How to Social Distance in 2021 – What You Need to Know to Stay Safe

This virus has rocked the entire globe. New information continues to be discovered, but there’s still a lot we need to learn about the virus. While many families in the U.S. are starting to slowly integrate more of their pre-pandemic habits, it’s important to keep in mind the safety protocol from health officials.

According to the CDC, there are three primary ways that you can slow the spread of Covid-19. One of those ways is social distancing. At Central Carolina Air Conditioning, Plumbing & Electrical, we take extra precautions when visiting your home. Our technicians always wear masks and social distance and will abide by your standards when in your home to help keep you healthy and safe.

There are some ways to help when traveling and in public that will benefit not just yourself, but others as well.

 How to Socially Distance while Traveling

The CDC recommends that you continue to maintain 6 feet of space between you and others, whenever possible. It can be tempting to constantly grab onto any sides, railings, and other touchpoints throughout your traveling (especially while in airports). Try to minimize touching surfaces, since they tend to be gathering spots for germs. Of course, you can’t avoid touch points and surfaces completely when traveling. That’s why it’s a good idea to bring hand sanitizer and wear a quality face mask that is thick and will provide the best barrier possible.

How to Socially Distance While in Public

We all have to grocery shop, go to the doctor, fuel our cars, and complete other various errands.  So avoiding crowds of people isn’t always realistic.  I think this past year has taught us all to be smart and protect ourselves and others by wearing a quality face mask, washing our hands often and try to give others as much room as possible when in public.

Additionally, there are many services that companies are starting to offer remotely, giving you the option to order online without ever leaving your home. More employers are offering the option for their employees to work remotely if the job doesn’t require them to be physically present. Many meetings have shifted to a virtual platform. Some doctor’s appointments are fulfilled via phone instead of in person. Many food chains and restaurants have adapted to provide take-out and delivery services.

Some jobs, such as fixing your heating, cooling, and plumbing, cannot be done remotely. These are essential functions in your home, so they can’t be postponed either. Central Carolina Air Conditioning, Plumbing and Electrical is on call 24/7 to provide emergency service!

We also want you to have peace of mind, knowing that we follow all the CDC recommended guidelines. Each of our technicians will maintain social distancing protocols and wear a mask while working at your home. Give us a call with any questions at 1-800-461-3010. One of our team members will be happy to help!
