The more space between you and others, the harder it is for virus to spread.
“Many people with COVID-19 don't develop or show any symptoms and don't feel unwell, that is why it is important to practice social distancing at all times to avoid contact with someone who is infected but not showing any symptoms. For practicing social distancing, we should avoid having guests/neighbours visit our homes to reduce the risk of infection transmission. As a measure for social distancing in public places and workplaces wearing a face cover is compulsory,” the bulletin reads.
