Just to reiterate what you obviously already know, social distancing (or physical distancing) means keeping some space between yourself and other individuals in public places. The CDC recommends staying at least 6 feet (about 2 arms’ length) apart, along with other preventative measures, including face masks and avoiding touching your face.
