What It Really Means To Self Isolate. With the Coronavirus upon us, one of the best measures to control it is to self isolate. Having noted that though, it seems like a lot of people are are going the wrong way about it. To help you let us start by defining what self isolation is.
Self-isolation means staying indoors and completely avoiding contact with other people. This has to be done whether you have or don’t symptoms of coronavirus. This is to stop you and other people from getting it.
It really is as it suggests: go nowhere, see no one. Have deliveries left on the doorstep. Don’t see other self-isolating people. If possible sleep alone and to keep two metres away from those you live with.
If you are well, but you have been in close contact with a case of coronavirus you will need to restrict your movements. Restricted movements means avoiding contact with other people as much as possible by staying at home or in your hotel.
Keep yourself mobile by getting up and moving around as much as possible. If you have a garden, backyard or balcony go out and get some fresh air, but keep more than 2 metres away from other people.
