It is an action that has been taught to us since early childhood- getting together and smiling for a photo. It can be easy to forget- even for people who are taking social distancing seriously and working to keep others at arm’s length or further! It has been ingrained in us to wrap our arms around each other and “squeeze in”, but while we are in this pandemic, please don’t.
Still take photos, but try to keep a decent amount of distance, ideally 6 ft. according to the CDC, between you and others. Documenting this event is important and social media has been extremely useful in helping people feel connected during this time of isolation.
Precautions and recommendations are rapidly changing, so please be kind to each other and remind our friends and neighbors how much we care about them, even if you have to do it from a little further away.
