some.
Be sure to check on your neighbors, especially the elderly, and offer to donate or swap services to help out during this universal time of need.
There also are a number of services that allow us to continue some semblance of “normal” while minimizing potential exposure to and spread of the virus:
School districts are distributing meals to those who rely on them during the school year.
Local grocery stores and restaurants are offering to-go discounts, complimentary curbside pick-up and/or home delivery services.
–Physicians have expanded virtual office visits, and several local hospitals are providing drive-thru testing for the COVID-19 virus.
–Get a change of scenery when you explore some of Virginia’s most popular museums and attractions through a variety of virtual tours.
Ready to explore beyond the commonwealth? You also can take in a Broadway show, see an opera, and check out all the streaming travel shows available now while you’re stuck at home.
About the SNJB
The South Norfolk Jordan Bridge is a high-level, fixed span bridge that links Chesapeake and Portsmouth across the Elizabeth River’s Southern Branch. Its soaring height eliminates bridge lifts and railroad crossings that stop traffic. Plus, the electronic collection system keeps traffic flowing smoothly without the need to stop at a toll booth. For more information about this privately-built and operated bridge, visit www.SNJB.net.
