Being sensible whilst socialising

30 June, 2020

sensible whilst socialising

We need to be sensible whilst socialising. Every time we come into close contact with people, we’re also coming into contact with everyone they’ve spent time with.

The message from Dan Andrews is clear:

“Keeping your distance isn’t just for when you’re at the supermarket or out in public.
It’s something we have to maintain at all times, around anyone that’s not part of our immediate household.
Each time you socialise without physically distancing, you’re taking a big risk.
Not just for yourself. For everyone.
You may think that’s an overreaction. But it’s the frightening truth.
It only takes a few people getting too close and getting sick for this thing to take off again. That’s what we’re seeing now.
One more thing to remember:
Every interaction we have stays with us – for weeks.
And every time you come into close contact with people, you’re also coming into contact with everyone they’ve spent time with.
So please: use common sense – and keep your distance.

It’s up to all of us to keep each other safe.”

Got symptoms? See where you can get tested. And please, be sensible whilst socialising.
